It happened again

k75s postoffice

I came out of the post office yesterday morning to find a blonde in her 40s ogling my '94 K75S.

And, of course, she observed, "I didn't know BMW made motorcycles."

That’s one of the top three dopey things BMW riders hear from non-riders. The other two are:

  • “Aren’t those leathers hot?”
  • “Did you ride all the way here?”

The answers to all are “yes.”

I posted this exchange on BMW-related Facebook pages and drew hundreds of comments. The best came from Dana Harlan:

Once outside a cafe on a ride from Pennsylvania to Newfoundland a woman said, "ha, ha, you just stuck those (tank badges) on there!" We didn't correct her.
