A few days back, I went for a putt and found myself 100 miles from no-where. Anyways, nowhere had a coffee shop (of course) and I pulled in and parked next to two other bikes (Harley and a Yamaha) both nice bikes. After I exchanged nods and pleasantries, I went in and got a coffee and came back out. I was talking with the fellas when a road crew pulled up, (dozer, dump-truck etc.) The guys all hopped out, strode over, walked by the other two bikes and circled around mine. The questions began.....first one everytime, "What is it?"...lol...(always means how many cc's). "900" I replied, "wow" One guy said, "it sure "looks" like a big bike". "All I need" I replied. Then the what year, is it easy on gas....all the regular questions. They got their coffee's, circled back around the 9, talked a spell....I finished mine and said my "take it easy's"....and left. I was thinking later that they never once even looked at the other two bikes. It's funny when you look at your bike through another's eyes...ya kinda appreciate it all over again. Well, it's nice to have bragging rights.....lol. Congrats to last months BOTM winner, it kind of exemplifies (to me)...what a beauty these 9's really are.
