What's the dumbest thing anyone has said about your bike/gear?
 
I recall getting gas on one of my motorcycle trips, and as I'm fueling up in my full leathers, I heard the cager next to me comment about how ridiculous my gear looks and I must be stupid for wearing it in 100+ degree weather. I wanted to respond "well please stop trying to kill me on the streets and all this gear would not be necessary" argh!

What is the dumbest thing anyone has said about your gear or bike? Tell us the story, give details!

Then there is the standard response to the motorcycle commuter. Leaving the office in leathers / winter gear someone will regularly ask:
'Do you ride a motorcycle?'

Usually respond that its just the need to wear leather

At a party I had a fella, who was a bit of a jerk ask me if I got bugs in my face?
I just looked him straight in the eye and said "just one."

In Australia the standard thing is ....

"Oh so youre a temporary Australian "

To which I reply ..

"Yeah ... and I have been for 45 years"


Its more effective on those who werent even born that long ago.

I love rolling into work in pissing rain wearing a rain suit, then the inevitable "bit wet mate?" question comes....

Its fuggin hilarious when i peel it off and im bone dry compared with the dick that just asked the question walked 300 meters in pouring rain.

Wow! that's a lot of gear you're wearing says the girl on a scooter wearing flip flops and a skirt.
I say:
The pavement feels the same when you fall off a scooter or a sportbike.
Good luck with your skin graft lady

Always - while fueling up at the pump, some dick-week comes up and tells me how his brother was killed or crippled on a bike, and how he would never get on a bike again. To which I always reply, "That's nice... now you'll live forever, right?"

"Sorry, I didn't see you."

Somebody (usually clean cut): "Wow! What kind of motorcycle is that?"
Me: "It is a Triumph."
The same Somebody: "Cool! Who makes it?"
