Today was too beautiful a day not to ride. I was supposed to meet some friends and take a ride through the Missouri springtime. I went to meet them, but everyone had excuses and only 1 other rider showed. I shook my head and had to laugh.The other rider and I have ridden together many times (he has a sharp Wide Glide - lots of chrome, dark teal blue color). Anyway, great ride for about an hour. Stopped at a local beverage and food dispensary, and while we were enjoying our orange juice, a couple walked by the bikes. They walked around mine, taking pictures, my buddy nudging me saying " You got a nibble". Sure enough, the couple came in and asked whose Indian. Small conversation about my bike; nothing about his. I just had to laugh. We left to go up the street to Leatherman's (great accessory store for bikers). Parked in front with dozen other bikes (Mostly U2s) and he went in for patch. I sat out front and counted 6 people making comments about the Indian, nothing on the others, and I had to laugh.He came out and sat for few more minutes. Another few people went by and more questions. This time, my buddy answered the Indian questions. And I had to laugh. Later, after I left to come home ( had to try - 6500rpm, 3rd gear 85-90), I just smiled. Back in town, 2 blocks from home, stopped at local beverage house, and got more questions when another rider came. Said he parked next to my bike because it made his bike look better. And I just had to laugh.
