If somebody said that to me about my Triumph, I would just shrug. I'm used to it. If the bike is still running, whatever fell off can't have been too important.

...I had a similar prank for H.D.'s.
I would say something small and chrome fell off their bike about a mile back. They always believed me. :twisted:
That is such a nasty thing to do, Doug. Sociopathic evil in fact. It could ruin the poor guy's day. Maybe his whole life.

I can't wait to try it.
I wouldn't do it to civilized Harley riders, but around here there seem to be an awful lot of obnoxious jerks with straight pipes purposefully disturbing neighbourhoods with their "look at me I'm so badass" attitude. Poseurs. :roll:
I've spent most of my money on women, motorcycles, and beer.
The rest of it I just wasted.

Harley riders showing colors rarely wave at us anyway on our airheads.

I can only imagine how they will love picking up my new light bike to part out. If they only knew the worldwide market for used airhead parts, we wouldn't have any more on the street. :)
I always brake in corners and think how I am going to get home if I really mess up. When I get home, I wished that I hadn't used my brakes and should have ridden a bit further.

The G310 is nice but this is what I'd really like, I haven't ridden one, just the reviews and pics.

Very cool bike. A bit on the exotic side.
