Default I had to smile....

Just thought I'd share a fun moment I had with fellow Victory riders.

Well, it finally happened. Had just finished filling up my Pearl White Cross Country Tour at one of the local petroleum establishments, when I hear the following .... "hello OFFICER, can you direct me to the downtown area?" I nearly fell over when the elderly gentleman's wife came running over with a flyer from one of the local jewelry stores which was on Mt. Rushmore Road. Gave her the directions to the store and received a great big "thank you OFFICER. That was the first time I've been mistaken for a police officer since getting the bike, but it looks as if it won't be the last. Got home and told the wife what transpired. We both smiled since I've been kidded about looking like a cop with my white shorty helmet from friends and family since I bought the bike.

P.S. - I'm turning 71 next month, so when I say elderly, they really were.

Was there a note in it requesting you fill it up and return it so they too can ride a Victory? Happy Birthday, son.
