Default Old Biker

So I was pumpin some petrol in the ol girl yesterday when a white haired dood walks up and asks me if I'm an "old biker." Not sure what he was getting at I asked "whaddya mean by that?" While I ain't going to make the NFL cut anytime soon, it ain't like I'm Methusala and aside from a leather jacket, I really had no other tell tale "biker" regalia on.

So he restated, "have you been riding motorcycles a long time?" Well yeah, I'll cop to that. He then asked what I liked about my Vic. I explained that it made good power, was smooth, had a great suspension and cornering clearance, was as comfortable as an old shoe, is as reliable as an anvil and so on.

He seemed a little perplexed. I think he might have been expecting "If ya have to ask..."

I told him that if he liked to ride he should check them out. He stated he had his fun, but that was back in the day on dirt bikes. He then complimented me on how purdy the bike is and I thanked him as if I should take credit for some cat in Spirt Lake's design.

Last time someone complimented the ride it was a rather large ethnic woman who asked me if I'd take her for a ride. When do the 20 year old blondes fall over themselves for me like in the commercials? Where'd I put that damn hair dye?!

I think you should take at least some credit, because you gave the most important approval your bike ever received. You gave it the single most important nod when you bought it, covering all production costs, including design.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

I have a t-shirt that says "Old Guys can still go fast if they want to." While picking up young beautiful women is cool, what is almost as satisfying is coming to the end of a ride or pulling into a gas station & have a young guy you just schooled drop his jaw on the ground when he sees how old you are when you take your helmet off. Had the same effect when I was a hockey goalie (60 yrs old now & only stopped playing 4 yrs ago when I had a hip replaced) & the young guys would see how old I was after the game.....look is priceless..........

I get funny looks too, but it's mainly because you don't see too many computer nerds wearing full black bike gear riding a fairly obnoxious V-Twin sport.
