I Ride: 2013 Hypermotard in Fast White
Just this weekend, quickly dropped into the hardware store during a ride. When I came out, guy in an old pickup (very cool GMC Apache I think) was parked next to my bike (white Hyperstrada). My leathers are mainly white with black and red trim, my helmet has the same color scheme almost. As I'm suiting up he points to the helmet and bike etc and says "wow everything matches", my instant response "Yes, I'm actually a Power Ranger", he pissed himself laughing and drove off.

I walked into my sons schoolyard with full leather-gear (mostly black), and some of the kids stopped me and asked me why the Police is coming to chool today. Sweet..

I'm not sure if it qualifies as the dumbest thing, but definitely the most surprising: I was stuck in wicked traffic this spring and happened to be beside a Harley guy - really nice chap. Of course we started chatting over the din of our bikes - at least until he had to turn his off - and at one point he said, "so, a Ducati eh?" (and yes, he did say "eh"...) "I hear those are pretty dear; what did that cost, around 50 thousand or so?" I nearly fell off!! Of course, I said "yep!" ;-)

Always get the "How much", and "how fast" questions. But how about the coolest thing anyone ever said about the bike or gear?..... Labor Day weekend I ditched the dangerous group that I rode with to Eureka Springs, Arkansas and did the solo thing the rest of the weekend. It was hot- about 90. I walked into Pizza Hut and sat down at a table for dinner. Helmet and gloves on the table, jacket hanging off another chair... I feel a tap on my shoulder and a guy in a Honda T-shirt and his wife are standing there. He asks if that's my Ducati outside the front door and then told me "it's a beautiful bike that would get him in too much trouble if he owned it". He then congratulated me for "wearing all the equipment all the time" - kind of cool that at least somebody actually gets it!

"Man, that back tire is worn right from edge to edge... guess it's time to start think about swapping it out." Simultaneously one of the dumbest and coolest things anyone has said about my bike. Gotta love cagers!!!

I too, get comments about wearing full leathers, boots, and gloves every time I ride. Most of the guys at work have taken to calling me "Robo-Cop" as I come walking in... Not that I'm complaining

"What is that bike $22,000?"
"Is that a scooter with fairings missing?"
"Shiiittt that's a nice dirt bike, what is it a 450?"
"Where's the speakers?" (I have speakers on my bike)
"Holy shit you take your ducati off road?!" (In front of a bunch of women.. Probably the funniest so far.. There was mud slung all over it)

A beautiful woman said that it was a really sexy bike. Oh wait - that wasn't dumb - except I only managed to stutter th-th-thanks. That was dumb.
