You've all gone through it. Whether it be when you first started riding or the first time somebody found out that you ride a bike. They'd either have a shocked or blank expression on their face, shortly thereafter they'd lecture you on the dangers or riding, whether of not they've had prior riding experience. Lets share. I'll go first.
1. Me: "(jokingly) So mom, you're gunna put the down payment on my bike right???"
Mom: "What!? Are you crazy!? I'm not going to contribute to the death of my son!"
2. Friend: "Riding is dangerous...you can like...like...die!"
3. Girlfriend's dad: "Oh that's dangerous man. I know this fireman who got decapitated while riding his hog."
4. Lady at the DMV: "I'm here for a motorcycle permit."
DMV Proctor: "Why??? They're dangerous."
Okay, you're turn.
