Surprising conversation
« on: July 16, 2017, 07:43:32 AM »
This past week I had to do some traveling for work. I was flying home on Friday and started having a conversation with my seatmate on the plane. I found out she and her boyfriend (seated in the row behind us) were traveling to visit her dad in AZ. She mentioned she was picking up a motorcycle from her dad and bringing back home to OH.

I mentioned I was a rider too, and she asked if I wanted to see a picture of the bike. Given her age, demeanor, speech, etc., I prepared to be politely complimentary of a big, shiny cruiser. Instead, she pulled up a photo of a strikingly blue Triumph Daytona 955i. She then said her boyfriend had just purchased a Ducati 1098. Turns out they and her family are all avid sport bike riders.

I of course reciprocated with photos of my new bike, and we spent most of the 50-minute flight swapping bike stories.

It just goes to show you can't always trust those first impressions.
Get on your bikes and ride!

Riders show off bike pics like they are our children.  Bet that made the flight more enjoyable.
