Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

My motorbike got some unexpected attention at the auto shop today.
The service guy asked me if I could leave my car for service.
I told him that I had my motorbike on the back on a bike rack and could ride it home.
The service guy peered out the glass doors and decided to step outside
for a closer look. He likes to bicycle to work on occasion and said it gets
very sweaty in the summer. I told him about our site, some of the laws and restrictions in TX and some sources for bike motor kits.
After finishing the paperwork inside, I went back outside to unrack the motorbike and ride home. As I began to swing a leg over, the service guy again stepped outside and said “I want to hear it run”. I pedaled across the parking lot, released the clutch and motored away.
On the 7 mile motorbike ride home, a guy in a new Camaro clapped his hands as I went by. I’ll take it as a complement, whatever his intention.
