Default Re: Interactions while riding

I was on a recent road trip, coming home from Illinois with the Norton bike on the rack on the back of my pickup. I had stopped for fuel and a restroom break. When I came out there were two guys with their ladies on real Norton Commandos looking at my bike.
They thought it was a classic/vintage Norton motorbike. They said they didn't know Norton made them.

At first I kidded them into believing it was called a 'Norton Cadet', then told them the truth and explained it was just a motorized bicycle. They enjoyed it. Me too.

Actually this has happened a lot. People see the tank decals and think the bike is a real British classic.
