No so much a stupid thing but a compliment. I went on a 275 ride today for lunch with a friend on his Heritage Softail. We stopped at a Shell station in Binger, OK (home of Johnny Bench- pop around 700). I see some guy talking to my friend and I overheard the guy say, "Oh...but what can you tell me about the gray one?" Friend: "Tom, this guy wants to know about your bike". The guy wanted to know all about the Triumph but had no interest in the Harley

went out on a break yesterday and watched a guy circle my bike 3 or 4 times, checking it out from all angles. arms crossed, giving it the good consideration.

Same. Police haven't said anything either.

I like the thousand yard stare on peoples face when I answer them what it is. It's like you can see the wheels turning, but the only thing that ever comes out is "So, is it like a gixxer?"

I've had this same one a lot when people at work see me coming in with my gear. I have gotten to the point that it is tiring even explaining it so I just say, yeah, its a motorcycle too.
