Is that Japanese?

No, it's made in England.

Oh, did you have to swap out the right and left bits so you could ride here in the States?

I was unloading my street triple from my trailer after a track day. The plate was off, mirrors removed and lights taped. My neighbor said he liked my dirt bike.
I just let him think he was right, rather than burst his bubble.

So today, I decided I was going to stop sitting on the bike in the garage and making "Vroom Vroom" noises, and go for a ride. (35 degrees didn't seem that bad)

I decide while I'm out that I'll get the parts to do that helmet lock mod, but first I stop at GameStop.

I'm in there talking to one of sales people and a guy walks in.

Guy: Who's bike is that outside?
Me: It's mine. You like it?
Guy: Yeah, it's a Honda right?
Me: Nah, it's a Triumph. Daytona 675, to be exact.
Guy: Oh, ok. How many cc's? Like 500 or something?
Me: Uh, 675.
Guy: Oh, that's cool. I ride too. It's too cold for me though..
Me: So, what do you ride?
Guy: I got a ZX6R. Lowered and stretched 3in. Blue LEDs. Custom white paint. And a whole lotta chrome.
Me: Oh, thats cool...

After that, I had nothing more to say. He then pays for his stuff and leaves. No more than 2 seconds after the door closes, me and the sales guy start laughing hysterically! At least it wasn't a Gixxer, right?

There are 500+ cc scooters that are just fine on freeway and much smaller motorcycles that are not. Drawing lines in sand and choosing sides just seems silly.
