Not that uncommon here, but most have a T-shirt and sneakers. Oh, and a "novelty" helmet.

I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!

It may be a myth that as a person ages they grow up. Us older guys are always doing something stupid to remind us of our youth. Why just the other day I.......uh?

Riding a motorcycle shirtless at that age scares the kids. Flip flops? That explains why those odd colored skid marks turn to a crimson red. Today I saw a middle aged woman on the back of a bike with no shoes.

Saw a similar scene the other day here. Except the older guy was wearing a tank top & tennis shoes, and was on a Honda scooter.
Got a good laugh outta that myself

Fat One On a Yamaha

It ain't just Harleys that have fat old geezers floppin around.

I seen a huge fat monster on a brand new black Yamaha 650 a coupla years ago.
Nothin too exceptional about fat old geezers--I'm one myself.
But I don't show no lard to the ladies on my black bike,

And I don't turn the bike over in the middle of the intersection in the high-pricey residentials of Irvine, Calif.

This dude was just a big gob of white lard pushin his black Yamaha home--after we got him picked up outa the intersection.

He was just puttin around, showin off his new Yamaha when he flopped over in the middle of the residential intersection--right next to a big park. A lot of folks was in the park having a big laugh at a guy who weighed in at about 300 but didn't have nuthin on but a pair of swimming trunks. And he didn't have no suntan neither!
Nuthin on but a black Yamaha and swimming trunks!

The image is stuck there in my mind permanently!


Fortunately, there wasn't any red liquid on the pavement--just some green-colored stuff where he crunched his cooling system.

It coulda been worse. He could of had on black patten shoes and black socks!
I had a talk with my dad a few years ago about the blue shorts, the t-shirt and black patten shoes and black socks. He's in his 80's and ever since Mom passed away, his sense of "style" has gone down hill.
