took my dad's harley to work to do a state inspection. after i parked it next to my tool box for the day. came back from lunch and one of the new guys about 19 yrs old was sitting on it eating his lunch. first thought was to punch his sandwich into the back of his head. instead i walked over and politly told him it would be best for his health to got off the bike now. the look on his face was priceless . he didnt come near me for the rest of the day.

If it was one of my motards, I'd probably say "Wanna ride it?" More to draw over to the dark side.

My Bimota? Probably would politely ask that they get off, then check for any scratches or damage. If there were any scratches, I'd ask them if they have insurance to cover it. If not, then I'd explain they better have good medical insurance.

2008 Hayabusa -- STOLEN -- frame recovered






Honestly, I feel like that many motorcyclists (myself included) are always "at war" with everybody about our motorcycles. High death rate, bad automobile drivers and people touching our bikes, etc. I have learned that most people who touch are simply curious about our motorcycles and whatnot. Sure there are a ton of them out there nowadays but it is still foreign to them.

I have begun talking to more and more people about my motorcycling experiences and hope theyunderstand us better. We've already got a bad rap out there and that represents me less and less the older I get. Share the knowledge and you might find a new addition to the motorcycle community. The first thing I try to always discuss is gear and the importance of it. I generally do not let people sit on my bikes no matter what. I politely explain that I wouldnt want it drop and hurt them. That usually works well.

Now... brushing your teeth or eating lunch is something else though... that's not ignorance, that's just down right disrespectful.

It's simple, just jump on the back and whisper into their ear.

Quite a few years ago I had a second job as manager at a Dominos, so I rode my 955i to work. During a busy time when I was in the kitchen and couldn't leave, I had an associate tell me that there was a couple putting their son on my bike and taking pictures. I thought he was joking but when the rush was over he told me he was serious. When I got out to my bike there little handprints all over my tank. What makes people think they have the right to do that? Reaction depends on my mood, but I do not like it.

I've only had a guy sit on my bike once, I walked up on him and told him "hey get the off my bike." He just got off and apologized. I don't think id make a big deal out of it if he doesn't.

If he didn't immediately jump off and apologize, I'd make a HUGE deal of it...the kind of deal that would involve his dentist getting some work...

Then he would know better than to sit on someone else's bike.

I don't think I have anything to worry about with my current bikes. As soon as somebody would sit on it they'd get right off and probably think that's the worst seat they've ever sat on. me my back hurts this morning.

I never caught anybody sitting on any of my Harleys, but I know it happened. Come back to find the bars pointing the wrong way, like that.

I dunno, I'm known to have a temper and in general I'm a real , but for some reason it doesn't me off so much as just annoy me. I guess I figure if Walter Mitty is so desperate for excitement he's sitting on random motorcycles, his life sucks enough already. Though the tooth brushing story is over the top. I'd go from 0 to before he could blink.

Not if he was drunk or thought the bike was owned by a LEO
