Get their attention by asking them how they felt when they bought thier 1st used or new car, all the questions they had and then just compare it to your experience.

  • Find a motorcycle joke that you can relate to the experience then transition out of it.
  • Did anything curious happen to you when you were shopping for or buying your bike?
  • Feel free to make a narrative (a little story) up. It absolutely doesn't have to be true. Feel free to lie your off to get their attention. Humor is the best angle.
  • Bring up some motorcycle myths that they may be familiar with, debunk them then transition out of it.

Sorry, I know those are only general suggestions, but I'm on spring break.

I like Cory's idea about the helmet...also like the idea about starting off with a joke...if you make them smile in the beginning then you'll have their attention to the end.

or tell them you were tired of riding two up with No Fear lol

How 'bout using the sound of a bike revving? Maybe bounceing off the rev limiter?


Maybe use the real thing, right there in class.


Maybe just scream SHUT UP!!!!!

Just a few ideas... Don't blame me I'm only a Bumblebee.
