Update to "the Downside to having a bike"

Did my 2nd followup interview. I went an learned how to tie a tie, bought nice dress pants and nice shirt etc. Went like clockwork.....

THANK FOR WRINKLE resistant clothes. I experimented. I just rode 45 mins in 95 degree weather and wore jacket and overpants over the clothes. Just removed all gear and I look freshly pressed, excepting a slight wrinkle or 2 in sleeve which isn't noticeable.....

I chained helmet and jacket to bike, then carried 2 bags in, left backpack with receptionist with the pants and boots (no valuable items) and carried tailbag, since it looks almost like a large portfolio.


Think I got the job and it went very smoothly.

One funny though, they started claiming I'd madke so much money I'd be driving a Beemer. I told them I ride, so I don't really want a beemer, and they laughed and one guy said to get one of those "biscottis".... he MEANT ducati's!

Lol. Ducatis are known as baked Items apparently!
