Proselytizing

I had a customer come into the store looking for a part--I really can't remember what now--when I noticed he rode in on his R6. It was about half past two in the afternoon, so I asked him how he got so lucky to be able to ride on such a nice, sunny afternoon. He said he was on L&I and had been for about three years now. Envy and jealousy set in almost immediately as I thought about all the free time to go riding. (I've been down the L&I road before, and I don't envy the fight to get paid from them... much like pulling teeth.) I asked if he had ever heard of PNWRider.com or was a member of the forum.

He replied, "Naw, I'm a biker gang of one. I don't have time for that kind of thing." I honestly was hurt and dejected. But it soon passed because I sarcastically remarked, "Oh, like an army of one." Whatever the hell that's suppose to mean?!? :tard:

Anyway, this won't stop me from inviting others to join the forum. I find the camaraderie and discussions here fun and you just can't beat the group rides. I've never been part of something where you can put up a post that says, "I'm bored. Meet me at Denny's in 30 minutes and we'll go carve up the roads for a couple hours," and have so many responses from people willing to do it just for the love of the sport. That's just damned awesome in my book.
