Running errands this morning and saw a truck with a rm250 in the back.
I realized anytime I see somebody hauling a bike somewhere I get mildly excited. I look to see what kind of bike it is. New? Old? YZ? KTM? 2T OR 4? Then I wonder where they might be going. Trails? Hangtown? Hollister? I get a bit jealous and start making plans in my head to take my own bike out.

Just a little off season observation I made today. Does anybody else feel the same way when they see someone hauling a bike?

Yeah. I always point and say to my wife " I bet those guys are cool". For some reason she never agrees.

My wife likes to mock me, "I wonder where those guys are going? Is there a race today nearby?"

It's funny when shit like this is asked and i quickly realize that (for the most part) all moto guys are wired the same! Just like the wheelie thread while back...

Curios though - does anyone look at mountain ranges or hills off in the distance and make rhythm sections in your head? blink

Seriously...I get pissed and jealous. Those lucky bastards are going riding while here I am on my way to the kids soccer game or another trip to visit my wife’s grandparents or just another trip to Lowe’s to fix a sprinkler the dogs broke.

I'm always jealous when I see them when I'm on the way to work on Monday or midweek.

I do get excited and wonder where they are going and get a bit jealous that I am not going with them.
I always look at mountain ranges and see doubles, triples etc. I even point them out to my wife and she humors me and says"someone needs to go riding"

I look and think those better not be my bikes. Then if they aren't i check if its someone I know.

11/2/2018 4:17 PM

Guilty. If they are in front of me on the highway I always seem to catch up with them for a closer look. Ha!

There can't be one person on this earth that rides and doesn't get excited when they see bikes in a trucklaughing

That’s me. I’m jealous as hell seeing someone else getting to have fun while I have to do other shit. And 90% of the time, the other shit I’m doing is, for the most part, something that could be handled without my presence. I really just couldn’t wait last weekend to go to her cousins place last weekend to celebrate a birthday party for a kid who’s name I cannot remember to save my ass.....

Every fu$ki*g time smile

|

11/2/2018 4:55 PM

Ha ha, yep! My wife always gives me a hard time when I accidently swerve trying to get a better look at what bike it is!

|

11/2/2018 5:02 PM

Along the same lines, but whenever I am flying I scan the ground for motocross tracks during the approach into the airport....

|

11/2/2018 5:06 PM

Yes! Also figuring out if they’re going trail riding or to the MX track based on how the bikes look or the numbers. laughing

11/2/2018 5:19 PM

Always gets me pumped!

Hell yes. Every time. Gotta match their speed to see the bikes and if there are any identifying stickers on the cab.

|

11/2/2018 6:20 PM

“Slow down you’re going 90mph”,me : “but how can I see what bike it is?”

|

11/2/2018 6:30 PM

Or even just number plate stickers on the back window

|

11/2/2018 6:43 PM

I'm guilty, I've went as far as pulling up beside them and starting a conversation, and made a few friends by doing that.

|

There's something happening here, what it is ain't exactly clear.

11/2/2018 7:48 PM

No, but I do get excited when a hot looking chick flashes me.

|

11/2/2018 8:14 PM

I feel the same way now about it as I did when I was a wee lad. Still kool.
