Is my self image a little skewed?

Post  #Tag on Sun 06 Jul 2014, 11:26 pm

Following some cheery banter in another thread I got to thinking.

I always thought I looked like this when riding -




But my friends tell me I really look like this -



Has anyone else had a similar experience

Ooh, I am in trouble.  It's one of Kawasaki's v-single homologation bikes from the nineties.

As long as you keep riding long enough to look more like this .............






( Kinda puts a whole new slant on riding naked though  Laughing  )

I don't care what you or anyone else looks like, or think they look like. I also don't care what anyone thinks I look like. Cause when I'm alone in my helmet my mind is only on one thing. That is the utter Utopia of the riding experience. Something that non riders just can't understand.


Gee.  Wasn't that nice. I don't think I could have upset anyone there.   Laughing

And well said, Hammy.
The only reason for the thread was I thought it might be a fun topic to run with.

Jimcoleman is on the Gixxer. I had my tongue out because I'd just swallowed a bug the size of a small dog. I really should stop riding the Northwest 200 without a visor fitted.
