Do you accidentally recruit?

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' started by BitSar, Jan 16, 2013.

  1. I think I do......

    Just today I was getting back into the Moto gear in the change rooms at the Office - ready for my motorcycle therapy on the way home.....

    I work in a large office with > 300 employees so "newbies" are common.

    This bloke looks at my boots and says "You ride a motorbike eh?"

    The resultant conversation went along the lines of:
    • He is looking to get his L's
    • Looking at different types of LAMS bikes and wanted some info
    Before I knew it I had directed him to NR - directed him to the Saturday morning practice sessions etc.

    Then I got thinking - this exact scenario has happened to me before.......the result was the same......accidental NR+Moto "recruitment"

    Hell - more two wheeled enthusiasts is a good thing in my book - I'll continue to encourage anyone to try riding for the right reasons.........

    Just a thought........

    trd2000 - coming to a street corner near you.......L platers, be afraid.
  16. Do you ever catch em? :)
  17. been known to happen.... it gets more complicated when they pull into a police station
  18. I do encourage people to come here and have a look. I do warn some that it can be quite beige, and if you want to start an argument simply post up an article by Boris or tell everyone you don't wear ATGATT.

    But I also suggest people go and have a look at 2WF and netrider. If they own a Bandit I suggest they visit Suzuki Bandits Australia or BanditAlley.

    Why restrict yourself to one forum? You get a much broader view of things by 'talking' to different people.

  19. I agree b12mick - there are many other places to get great info.

    I guess one of the reasons of the OP was I caught myself mentioning NR to a potential rider without consciously knowing about it.......
