Smiling ear to ear

  1. Just had one of my most fun rides and I only had to ride to the dentist 15 minutes away. From richmond to Elsternwick.

    It all started when I got petrol. An elderly gentleman (about 70ish) yells out to me whilst pointing to my bike "That's the only way to go isnt' it!" I nod and reply "sure is!" He then gives me a big smile then frown. He points at his wife sitting in the car and says "I'd still be riding except *SHE* made me stop!" Not in much anger but the half I love you wife but you suck for doing this type of emotion. hehhe

    He came over once he filled up after I paid for my petrol. So cheap to fill up isnt it and the dumbest thing ever was letting her make my licence run out. He gave me a heart filled pat on the back and says "Keep enjoying it son!! You lucky son of a biatch"

    After that I was grinning on the outside and inside big time. Then every pedestrian and car moved (that was in the way) to let me lane filter along glen huntly road until I got to the dentist.

    Ju st got back from the dentist and I'm still grinning from those incidents. ROCKIN! :grin: :grin: :grin:
  2. Good aint it. :grin: :grin:
  3. They should hand that bloke out with every dentist's appointment.
  4. That's a great story.
    And its probably the only time your dentist has ever seen a smiling patient too, so your dentist got something out of it too.
  5. awww you didnt offer the old guy a quirt on your bike....

  6. That would have put you in the right frame of mind just before a dentist's appointment.

    Which reminds me, I think it is about that time again that I made a visit :cry:
  7. I thought it was dangerous to ride after sucking on the laughing gas?
  8. that what everyone should do / be like
    i recon if ur doing your Ls on the car u should do .... a riding course as well...
    then everyone will be smiling :LOL:
  9. Yeah it is but I didn't have any(or any other anaesthetic). A temp tooth cover and a mould for the crown I am getting in ~2 weeks.
  10. a guy said something like that to me at the servo last week he was shocked at what it cost to fill up and i commented said if it never rained id ride it everyday & everywhere he gave a heart warming grin. the nice people are always at servos
  11. funny how little things can really make your day eh.
