Two days ago I watched some youtube clips about the Yamaha FZ6-N. Not sure what made me do that, but I thought it's a pretty bike and could be my next one when I'm off my restrictions (that is if there is going to be a next one ). Directly after that I left my office and went to the fish and chips shop to get some dinner. While waiting in the line I saw this beautiful shiny black FZ6-N standing just right there. What a coincidence! Couldn't stop staring at it, in RL it looks even more pretty! So after I ordered I had to wait for my food being cooked and walked around the bike in a little circle, admiring it from every angle. Wondering whether I'd be lucky and the owner would come back in time for me to talk to him about it. He might tell me some pros and cons about the bike, maybe even let me have a sit on her? My food would take a couple more minutes, I was waiting outside the shop, leaning against the wall and looking at the bike. And then he DID come. With a bag full of groceries that he stuffed into his backpack while I was still staring at his bike. Now I had the opportunity to actually talk to someone who rides the bike I just saw 5 minutes ago on youtube. To ask him whether I can touch it. Whether I can sit on it. But then I looked down at myself: just an ordinary girl, wearing jeans and my superman cons, my hair the usual mess. How weird is that, just walking to this biker and asking him about his ride? He probably wouldn't believe me and think I was trying to be cool, wanting to sit on a bike. Or that I'd think he is so cool and I just want to hit on him. (Hey, who doesn't want to have a biker as a boyfriend?) So yeah... I didn't dare to do anything. Just stood there and stared at his bike. Until he sorted out his gear and took off. He must've thought I'm a freak or something. Must be a strange feeling to have someone standing just a couple of meters away from you, leaning against a fish and chips store, not taking their eyes off your beloved bike. How often did it happen to you, that somebody just walked up to you and wanted to talk about your bike? What did you think of them? Did you ever let them sit on it? I guess when you ride a really fancy bike that will happen more often. Is your reaction different when the person who approaches you is obviously a biker (wearing gear, holding a helmet) rather than looks like he doesn't know anything about bikes?
