I figure this'll get under a few people's skin, but it's bothered me for years and I'm hoping someone can settle me down..
As many of you know, I work on paper making machines (hence, the user name).. With this, comes almost weekly travel to some part of the country. This is where the issue comes in..
Why in the world don't Southern riders "RIDE"? I've been in Baton Rouge all week.. 70 degrees during the day, and I haven't seen a half dozen bikes.
The paper mill I'm working at has several hundred cars in the parking lot, and 3-4 motorcycles in the bike parking area.
IT'S FRICKEN BEAUTIFUL OUT, yet nobody's riding??
At home, I've taken to snowmobiling in the winter to keep the mind settled due to lack of motorcycling.. A foot of snow is better for the sled than the bike, anyway. But, when I come down South (flying, and working 2-3 days) it drives me batty to see nobody on motorcycles when the weather's perfect for riding..
This isn't just this week.. I've been doing this job for 20 years and it's always been something I've noticed..
At home, if it's 70 degrees out, you can't swing a dead cat by the tail without hitting someone on a motorcycle.. Are only Yankees true riders???
