The People You Meet

Broken down at the side of the road, a chappie comes over with the usual, "are you ok".  As it happened, we had decided what the problem was, so no further help was needed.

Chappies chats away, about the things he's done in the past (all bike related).  He was a mechanic, he can get spares if we needed them, he even used to test bikes for MCN in the past.  "So you knew Kevin Ash?" I asked.  He went very quiet.  "Umm.  The name rings a bell - not sure"  Yeah. Right. 
Twat. :shock:

I think we are living their dream/s as they no longer have a bike or always wanted one but never did, thats why the want to associate.I find most are friendly, harmless and well meaning, i just take a deep breath and nod an awful alot :biggrin:

We chatted for quite a while, and we passed on our number.

He has a bike that needs to be put onto spanish plates, so we gave him a good contact to do that too.

We certainly weren't rude, but I'm old enough not to be taken in by anybody these days.:wink:

Sometimes it doesn't help much to listen/ chat either.  Went with the misses to a particularly nice coastal spot to see the Sun set with her.

Before I had the sidestand down, this bloke come bounding over, "Oh - Suzuki is it?  One of the new ones?  I've been thinking of gettin' one of em' ..." and so on for the next 15 minutes.  (It had "Suzuki" written on the side and the numberplate/ condition showed the bike's age - my grannie could have matched his insight.)

He would not take a hint, and would not fuck off.  Kept asking all sorts of damned-fool questions, making it patently obvious his only connection with bikes was on the back of his girlfriend's scooter 25 years ago.

This is all very well and good, but my misses was standing there for the whole time - and not part of this fascinating conversation.   By the time he eventually hopped it,  we'd missed the sunset we'd planned to see.
