Why does everyone ask "What's the fastest you've been?"

Whats your most common question?

171mph on my old Fireblade on the open road. :f4:

The question I get asked most is:
"How come you arent dead yet"

"Have you fallen off yet?"

followed by

"I thought you would be dead by now"

What are they trying to say?

What is 'that'? MV Agusta motorcycle. Ok, but who makes 'it'?
Do you like 'it'? Really now wtf. No, its a stupid thing to have.
Who much does 'it' cost? Um, how much do you get paid?
Where did you buy 'it'? WalMart but they are on sale at the Home Depot.

It gets old real fast.

The other one: Do you like it? --drives me nuts, especially from a fellow biker.

Believe it or not I have gotten all the questions asked above. There is only 1 person I have met in my life...well make that 2 and they are both European and jsut about some of the coolest people I know who have heard about MV Agustas.

I also got asked this gem once "Is that a HA-BA-YU-SA"?

I've been asked all of those, but there's another one I get with some frequency: "That's beautiful. How can you ride it? If I had one, it'd be in my living room." My short answer to that is "I bought it to ride it. It's a *motorcycle*." The follow up to that is "What if something happens to it?" Answer: "Like my first one, totaled by a guy that ran a red light? That's what insurance is for."

I don't mind the "What did it cost?" question too much, because anyone can look up the retail price. I don't put that in the same realm as "How much do you get paid?" I usually say something like "about twice as much as a Suzuki." At that point, I occasionally need to point out just how truly ugly a Hayabusa is.

1. How fast does it go?
2. What's the fastest you've been?
3. What is it? It's an MV Agusta. Yeah, but what is it? It's an MV Agusta. What's that? It's a handmade Italian bike. Yeah, but who makes it? :banghead:

1. How old is it? (it's a classic so they ALWAYS start with that one)
2. Is it a Guzzi? Answer: Eh no, it's an MV Agusta....followed by: And what's that?
3. Did you restore it yourself? Answer: Of course I did! (yeah right... ;) )

The coolest one I got was from a guy asking: "didn't I see you yesterday in that town around ... o'clock?"
He was right, I was indeed there and it was 40 miles away, you get noticed on an MV and people remember.
As long as they're not coppers I suppose that's a good thing :D
