Hope you don't kill yourself on that thing!

Anybody else have someone say that to you as you pull up on your Busa? I have gotten that twice now and I need something witty to say in return. Last one was a customer. Pulled up to give him a bid and he was standing outside. "Hope you don't kill yourself on that thing!" was the first thing he had to say to me. I thought, OK, this guy knows nothing about bikes. We went in his house and he was obviously a Harley guy judging by all the collectables and crap he had.

That is what I did too. Didn't even acknowledge the statement. So you've heard that one too Robert?

My response is always simple....Dont kill me then in your car! Most bike accidents are caused by people not watching out for us bikers.

Yeah, now we are talking. Some good responses so far guys. Glad I am not the only one that had heard this. What a stupid thing to say to someone.

I cut it off at the pass, whenever someone says that to me, I point to my license plate and say "see? the plate says 'slow1.' The bike is pretty fast though!"

Get's em every time. :laugh:

Got it again yesterday. Ran to a supplier for a small item I needed that I could carry on the bike. Guy says to me as I am pulling out "Careful on that thing, don't kill yourself" as I was pulling away. I just twisted the throttle and kept going. I guess I am not going to get around. Apparently people love the looks of the Busa but also think that it I a death trap.
