Does your ride call to you...

Anybody else ever do this...you're sitting at work, or at home...usually happens at work because I can't just get up and go at will...but you look out and see your bike sitting there in the parking lot, and it looks almost sade, like it's just calling you,saying "hey, lets go for a ride" or "why are you leaving me out here with all these inferior 4-wheelers: :bike:

Do you go out on a break, and just stand beside your bike, or start her up, just get through the rest of your day? Do you always park your bike as close to the restaurant front doors as possible, just so you can keep an eye on it?

Im sure there are tons more of things that we do, but just thought I'd get this started and see what you all think. Now be honest, I KNOW Im not the only one that does some of these and other similar things too...




I won't tell, but you just got passed by a Kat !!!

O you know your right on that one. You are not alone Matt. I do take breaks and go out just to see her sitting there and I may rub on her from time to time to show her that I do care and miss her as much as she does me. Hehehe listen to me, I sound like a little bitch. :smilelol: Anyways, Yes I get the same feelings at work or at home. Mostly after I go for a short ride and park. Its almost as she is saying "please ride me more". LOL I think we all get this feeling from time to time. I would ride all year round if the weather was nice.

Heck it happend to me today. It was getting rained on and it looked so sad I had to sneak out of work early just so I could ride in the rain. But it was worth it, Plus you can do some kickass powerslides in the rain.

Oh yeah. . When the weather's nice I go for hour rides at lunch, go home and grab my bike at lunch, whatever. I haven't been able to ride for a month, though.

Always park it where I can see it.

If I go out to luch from work I wil lalways walk past it, make sure it's okay.

I stare at it like it's not even my bike, more like I'm chekcing out someone elses.

Insane

I've caught Matt outside, just staring at his bike, on more than one occasion :banana:

Do any of you have names for your bike?

He named his Draco, since he's going for a dragon theme on it.
