I remember the first day when my bike came home.. it was a hot saturday afternoon and i just took it for a short spin before i came home and showed it to my folks..
When i reached home, there are these labourers who work at construction sites who bring their kids along since they have no permanent place to live. Those kids were out playing and they saw me enter the lane to my home and they said
"Look thats a racing Bike... Woahhh look at that thing.. "
And then i just smiled and revved it up a bit in neutral and they screamed like crazy and eventually were a bit scared since the bike was facing them from a few feet away.. Theyre still around here at the construction site. Everytime i come home they come running after me all throughout the lane
This girl ive been having a crush on, i asked her if i could drop her home from university since we both live in the same city. She was too shy and she said "Maybe next time". I insisted but she didnt budge and i left. NExt day a mutual friend of ours who was standing next to her that day at the bus stop told me that she said "That's a macho lookin bike"
Atleast she likes my ride
And i always get the stares everytime i leave the university since all these people(students) gather at a common bus stop outside and 250's are the only big bikes in the campus.. with the exception of a Harley now which is a rare sight.
