    Yesterday I was coming home from a 30 mile mountain bike ride and I was a little light headed but I am sure I saw what I saw. As I entered my neighborhood, I heard a leaf blower and looked over to see a guy blowing his Harley with, yup, a leaf blower. WTF? Drying it off? I didn't see water around it as if he had washed it. Maybe it was to dry off the oil leaks.
    So, what WEIRD things have YOU seen done to motorcycles?

    Not weird but stupid, my neighbors use a pressure washer to wash their motorcycle.

    I use one on mine as well. Does this make me stupid also? Using a pressure washer on a bike is fine if you know where not to spray directly.

    Other than weird add-ons like the tasslels, mostly I see people cleaning their bikes ALL the time.

    They have a garage? Do that on a rainy day! WTH?

    I saw a motorcycle for sale on the Denver Craigslist called the "Yeti" - it was completely covered in fur and looked like a Bantha from Tatooine (minus the horns). I'm sure that the listing was a hoax but the bike in the pic was definitely real - WTF!!

    Weird as in what they Do, I use an air compressor to back flush the bugs out of the radiator, have use a pressure washer, but that made to much a mess. or? I was fitness to something no one should see, at the least a 300+ pound women riding a scooter on the beach. for the life of me couldn't figure how that person was moving till I saw two tiny wheels underneath, talk about where's the camera moment.

    Oh man reminds me of 2 things.
    Went to sturgis saw a guy who's rolls looked more like saddle bags, no idea there was a bike minus the red light glowing out his rear.
    Also not quite as bad but a girl at least 400 pounds on the new cbr 125....no idea how she reached 60.


    Odd things, adding crome..never understood tassles eather.
    I also don't understand the trike thing unless your a war vet who lost both your legs and even then i'm not sure(took my course with a guy who had 1 leg, it was his left as well, his shifts where rough but he did it.)

    I damaged a car radiator as kid spraying with a preasure washer, so it's does not go near my bike just incase.
