Started an arguement

So I recently was brought up to my division headquarters to be in charge of our motorcycle mentorship program. Part of this program is for me to show up at the MSF classes taught on post and watch training and introduce myself. Today was the military sport rider course.

I pull up on the 51

They were on a break and 4 guys start arguing about what kind of bike it is. 2 said it was the new Suzuki Motogp bike (WTF!) one said it was a ducati and the 4th said it was a new BMW. I just let them go at it and then Vance the MSF instructor came over, listened to them for a second and said "its a 12 year old 1000cc vtwin, called a Honda rc51. One of the most fun bikes I've owned, next to my hypermotard."

Wow

Bwahahaha. When you tell somebody someting, it all depends on where you're standing as to how dumb it sounds.

Duct tape can't fix stupid...but it sure helps muffle the sound

You would think that the HRC decal might give them a push in the right direction ...

Your eBay bodywork would confuse me if I saw it from the side.

But the responses were funny!
