ask stupid questions?

All day long I was getting asked if I am riding a bike? I walk into a business wearing all my moto apparel and they ask,"Are you riding a motorcycle? WTF. I finally stopped biting my tongue and began replying that I was mandated by the workers comp board to wear a helmet while driving due to the excessive number of accidents I have had. One woman replied, "I think I have seen you on the road." :laughing

Probably just want to start a conversation with you.

I saw a Fx officer with boots on in Target when I was in my gear, and I think I asked if he was on his bike--didn't see one in the parking lot and no helmet or heavy jacket. Maybe I commented on how nice an evening it was to ride . . . I can't remember. He was nice, though, maybe humoring me. :D

Maybe I'm just another dumbass . . . .

Yep,
Even us civilians get that crap. I am standing in line at Food Lion last weekend. 3/4 length riding jacket, leather riding pants, riding boots holding my helmet in one hand and the cashier asks me "Are you riding a bike or something?"
Rarely am I speechless..........this was one of those times.
Even the lady behind me was looking at this girl like "WTF".

Should have told her NO, I'm a power ranger! (extra points if you can convince her you believe yourself) :laughing

No, difference being that Todd was in full gear. You said the officer you saw was wearing the boots. I know a few motor officers who just like to wear the sexy uniform... they don't actually care about riding the bike. It's all about the brag factor for them. :rolleyes
