The People in Your Neighborhood

I've started seeing a new face in the Phoenix-area motorcycle commuter scene. This morning I caught up with him at a stoplight, but didn't get a chance to say howdy before the light turned green.

This fellow is on a Buell, generally wearing a ski-mask with no helmet. I've only seen him in the mornings, so I have no idea if he wears his ski-mask all the time or not. If so, he gets points for high style.

We moto-commuters are an eccentric bunch, so I always get a kick out of seeing everyone else's take on non-conformity. It's just another benefit of commuting on a superior vehicle.

Isn't it funny how you noticed one guy on your morning turf who stood out. Maybe you'll get a chance to talk at a light or something. I like to wear a really long scarf around my neck when riding in the winter, so it flies out behind me. I imagine people see me and laugh.

When my buddy Baldy-Beard got his scooter, Lady Luck and I gave him a bright pink scarf (with tassles) to wear when he rode it.

So far as I know, he never did. A shame.
