Question What's the dumbest thing anyone has said about your bike/gear?

I recall getting gas on one of my motorcycle trips, and as I'm fueling up in my full leathers, I heard the cager next to me comment about how ridiculous my gear looks and I must be stupid for wearing it in 100+ degree weather. I wanted to respond "well please stop trying to kill me on the streets and all this gear would not be necessary" argh!

What is the dumbest thing anyone has said about your gear or bike? Tell us the story, give details!

Ridiculous Comments

The old Quote "you can't fix stupid" comes to mind when people make comments like that Duc. The U.S. is Ducati's biggest market and with increased sales, people are going to see more of us. Maybe that person rides another brand and is jealous. So far I haven't had any bad comments spoken to me directly, however I've had some "looks" if you know what I mean.

I cant say that I have had any legitimately negative comments about the Diavel.

Ive had a few people say that I paid too much but a simple explaination about value clears that up.

Dumbest thing I heard from someone is "I was to bought an Ducati, but changed my mind when I saw that it's just 2 cilinders, instead of 4... and that's why I bought my Honda Hornet".

That one was really a pain...

Just yesterday had a co-worker ask, "Ducati is Italian right? But are they made in, like, China?"

Well that's not too stupid, they do make them in Thailand, but they are for the Asian market only to get around massive import taxes.
