Got asked the most odd question on our ride this past weekend.....

Me and my girlfriend were riding through some trails and parks over the weekend.
Decided we'd take out some of my old DB Pros.

We came up on two kids staring at us.
Out of nowhere, one of them asked me if I stole my bike?
WTH kinda question is that??
Then they followed us for a little bit.

Not 15 minutes later another dude said "those are some nice bikes".

As much as I appreciated the compliment, I told my gf I felt like I was riding on a target.
Got kind of paranoid the rest of the ride.

Anyone else get asked odd questions like this riding their old school bikes?

Re: Got asked the most odd question on our ride this past weekend.....

I have never been asked any questions about my bikes but when I ride, I'm on a mission and am travelling pretty fast with an ipod blaring in my ears.

I did ask some kid about his '83 Silver Streak I saw one day and probably freaked him out a bit. Once we chatted a bit he realized I was normal and just stoked on his old bike that his dad gave him and I wasn't some sort of weird pedophile. tongue

Re: Got asked the most odd question on our ride this past weekend.....

A bunches of kids hanging down at gas station saw me riding my red 87 master and asking me when they did came out?  it's looks bad ass want one and one of kids asked me is there any other color beside red? But I told to kids it's not new it's old from 1980's and the kids wouldn't believe me and telling me that I am an idiot the haro isn't that old it's new yikes
While later kids came to me and apologize to me said that I was right after talking to LBS.

Re: Got asked the most odd question on our ride this past weekend.....

Went riding in local park last fall before it got real cold. I was on my '84 Haro Sport riding with my daughter. There is a small quarter pipe and couple small ramps at the park. Usually occupied by a few skateboarders. We were riding on the track around park as she just wanted to ride her bike. Ran across a few young kids on newer bikes. They looked really hard at mine and me. I was thinking they were more interested in laughing at this old guy with a grey goatee riding a 20 inch. I'm sure they were discussing what in the world kinda bike was that old dude riding as we went outta sight. LOL

Re: Got asked the most odd question on our ride this past weekend.....

Only question I ever get from kids are why the top and down tubes are so thick? Then I get the occasional laughter from them being my frames old (even though looks better tongue) and then I just show em' up at the park and they just get lost for words and stay silent lol It's all good though.

Someone asked me down at the docks if I bought my assless chaps to match my purple reign Hollywood, or if it was just a crazy coincidence.

Curious dose anybody getting that kind of looking really hard at you when you rode pink bike? Just curious because I has Magenta strike zone that I hesitate to ride around without my neighbor getting wrong idea of I'm some kind of middle aged pedophile.

Re: Got asked the most odd question on our ride this past weekend.....

Out at a local spot one day a kid asked if I was riding a "real" bmx bike. I asked him what made a bmx bike "real." He simply stated that he'd never seen a "real" bmx bike with brakes. Kids these days.

Re: Got asked the most odd question on our ride this past weekend.....

no so much weird question, but I remember one time riding my bike home from seeing my girlfriend at that time (same vegas I own today) and a bunch of Hispanic fellows in a wire wheeled Monte Carlo sizing me up at a stop sign. light turns green and they pace me. half way up to a dirt lot they speed up and turn off at the dirt lot... Momma didn't raise no fool! I turned the hell around and booked it up a side street to get back to Palmdale Blvd..where there would be too many witnesses.  I think about it now and wonder what my white ass was doing on that side of town anyways with a 500$ (at that time) bike.... must have been out my freaking mind....

Re: Got asked the most odd question on our ride this past weekend.....

i took my 82 PK Ripper to a nearby dirt track and a 10 yr old asked if he could ride my "antique" bmx bike big_smile  so i gave it to him and he was pretty awesome on it till he hit a jump and got a little bit more air than he's used to and wiped out !! and hit his nuts on the "higher seat than he's used to" and fell to the ground moaning and laughing at the same time while holding his crotch with both hands lollol  and his friend rode up to him and asked him if he was ok, and he whimpered while laughing " i hit my genital organs " lollollol and then added that, that is the coolest bike ever !!!!  we all died laughing lollol and it turned out that his father is an acquaintance. once he recovered he told us that the Ripper is so much lighter and easier to ride. wink

Re: Got asked the most odd question on our ride this past weekend.....

You got asked if you stole it because everyone thinks 20" are kids bikes. When i come out of a store and ride off on one of mine people look at me like i stole it. And im only 30! I think its funny myself that and i get kids asking what kind of bike i have. I tell them and they never heard of it, they i lay out the "its older then you", even though its a y2k still is the truth.


She just loves my 20"! And one day you will too!
