[DML] Re: Just curious - parade participation



Oh boy do people touch it, lick it, rub it!  Well, at least they 
touch it.  It's like a moth to a flame.  They get that glazed look in 
their eyes and they just HAVE GOT to touch the stainless steel.  The 
first show I did 6 years ago I had so many hand prints on the car 
that I spent the entire day wiping them off.  Very frustrating.  So, 
since then I invested in some stantions and chains, as well as a tent 
to keep it out of the sun and the bird droppings off.  I also bring 2 
or more people to answer questions and of course to help out with any 
other bikes or cars I show.  At my most recent show I actually had a 
guy with a cigarette in hand duck the chain and get in the car.  I 
was amazed that someone was so rude, not to mention the fact my 
interior is perfect and I'm not a big fan of cigarette smelling seats 
or burn in my interior.  But, that's how people are sometimes.  Oh, 
and I can't count how many times you hear, "Where's the flux 
capacitor?", and how the person is surprised that you finish their 
sentence before they do.  They all think they're so original.  But, 
it's all in the name of fun and like I said before.  I love to see 
that smile on their face when they first lay eyes on it and I'll 
never tire of them saying, "I've never seen one in real life before!"
