    Thought I'd start this thread just for some laughs.

    These are my 3 favorite comments to date..

    Gawker :How fast does that thing go?
    Me: About 130mph
    Gawker: I thought it would do 200mph.

    Two good ole' boys in a pickup truck pull up next to me in a parking lot
    Gawker: What's that a Harley?
    Me: No it's a Polaris
    Gawker: Better
    They drive off.

    Gawker: That's Weird.

    The dumbest one was about 4 months ago in a parking lot. Guy walks up and says he loves it and asks if it floats. I kid you not.

    He was serious and caught me off guard so I just said "No. It doesn't float. It's not a watercraft". He looked perplexed and I knew I didn't want to continue the conversation so I just said nice talking to you, gotta run.

    I haven't had many yet but got this in my mom's condo parking lot.

    Old dude with little dog: That's Wow!
    That's just Wow!
    That is really Wow!
    Turns and walks away.

    Kids at our church say we are to old to have something like that, the older folks just want a ride.

    While pumping gas into it:

    "Awesome! Is it electric?"

    Oh you can definitely take it on water. But then it promptly sinks. I was asked the same question.

    My stupidest to date was "Is that thing electric?" Said while I am pumping gasoline into it. My response was "Why yes it is, I am filling it with liquid electricity now." Lady looked baffled then ashamed and drove off.

    I get all the other usuals too:
    - Did you build that?
    - How much does it cost?
    - Every variant of bat mobile comments
    - Is that front wheel drive?

    I've had a few "does it steer from the rear?" and "how is it off road?" Even with all the normal comments and questions I still enjoy talking w/people about it.

    Took the SS to the store yesterday. Spent 10 minutes in the store and 1/2 hour in parking lot.

    Best comment

    Told the person that I added the top because of the heat and sun driving in the Central Valley.

    The response, "it doesn't have air conditioning?"

    Had a guy ask me what happens if it rains. I told him I get wet.
