They can't tell who you are when you're wearing your gear

My wife was riding her '05 grey Maj through downtown Sacramento last week. She wears a full-face helmet with a smoked visor, black Olympia jacket and pants, black gloves and boots. A guy in a sedan leaned out his window at a stoplight and asked, "I don't see a shifter, what is that?" Debbie says, "It's a scooter, it has an automatic transmission." As soon as she started to speak, the guys mouth dropped open, he sputters a bit, and does this unintentional Hank Hill impression, "Wha... you're a GIRL!" Debbie said she bust out laughing and almost fell off the bike right there. Then the light changed and she was able to roll on the throttle and was away.

that's funny :D

i had the opposite experience many years ago.

when i had first started to ride, i had a suzuki TS 185 road / trail bike.
i had a gearsack rack and bag on the back of it, and would routinely go through my local Mcdonalds drive thru.

one time i went through in a car, and the girl at the window said "you're not riding today ?" she had not seen me before without my helmet on. i was blown away, as most people have no idea who's under all the protective gear !
