The Motorcycle Diaries, No. 5

The scene: An office building at the end of the day.  There's a cop (no doubt off-duty, and hired by the office complex) directing traffic so that workers can pull out safely onto the busy road.

A guy rides out of the parking garage on a motorcycle.  A guy in a suit.  He pulls up to where the cop is directing traffic.  The cop motions for him to wait.

The cop says to him, "Nice day to ride a bike."

"Sure is," I replied.


You'd never have that conversation in a car.

* Standard disclaimer: If you came here by searching for Che, you do know that he condemned teenagers to execution and then enjoyed watching, don't you? If you don't, let your Google-fu lead you. He was a sick, murdering bastard who killed children. Yeah, and a bit dreamy, anti-establishment for ignorant Lefties. You're not one of them, right?
