    Harry; I had a similar experience when I first got my 1941 Harley 80" chopper running. I stopped at a Mobile Station to gas up. The attendant that pumped the gas asked if it was a triumph? Oh well. I was riding and he was pumping gas. I felt better.

    Love your '55 BMW, Robbie. It stands alone in good looks; is there a back story on it?

    I was stopped at a red light on my 1936 H-D VLH and the guy behind me yells out... HEY, is that an Indian? I just said "no, it's a Harley". I don't mind... the light turned to Green and off I went! I think we all have had similar stories. FUN to read them! I also have a 68 Dodge pickup (restored, but I use as a pickup truck) and NEVER does anyone say anything about it when I stop for gas or at the Home Depot.... it's like, it is just an old truck and nobody cares! HAHA!! It's fine!
