Family man, Larry Tillman, found himself in quite a pickle as he approached a young lady on a brand new Triumph Trident – knowing practically nothing about motorcycles.
“I had my kid with me and he looked up at me with complete trust that – as the man of the household – I knew something about it,” said Larry. “In reality, the only thing I know about motorcycles is that there’s a 99.7 percent chance of certain death if you ride one. And I learned that from my wife.”
To make matters worse for Larry, the motorcyclist looked up and made eye contact with him – ensuring he’d have to say something. “I don’t know what came over me, but I suddenly knew exactly what I had to say,” Larry said. “It went something like this, ‘How many CCs is that? Oh, nice! I bet it’s pretty quick. Great day for a ride. Alright now, be safe out there!’”
Against all odds, Larry had fooled everyone… except the motorcyclist.
“It all happened so fast that I honestly don’t know if she even responded to each of those statements, but I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out,” Larry said. “Afterwards, my boy asked me if I used to ride motorcycles, to which I responded: ‘I sure did, bud. I used to ride dirtbikes.’”
