Fred Rau's List: "you might be a motorcyclist if ..."
« on: November 13, 2018, 06:35:10 PM »
Fred Rau was guest speaker at STAR 2007 Asheville - I think?


My favorite part of his presentation was "you might be a motorcyclist if ..." (like Foxworthy's "you might be a redneck if " list).


I would like to retrieve Fred's list by contacting Fred or maybe it's posted somewhere (google has not helped).


 :helpme:


Thanks

Wasn’t he the speaker in Lexington?  That was hilarious.  I’d like to get a copy too.

Not sure which year it was, but I was there. Could have 07 Asheville, or the more recent (2014?) Lexington.

I also recall reading some article like that in MCN. I think he mentioned he has done several of these lists over time.

I found this email address through his tour operator site   fred@fredrau.com

I didn't attend 2014 Lexington, so really can't say.  In any case I've emailed Fred to asking if the "you might be a motorcyclist if ..." list is available somewhere.

Fred is the best, been reading his works for years. It truly was a pleasure (except for the splitting sides) to have him at STAR.  TM
Tom's addition: You might be a true motorcyclists if you remember that Fred had done a "You're a motorcyclist" list.

No response yet from my Nov. 15 email to Fred Rau regarding access to his  "you might be a motorcyclist if ..." list.


So, since Ohio weather seems stuck in winter mode, I began creating my own list JFF.


MSTA members are invited to view, and add to the list.  Just click below for the Google doc.

Good ones, Paul!  The oil and tires comments are forever true.
