What are the odds?

I was standing outside work at 0530 this morning having a smoke, vainly hoping someone on dayshift just might happen to come in an hour and a half early so midshift could get out early (it could happen, don't kill the dream), when I see a motorcycle coming up the street. My first thought was those are some bright lights. Then I realized they look a LOT like mine. But it couldn't be another Strom, mine is the only one I've seen in Valdosta in three years. As he passed by, sure enough, it was an 03 DL1000, bright yellow. So when he pulled into the parking lot across from my building I figured I'd go say hi. As I was walking up I started thinking "I hope this guy doesn't think I'm some pscho". I introduced myself, told him I had an 06 DL650 and we got to talking. He mentioned how he wished he had the lower 650 seat, which was weird, because I've been wanting to try the bigger 1000 seat. Two minutes later I was back with my bike and we were trading seats. He was happy cause he could get his feet comfortably down, and I really liked the contouring/shape of the taller seat. So we shook hands and both went back to work with our "new" seats. Of course, now I wanted dayshift to show up early even more so I could go ride, but I still had an hour and twenty minutes to go. I did get my ride in, and wow, there is a world of difference between those seats! I hope he's as happy with the 650 seat.
