Chou think your bad?

Way back when, I lived in Phoenix (Glendale), AZ. I had been there about a week. My friend Chris and I decided to go for a ride. Chris and I were new to Phoenix and had no idea about the Glendale element. Chris had a beautiful blue Harley Davidson Panhead chopper. It was a bad ass bike. It was all chrome, springer front end, hard tail, pulled back ape hanger handle bars, with a tall sissy bar. It was your classic, old school chopper.

We stopped a QT to get some ciggies. A low rider Chevy pulls in. The young man in the car was glaring at us. He was looking all gang banger with his blue bandanna-doo rag on his head.
He got out of his car and walked towards us. He was wanting a fight. He approached us and asked in a very strong Chicano street accent, “Sooo, chou think your pretty bad on your on harleydavisonmotorcycle, DON'T chou?

Chris and I turned and looked at each other and just started laughing our a$$e$ off. I don't know if it was the accent, the way the guy carried himself, or what. It was just funny. Hell, it was hilarious. The guy gave us a very confused look and just walked away with his tail between his legs, got in his car, and left. Chris and I were still laughing as he pulled out.

Good thing you weren't guys... it might not have turned out so well! Sort of sounds like a scene out of "High Noon" (only with Hogs instead of horses)! ~ jb///

Hi Rain,

It was back in 1982-1983. God, I'm old!!!

Chris was a guy, right? Not that a girl can't own a bad-ass Harley, but would a gangbanger wanna-be pick on a couple of girls? LZ is confusing me.

I like chou-speak, especially when a hot Italian mom says it, "Yo, MA! 'S Dominic witchou?" We don't get that flavor this far north. Everyone just mumbles up here :-(
