How to Meet a Tall, Handsome Man While Riding Your Motorcycle

Don’t forget to bring a friend for some extra excitement!

My How To guide for meeting a handsome, tall drink o’ water on your motorcycle.

Step One: Have a Motorcycle

OMG, seriously? You already have a motorcycle? Well then, you’re already part of the way there! Go you.

Step Two: Navigate to RoadsideAmerica.com

Or, if you’re the extra fancy type, they have an iOS app for your phone. I find it particularly helpful while on the go. But, by all means – don’t listen to me. It’s not like I know a dang thing about finding weird stuff out there on the highways and byways.

While on the site or app, search for, drumroll, please… Muffler Men! Find one that’s close enough for you to ride to.

In the last couple of years, several of them have been on the move, from one state to another. It’s best to consult the oracle so you don’t get stood up on your date.

Now, don’t forget to write down directions, pin on a map, or stick a waypoint in your GPS for your newly found friend.

Step Three: Ride your Motorcycle to the Muffler Man

This very well could be the best part of your whole experience. They say it’s the journey, not the destination. I say, why can’t it be both?!

Step Four: Bask in the greatness of the Muffler Man

Some people might think, if you’ve seen one muffler man, you’ve seen ’em all. Some people are also idiots.

Though they were cast from the same mold, over time Muffler Men they’ve been repainted and repaired, customized and modified in ways that set them apart from their original look. I’ve seen some big guys with eyelashes, chest hair, unique clothing, or holding different objects. Like people, they’re the same but different.

Each time I visit a muffler man, it makes me happy. I have seen quite a few in many different states. Every visit is unique, be it from the journey I had to take to bask in the glory of the muffler man, or just the big guy himself. It’s always worth the trip.

Step Five: Share pictures of your date with a Muffler Man

If you brought a friend, have them take your picture in classic muffler man stance with your new fiberglass buddy. Flying solo? Who doesn’t love seeing your motorcycle parked next to cool stuff?

Miles and smiles, my friends.

  1. I just interviewed Doug from Roadside America. Great interview and I learned a lot from him. I just got the APP as well and it certainly is a great resource. So is knowing people who’ve seen things like this….. I wonder who…. Hmmmm….

      1. I am not sure. I visited the area last summer to attend a photography meetup in The Exchange Place. I think the Muffler Man I saw is closer to Hackensack River Waterfront on route 9.

  2. Uhhh hand waving crazily in the air, Pick me! Pick me! If you ever make it to the big guy in Tennessee I what to be in the picture with you (please) (pretty please with a doughnut!)..
