Riding a Segway is an invitation for others to be weird too

Owning a Segway is weird. It's also, it seems, an invitation for others to be weird.

Today as I was heading from my apartment to my new home to meet the movers there, I was waiting at a crosswalk, and suddenly a guy on a motorcycle in the left turn lane waved, looked to see if it was safe, and then rode his motorcycle right onto the sidewalk and stopped next to me to ask me about the Segway.

Maybe where you live it's normal for people on motorcycles to drive onto sidewalks from the street, but here, that qualifies as weird.
