Reps. Scott Rigell and Reid Ribble woke up on Thursday and planned their commutes to work. Their first thoughts? Their Harleys.
Ribble instigated the motorcycle talk on Twitter by asking if his fellow Republican's Harley actually exists.
I hear that @RepScottRigell has a motorcycle, but I haven't seen it--skeptical.— Reid Ribble (@RepRibble) May 19, 2016
Minutes later, he joked that Rigell’s battery is “conveniently” dead.
Now @RepScottRigell claims that his @harleydavidson "conveniently" has a dead battery. Uh huh. pic.twitter.com/z5ZSHEPBV8 — Reid Ribble (@RepRibble) May 19, 2016
Rigell responded “@RepRibble @harleydavidson How about you ride your alleged "motorcycle" over here and help out! #lesstweets #morehelp.”
The Virginia Republican tried to charge his battery, hoping the two could ride together to vote in style.
Ribble brought a battery charger over to Rigell’s house near the Capitol to see if he could have any luck, but the bike still wouldn’t start. So Ribble of Wisconsin suggested Rigell jump on the back of his bike.
Rigell declined this time, but the two agreed to ride alongside each other in the near future.
But, while Rigell's bike is in the shop, keep your eyes peeled for a two-wheeled ride share.
