For all you motorcycle riders out there

Twelve Important Things My Motorcycle Has Taught Me
  1. The only good view of a thunderstorm is in your rear view mirror.
  2. Four wheels move the body; two wheels move the soul.
  3. I'd rather be riding my motorcycle and thinking about God, than sitting in church thinking about my bike.
  4. Life may begin at 30, but it doesn't get real interesting until about 75 mph.
  5. Midnight bugs taste just as bad as noon time bugs.
  6. Sometimes it takes a whole tank full of gas before you can think straight.
  7. A bike on the road is worth two in the shed.
  8. Young riders pick a destination and go; old riders pick a direction and go.
  9. When you're riding lead, don't spit.
  10. Catching a yellow jacket in your shirt at 75 mph can double your vocabulary. Catching a yellow jacket in your helmet will triple that special vocabulary.
  11. If you can't get it going with bungee cords and duct tape, it's serious.
  12. Only a biker knows why a dog sticks his head out of a car window.
  13. (Bonus) I've never seen a motorcycle parked in front of a psychiatrist's office.

Here are a few more:

  • Sometimes the fastest way to get there is to stop for the night.
  • Always back your bike into the curb and sit where you can see it.
  • Ride to work. Work to ride.
  • Two-lane blacktop isn't a highway - it's an attitude.
  • When you look down the road, it seems to never end; sadly we all come to realize that it does.
  • Winter is nature's way of telling you to test the electrics.
  • Keep your bike in good repair. Motorcycle boots are not all that comfortable for walking.
  • People are like motorcycles; each is customized a bit differently.
  • Sometimes, the best communication happens when you're on separate bikes.
  • Everyone crashes. Some get back on. Some don't. Some can't.
  • You can forget what you do for a living when your knees are in the breeze.
