    Motorcycle wisdom

    From a friend.....

    Four wheels move the body. Two wheels move the soul.

    Life may begin at 30, but it doesn't get real interesting until about
    60 mph.

    You start the game of life with a full pot of luck and an empty pot of
    experience. The object is to fill the pot of experience before you
    empty the pot of luck.

    If you wait, all that happens is that you get older.

    Midnight bugs taste just as bad as noon time bugs.

    Saddlebags can never hold everything you want, but they CAN hold
    everything you need.

    It takes more love to share the saddle than it does to share the bed.

    The only good view of a thunderstorm is in your rear view mirror.

    Don't ride so late into the night that you sleep through the sunrise.

    Sometimes it takes a whole tank of fuel before you can think straight.

    Riding faster than everyone else only guarantees you'll ride alone.

    Never hesitate to ride past the last street light at the edge of town.

    Never do less than forty miles before breakfast.

    One bike on the road is worth two in the garage.

    Respect the person who has seen the dark side of motorcycling and lived.

    Young riders pick a destination and go. Old riders pick a direction
    and go.

    A good mechanic will let you watch without charging you for it.

    Sometimes the fastest way to get there is to stop for the night.

    Whatever it is, it's better to do it in the wind.

    Two-lane blacktop isn't a highway, it's an attitude.

    When you look down the road it seems to never end, but you better
    believe, it does.

    Winter is nature's way to tell you to polish.

    Motorcycle boots are NOT comfortable for walking. That's why they are
    called "motorcycle boots."

    People are like motorcycles; each is customized a bit differently.

    Sometimes the best communication happens when you are on separate bikes.

    Good coffee should be indistinguishable from 50 weight motor oil.

    The best alarm clock is sunshine on chrome.

    A friend is someone who'll get out of bed at 2 a.m. to drive his pickup
    to the middle of nowhere to get you when you're broken down.

    Catching a yellow jacket in your shirt at 70 mph can double your

    If you want to get somewhere before sundown, you can't stop at every

    There's something ugly about a NEW bike on a trailer.

    Everyone crashes. Some get back on. Some don't. Some can't. Be careful

    Don't argue with an 18-wheeler, a bus, or even a car.

    Never be ashamed to unlearn an old habit.

    A long ride can clear your mind, restore your faith and use up a lot of

    If you can't get it going with bungee cords, wire and electrician's tape,
    it's serious.

    If you ride like there's no tomorrow, there won't be.

    Bikes parked out front mean good chicken-fried steak inside.

    There are old riders. And there bold riders. There are NO old, bold

    Always replace the cheapest parts first.

    You can forget what you do for a living when your knees are in the

    Patience is the ability to keep your motor idling.

    Only a biker knows why a dog sticks his head out the car window.

    There are two types of people in this world; people who ride
    motorcycles and people who wish they could ride motorcycles.

    Never try to race an old geezer, he may have one more gear than you.

    Gray-haired riders don't get that way from pure luck.
