GREAT MOTORCYCLE QUOTES AND WISDOM...



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



"Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the

handlebars to the saddle."



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

110."



"You start the game of life with a full pot o' luck and an empty pot

o' experience... The object is to fill the pot of experience before you

empty the pot of luck."



"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving

safely in one pretty and well preserved piece, but to skid across the

line broadside, thoroughly used up, worn out, leaking oil, shouting

HOLY CRAP!"



"Never trade the thrills of living for the security of existence".



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



Midnight bugs taste best.



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



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



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

Never be afraid to slow down.



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



Sometimes it takes a whole tankful of fuel before you can think

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 of telling you to polish.



Keep your bike in good repair: Motorcycle boots are NOT comfortable for walking.



People are like Motorcycles: each is customized a bit differently.



Sometimes the best communication happens when you're on separate bikes.



Good coffee should be indistinguishable from 50 weight motor oil.



The best alarm clock is sunshine on chrome.



The twisties - not the superslabs -separate the riders from the

squids.



When you're riding lead, don't spit.



If the person in the next lane at the stoplight rolls up the window

and locks the door, support their view of life by snarling at them.



A friend is someone who'll get out of bed at 2 am to drive his pickup

to the middle of nowhere to get you when you're broken down.



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

vocabulary.



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



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



Don't lead the pack if you don't know where you're going.



Sleep with one arm through the spokes and keep your pants on.



Practice wrenching on your own bike.



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



Don't argue with an 18-wheeler.



Never be ashamed to unlearn an old habit.



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



If you can't get it going with bungee cords 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.



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



There are drunk riders. There are old riders. There are NO old, drunk riders.



Thin leather looks good in the bar, but it won't save your butt from

"road rash" if you go down.



The best modifications cannot be seen from the outside.



Always replace the cheapest parts first.

that matters in the end."

Attn Kawasaki 10R lovers!!

Very good post Pip!!!

Some of my favorite quotes came from Motor Cyclist May 2004, when they tested the 10R...

"The 10R covers a quater-mile in less time than it takes to read this sentance, and it punishes incompetence, impudence, and stupidity even more quickly. Too much throttle, almost anywhere, and it'll stick you in the ground like a golf tee."

"It's predatory silhouette alone makes small children, domestic pets and impressionable girls hypercentilate. If it lived next door, the ZX-10R would bet heavily on the Oakland Raiders. It would own an overwrought Rottwiler named Cujo and play all 11 Metallica albums every weekend - with the dial cranked up to 11. Your mother wouldn't approve, Your black-sheep uncle doing time for armed robbery would advise against it!"

"The biggest challenge in point-and-shoot land, or anywhere else for that matter, is keeping the front wheel on the ground. Get sloopy with body position or throttle control just for an instant, and you're riding a 162 horse unicycle."

I just love that article....had to read it all over again... :drool: :D
