MOTORCYCLE WISDOM........

I'd rather be riding my motorcycle thinking about God than sitting in church thinking about my motor cycle.

Four wheels move the body, two wheels move the soul.

You start the game 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.

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

A cold hamburger can be reheated quite nicely by strapping it to an exhaust pip and riding forty miles.

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

Keep your bike in good repair, motorcycle boots are not comfortable for walking.

The best alarm clock is sunshine on chrome.

If you don't ride in the rain, you don't ride.

Catching a yellow-jacket in your shirt at seventy miles per hour can double your vocabulary.

Well trained reflexes are better than luck.

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

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

Safety is a cheap and effective insurance policy.

Never ride faster than your guardian angel can fly.

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

If the person in the next lane at the stoplight rolls up the window and locks the door, support their view of life my snarling at them.

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

If she changes her oil more than she changes her mind, follow her.

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

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

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

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

Compliments of Bill Dixon, a friend who would drive to find me at 2 am with a pickup!!

Wait until Jack is in school and his Grandma comes to pick him up on her Harley. That will probably be the coolest day of his life.

Oh, and I'm guessing it was Jay who said Nick Jonas is so "dreamy". No? Maybe Jayson? Hmmm, you? Well, gosh, who else would think it?

OMG, I should have known it was G.G.! She's always liked the younger men!!! The great thing about guys is no matter how old you get, G.G., they can always stay 17.

Good list. Nothing I would disagree with.

This is AWESOME Lisa! I love it! Even though I'm not old enough to ride by myself, I love riding. I go with my Uncles a lot. All of these are so true and good words of wisdom. ♥ Love it! Did you make up all of these?
