Things my Motorcycle Taught me 8 Years, 7 Months ago  
Things my Motorcycle has Taught Me

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

People ask us why we ride a motorcycle. For those who have
experienced the joy, no explanation is necessary; for those who have not,
no explanation is possible.

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

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 40, but it doesn't get real interesting until
about 80 mph!

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.

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.

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

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

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

Never do less than forty miles before breakfast.

A bike on the road is worth two in the shed.

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

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.

Always back your bike into the curb and sit where you can see it.

There are drunk riders and there are old riders, but there are not
many old, drunk riders.

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; but you better
believe 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.

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

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 @ 70 mph can double your
vocabulary.

Catching a yellow jacket in your helmet will triple that special
vocabulary.

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

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

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

If you ride like there's no tomorrow, today will be a BLAST!

The best modifications cannot be seen from the outside.

Always replace the cheapest parts first.

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

Only a Biker knows why a dog sticks his head out of a car window.

Keep the paint up, and the rubber down!

There are two types of people in this world -people who ride and people who wish they did.

Alot of people don't realize this, but God doesn't live in a church, He lives in our hearts!

Gotta seriously invite Him in first... and His name is Jesus. He's the Savior... the only One there is. Don't leave earth without Him!

And, the way cagers drive around here... you really want to be ready.

Amen to that Quest and BadBiker.

The California drivers want to use you as traction.

It's not where He lives, but where He can be found and if you have to wonder, that's one's not it, keep searching.

No, it is not. Being in church and not having your mind and heart on God would be though. The point is, the open road can open your mind and heart to the wonders of creation and bring you to a place where you appreciate our maker. Wherever you find God, that is where you should be. God would agree.

Re:Things my Motorcycle Taught me 8 Years, 7 Months ago  
Unfortunately (at times) for my parents, I was a very smart child. And like most 5 year-olds, I didn't like going to church because I actually had to sit still for more than 10 minutes.

One Sunday as I was being corralled into the family's 1969 Dodge Sport Suburban Station Wagon (I'll never forget that car--had a 383! ) for the weekly trip to church, I asked my mom why we had to go. "We go to worship and pray," is what I think she said.

So I looked at her for a second and then asked "Is the steeple on top of the church an antenna to send our prayers to God?"

"No, it's not...that's just part of the church," she said.

"Well," I asked "then why can't we just stay home if God can hear our prayers from home?"

I got THAT look and was told to get in the car.

'nuff said...I still think I won.
