    "People" have the crappiest advice...

    "Faster, faster, faster, until the thrill of speed overcomes the fear of death."
    - Hunter S. Thompson

    “It’s more fun to ride a slow bike fast, than a fast bike slow”.

    "The less horsepower a motorcycle has, the more it can teach you.” - Ben Bostrom

    And though a mountain may rise up and smack the livin' shit outta me,
    and wad up my bike somethin' awful...
    Still, I rise!

    Not to worry, if the bike doesn't get you....something else will....it always does! So we might as well all go out on our own terms and with a smile on our face!

    I am not a philosopher and I will never get to write for Hallmark. There comes a time in life you have to let your sack drop and lose the fear of dying of something other than a decaying heart.

    Everyone should invent a joke and/or an expression before they die. Mine: "Buy the best motorcycle you can so you won't outlive your savings." Michael Bryce Winnick April 16, 2019.

    Taking Michael Bryce Winnick's lead...here's one of mine. Related to motorcycle riding safety:

    Here's one from my Old Man that has actually been a major influence in my life.
    I was probably 15-16 and becoming a major screw up.
    His admonition, short & sweet:
    "Give a Damn!"

    I knew immediately just what he meant.

    Thanks Dad...you nailed it!
    I miss you every day.

    I read this some were

    “I don’t ride motorcycles to add days to my life, I ride motorcycles to add life to my days.” Think that about sums it up for me.

    I got pretty messed up in 2012 by a inattentive car driver while out on one of my bikes. Did a lot of damage to me but I knew I wanted to ride again. A lot of people around me thought I was insane and questioned me. My answer was always what good was it to survive the damn accident if I’m going to stop living.
