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:
"They can't hit you if you ain't there!"

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.

An Old MOPAR builder I knew back in the day used to always say if you're going off the road floor it and one night up on Snoqualimie pass we were going off I-90 in to a monster snow bank and he did indeed floor it (1971 440 4bbl 4sp Dana 60 Cuda) well all it did was drive us farther out into the median filled with 6 feet of powder lol but what a night to remember. It was two guys and 4 very cold girls stuck overnite in the snow I was glad I was in that "crash" lol

btw car was totally unharmed it was like landing on a giant marshmallow even the 2 post road sign we clipped off had just enough snow pack that it didn't even damage the rare and fragile 71 CUDA grill

That's the face I make when I open the door and missionaries or JW's are standing there instead of a pizza.
