Smile 12 things I've learned...........


Twelve things my motorcycle has taught me.


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

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

3. Never, ever let a cattle hauler pass you.

4. Life may begin at 30, but it doesn't get interesting until about 95 mph.

5. Midnight bugs taste just as bad as noontime bugs.

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

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

8. Young riders pick a destination and go, old riders pick a direction and go.

9. When you are riding lead, don't spit.

10. Catching a yellow jacket in your shirt at 75 mph can double your vocabulary.

11. Only riders know why dogs stick their heads out car windows.

12. I've never seen a motorcycle parked outside a psychiatrist's office.

I would like to add to #3. Not only pass but going the opposite direction.

I just realized this a few months ago.

I live in a small town, Sacramento and the "big cities" (as they refer to it here) are at least 30 miles away.

One of the roads is two lane, one North bound and one south bound.

Needless to say a cattle truck was going the other direction and I was SPLASHED by stinking stuff. I still can't come to the realization of saying what I know it was that splashed me.


YUCK!!!

Just fricking great. Funny thing is I developed an ear infection soon after that and I've NEVER had any issues with my ears.

Did I describe the lanes wrong? I've never truly understood the correct way to describe the number of lanes.

A few months ago, I was watching this documentary on National Geographics channel about India. Apparently they have this tradition of eating cow dung and drinking cow urine for special occasions, like marriage or buying a new house. If they can swallow that stuff and survive, you'll be just fine, Diamond. If anything, you'll reach enlightenment before us!

If anybody doesn't believe this, just do a Google search, and amaze yourself with what some people eat and drink.

Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
