Talking Favorite Motorcycle quote

Sitting Is Not A Sport.

There is no World Champion of sitting. No governing body to ensure that when two people try to out sit each other, they do it by the rules. Because sitting is not a sport. Unfortunately, most people that buy sportbikes do just that. They hit the starter button, raise the kickstand, gently release the clutch, and sit their asses off. There's nothing wrong with these people. They just bought the wrong bike. A sportbike is not designed to be sat on. It's designed to be hung off. Moved around on. Constantly manipulated beneath the rider. A self-propelled platform upon which a sport takes place. Before you buy a sportbike, take a moment to think about what you really want to do on it. If the answer involves sitting, you may want to consider something different. A porch swing maybe, or one of those floating pool chairs.


My favorite bike quote of all time

Agreed, maybe in 40 years when I turn 70 it might be Harley time.

Unless of course you're lazy, scared of speed and out of shape, then a Harley is right for you:

As a chick, I know I shouldn't, but when I see "If you can read this, the bitch fell off.", I have to giggle.

I've seen some biker chicks with the shirt that says "This Bitch don't fall off" on the back.

I love you like a big sister but jeebus man, dump trucks have the most torque.

Obviously those skid-plates you call helmets aren't very good are they?

Breakdowns and rebuilds create character in the owner as well as in the machine.
Perhaps that's why I still run out of gas occasionally-there's nothing like pushing a 500 pound motorcycle that last half mile to make you appreciate the wonders of the internal combustion engine.
