    Twelve things that a motorcycle can teach...

    1. The only good view of a thunderstorm is in your rear view mirror.
    2. Four wheels might move the body...but two wheels move the soul.
    3. I'd rather be riding my motorcycle and thinking about God than sitting
    in Church and thinking about my motorcycle.
    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. I've never seen a motorcycle parked outside a psychiatrist's office.
    And Finally:
    12. Only Bikers know why dogs stick their heads out car windows.

    The hog is my cycle; I shall not want another,
    It maketh me to lie down in muddy roads;
    It tireth my soul;
    It taketh me into the paths of disgrace for it's namesake.
    Yea, though I ride through the valleys, I walk up the hills;
    I will have no comfort while it is with me.
    It disgraces me in the presence of mine enemies and annointest my clothes with oil, my tank runneth dry.
    Surely this thing will follow me all the days of my life and I will dwell in the mad house, forever.

    HA ha! BTDT. I was riding once with my helmet visor open and had a wasp get in. Ouch!
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    Love the motorcyle threads, and have too caught a bee with visor up. No fun!

    Pick a direction and go! Love getting purposely lost and discovering.
    Exercise your 2nd amendment rights....not doing so jeopardizes that right for everyone.

    And my gps helps me figure out where I ended up and how to get back home.

    Be safe! After my second big wreck that wasn't my fault (55MPH, totaled the car that pulled out in front of me and flew 65 yards down the road), I decided not to tempt fate again. But I miss it. I do ride my bicycle a lot still :)

    Wasn't a stinging bug, but my first evening ride got me one of these just above my eye almost on my eyelid, when my safety glasses slid down. At about 75ish.

    Wasp up the shorts getting ready to turn left at a T intersection. After three stings, got him crushed before the overgeared engine died, or he stung anything fun. Worth every sting for all the good miles.

    I call hogwash. As a bike rider and a Christian, I get my rear to church on Sunday mornings to worship and then ride. :) Because you CAN think of God on a ride, but you don't.

    All the rest, I am in for. :) In fact, I just got my new dirt bike running. (87 Kawasaki KLR250...bought it cheap and rebuilt the carb!)

    I learned how fast I could stop without laying my Goldwing down when I got a wasp inside the helmet. Somehow I didn't get stung.

    +1 on #12, I can't get my wife to ride which may be a good thing. A man has to have time to think and talk with God sometimes.

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

    Yep, that's my favorite. And I don't have a GPS to get me back home--just a good sense of direcion. And if you do get lost, you just find more interesting places and things to see.
