This came in to my e-mail inbox a few weeks ago. I came across it today as I was cleaning out my in-box and thought it was a keeper.

Biker Truisms

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

Four wheels move the body; two wheels move the soul.

You start riding with a full pot of luck and an empty pot of experience. The object is to fill the pot of experience before you empty the pot of luck.

If you wait, all that happens is that you get older.

Midnight bugs taste just as bad as noon time bugs.

Saddlebags can never hold everything you want, but they CAN hold everything you need.

Don't ride so late into the night that you sleep through the sunrise.

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

Never hesitate to ride past the last street light at the edge of town.

Respect the person who has seen the dark side of motorcycling and lived, and still rides.

Young riders pick a destination and go. Old riders pick a direction and go.

A good mechanic will let you watch without charging you for it.

Whatever it is, it's better in the wind.

Two-lane blacktop isn't a highway - it's an attitude.

Keep your bike in good repair. Motorcycle boots are not all that comfortable for walking.

People are like Motorcycles: each is customized a bit differently.

Sometimes, the best communication happens when you're on separate bikes.

When you're riding lead, don't spit.

Catching a yellow jacket in your shirt @ 70 mph can double your vocabulary.

Everyone crashes. Some get back on. Some don't. Some can't.

If you can't get it going with bungee cords and duct tape, God's telling you to stop for the night.

Only a Biker knows why a dog sticks his head out of a car window
