Motorcycle lessons

I really love riding my motorcycle.  Here are a few things that I've learned from my time spent astride my iron steed.  (I LOVE #3)!  Thanks for passing these on to me, Troy!

12 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. I'd rather be riding my motorcycle and thinking about God, than sitting in church thinking about my bike.

4. Life may begin at 30, but it doesn't get real interesting until about 75 mph.

5. Midnight bugs taste just as bad as Noon time bugs.

6. Sometimes it takes a whole tank full 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're riding lead, don't spit.

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

11. If you can't get it going with bungee cords and duct tape, it's serious.

12. Only a biker knows why a dog sticks his head out of a car window.

Love it! My hubby and I have switched from two wheels back to four since haaving kids.....we found that a Jeep gives the same open air thrill on back roads and we can include the whole family. One day when little ones are grown we'll get back to riding!

The Jeep is a good solution, but it can't be NEARLY as easy to park as the motorcycle is!

Thanks for stopping by.
