Then I'm no biker and satisfied with that. Doesn't get washed unless it rains or I need to tool on it. If all it does is look good then it gets removed(waitin for the other to go off worantee then things will go off too).
MY explanation of a "true BIKER" is someone who RESPECTS his bike enough to keep it mechanically maintained and takes NO chances when it comes to taking either a long ride or a short putt. A BIKER keeps their bike lookin' great because they know it says a LOT about THEM ... it is a "reflection" of who they are and what they're about.
Clyde, glad I brought some memories back for ya. Thanks for sharing that awesome story. Your story brought back old stories of my own. As far as what we are? I guess it matters who is sizing us up?????? But, the way I see it is we don't have to prove ourselves to anyone. Ride safe and ride free!
For some strange rweason uyour post brought back memories of a rweally ratty HD I ran across in this town at the end of the road. Other than the few residents the only thing there was a tavern.
I didn't have a camera with me that day, but I wished I did. This ratty old Harley had all kinds of wire and fasteners on it holding it together and holding things onto it. NO instruments at all. I don't know one HD from another, but this bike was OLDE, cuz it had all kinds of oil leaks! With all the bailing wire in various places I wondered how it got around. But I'll bet it was a GREAT bike though.
Clyde...I've chosen my soon to be brother-in-law, unless there's someone special in my life on a very long term, to "carry" me for a last ride when the time comes...I've decided to be cremated and Steve will take me for that last ride and open the little box up and let my ashes go as free as my soul and spirit will be...I would love to have the ones that I consider friends to ride with me that day! :) Angel
Well geez, to be or not to be a biker????? Frankly, I ride because I want to. What people think???? I don't really give a rats a$$. I am not out to impress anyone. I don't care if you don't like the kind of bike that I ride. I don't care if you don't like my opinions. I respect everyone who rides, regardless of what they ride. I respect all Brother's and Sister's. I respect your right to be your own person.... as long as can walk your own walk and talk your own talk. I believe that I was put on this earth to make the best of my time while I am here..... helping others along the way... not just taking up space. I try not to judge anyone. I leave that to the higher powers that be. Now I do believe spring has finally sprung!!!!! I am outta here...... Let's RIDE!
If you own a motorcycle, you might be a Biker.
If your motorcycle is worth more than your cage, you might be a Biker.
If your second motorcycle is worth more than your cage, you might be a Biker.
If you keep your motorcycle in the house, you might be a Biker.
If you keep your motorcycle in your house while your x-wife, girlfriend, or Mom come to visit, you might be a Biker.
If you get a little jumpy when you see someone walking a male dog near your Bike, you might be a Biker.
If it's in your blood, you might be a Biker.
Well I to am not sure if I qualify, Never really thought about weather or not I was a "biker". There is a huge poster on the wall of Timms HD here in Anderson of my dad on his 48 Indian with Charley Timms. My mothers nickname is boots, because of the Nancy Sinatra knee highs she wore while dating my dad on his Indian and 74. This is the way I thought everyones life was like. When my dad passed away his casket was chrome, and his last request of me was for the last thing he felt before they put him in the ground was the ground pounding from as many V-twins as we could find to lead the parade, There were 78. All this being said I never really thought if I was a biker or not, it's just the way life is supposed to be.
