    I ride because it's fun. If it's not enjoyable, what's the point? Go to work every day, have other interests, play music, etc. When you think about it, we're all different, we have different lives, but we all enjoy riding our bikes. That's what makes it so great when we're riding down the highway, we pass a biker going the other way, and we take our left hand off the grip and lower it, in a salute to that person we don't know, but have something in common with - the love of the highway, on the bike.

    thanks sweetpee, your post are always an inspiration to me , i also try to inspire the younger people out there, before they see or go thru the things i went thru as a young man growing up, and that the people that you hang or ride with can have a good or bad effect on thier lives, i am know a christian man ,and when i use the words brother or sister its not because i ride or they do, its is because you are all my brothers and sisters in christ,and i am yours , and i hope that the life i lived and the lessons i learned and the life that i live today, has gave me the strength and wisdom that i need the move on to next thing i feel i need to do with my life, becomeing a pastor or minister thats rides a motorcycle, i feel thats what my calling is at this time,and i hope i can make a difference in peoples lives, or help children from being abused or neglected, or help a marriage stay together,or maybe help a parent that has lost there way,or get off drugs or alcohol and get back on track in life ,i have learned in life that people dont have a zipper on thier chest, and you cant give some one a heart, or honor in there lives, but you can be compass to some that do want to live a better life, or put the lord in it ,DD81...<><

    DoubleD,

    We are close to the same age and probably had many of the same experiences. I grew up off and on in the desert as well. 80 miles north of Reno NV. Very rural, we rode dirt bikes,three wheelers and quads. We really had nothing else to do out there. When I was 13 I had my first boyfriend who was 16 and he had a Yamaha 400. He left it with me most of the time so I could get back and forth to see him. I rode that bike everywhere and I had no license not even for a car. My dad, uncles, cousins etc. all had Harleys. When I got older and started exploring the party scene. I met some bike clubs that were not so nice. Not all bikers are the same. I think its important to make that clear for the less seasoned bike enthusiasts who are attracted to the lifestyle and looking to make new friends.

    I wound up in places that I should never have been and saw things that no young girl should be exposed to. Somehow I always slipped out of danger but that was not the case for many people and I witnessed more than I care to admit. Looking back I think I was lucky in part because I had enough background with good bikers that I could smell bad news. Many girls my age who just wanted to party had no clue, and would walk right into harms way giggling all the while. This was in the late 70's and early 80's when many bike clubs were in the news and not for a Toy Run or Benefit Ride.

    I see so many young women getting into the biker scene and truly thinking that they are all great guys and its a good
    natured party wherever their are bikers. I feel a responsibility to warn them though. NOT ALL BIKERS ARE THE SAME!!

    Most independant bikers and even most clubs are decent folks who love god, family and freedom. But there are a selct group of bikers that are out looking to exploit the naive and truly harm them.

    My suggestion is that you get to know some in your area and ask alot of questions. If you get invited to a party or a run by someone you do not know. Ask others about that group first. Just like any other situation in your life know the people and what they are about before you trust them.

    So many new biker enthusiasts who are so eager to be part of a group that they do not always realize who they are riding next to. Some bike clubs see these people comin and are waitin to greet them in a not so genuine manner.

    For the young guys out there who just got a new bike and clubs are lookin good to you?? Make sure you pay close attention to how thay are treatin the prospects and the prospects wives. Its important and very easy to spot if you are looking for it. Pay attention to how the Independant bikers feel about the clubs you are interested in too. There are reasons that the old school bikers steer clear of some. Ask them!! Most are not afraid to tell you.

    No matter what you ride? Like any new activity or sport, there are things you need to know and educating yourself is always key to a good experience.

    Just needed to get that out there.
    Ride safe and be careful who you call brother or sister!!!

    Good(and for some, needed) advice very well spoken.

    being a biker to me is my expression. I'm doing what I feel.And like music, I feel it inside. I can't ignore it. I HAVE to ride, and I don't give a d_mned who likes it or not.When I ride it's MY dance,MY expression.
    Kudo's to you for knowing your machine so well-I want to know more about the workings of mine too, and will,...in time.

    Being a biker to me is getting that excited feeling in my gut when I swing my leg over my scoot. Hitting that starter button as the anticipation builds knowing in just a few minutes I am going to be in the wind. Asking God to watch over my ride...putting it into first...letting out the clutch and vaaarrrooooom..I'm in the wind. Smiling and being thankful that I am so blessed to appreciate the ride.
