A while back, I polled this site and assembled these sayings--Now its time to share them.

Motorcycle Sayings

"My Bike is a gift from our Children, purchased with money they will not inherit"
"If you can read this, the bitch fell off” (Usually seen on a Harley T-shirt).
"If you see this bike on a trailer, it is being STOLEN!"
"Skillful riding is as much a matter of developing good judgment as good technique"
Only a Motorcyclist knows why a dog rides with his head out the car window
And on a Girl's T-shirt. "Does this bike make my butt look too Fast?"
On cornering technique: "In soft, out hard." Hmmm.
You don't stop riding because you get old; you get old because you stop riding.
T shirt many years ago in Daytona: "If you don't own a Harley, you ain't shit" - My question: If you own one, you are?
Back of a T-shirt: "All I remember was ground sky ground sky ground sky MEDIVAC."
The three position Lucas switch - Dim, Flicker and Off
"Burn rubber, not your Soul"
"98% of all Harleys ever sold are still on the road. The other 2% made it home."
"Have you ever noticed there are never any motorcycles parked in front of a psychiatric office?"
Bikes don't stand alone; they're two tired.—Argh!
Ride a Harley
Ride the best
Ride a mile
Walk the rest

"And as I shifted into 6th.........I couldn't remember a word she said"
'The older I get the faster I was' (funny and true)
"ATGATT, because sweat dries faster than skin heals"
"Gear, because walking away in disgust is better than riding away in an ambulance"
T-shirt seen at Bike Week in Daytona "I rode my bike to Trailer Week"
"...Loctite -- or kiss your nuts goodbye..."
"I was riding real good, right up until I crashed."
"You don't know how fast you can go till you crash"
Again, return to those thrilling days of yesteryear, when Indian and Harley Davidson were locked in sales struggles; this was the Indian rider's rhyme:
Harley Davidson, made of tin
Ride'em out, push'em in.
I remember a old BMW T shirt that read; "It's hard to be humble when you ride the best!"
Another one that read; "I didn't know BMW made cars until I passed them!"
If Harley Davidson made an airplane would you fly in it?
The louder the bike the smaller the penis.
"The shortest distance between two points is for people that don't ride".
"I'd rather push my Harley than ride a rice burner any day"
"Motorcycling is not, of itself, inherently dangerous. It is, however, extremely unforgiving of inattention, ignorance, incompetence, or stupidity."
"In the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years."
Four wheels can move your body but two wheels will move your soul..
Riding a motorcycle vs driving a car is like the difference between watching a sporting event on TV and playing in the game.
The road to enlightenment is better on a motorcycle.
The difference between take a cage and riding a motorcycle is the same as watching the world go by and being a part of the world.
The cheapest part on a BMW is the rider.
"Asphalt. The World's Fastest Tattoo Remover."
Every motorcycle will out-perform its rider.
The part of the motorcycle that needs improvement most is the nut that connects the handlebar to the seat.
You don't stop riding because you get old. You get old because you stop riding.
When in doubt, gas it - it will solve the problem or end the suspense.
One of the former owners of BMW Daytona had shirts printed up that read:
FRONT: Show me your big twins BACK: And I'll show you my boxers
"Faster, faster, faster, until the thrill of speed overcomes the fear of death..."
When life throws you a curve, lean into it
Motorcycles take me places inaccessible by other means.
You never see a motorcycle parked in front of a psychiatrist’s office.
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intentions of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body. But rather to slide in sideways, thoroughly used up, totally worn out and loudly proclaiming....WOW WHAT A RIDE!!
When you come upon a road or trail you do not know, follow it to the point of knowing.
"Everything is okay in the end, if it's not ok, then it's not the end."
Sometimes it's a little better to travel than to arrive - Zen & the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance
"Three quarters of my wages went on beer, motorcycles and women, the rest I squandered"

I'm sure it's doable if someone wanted to spend the money. I once worked for Genentech and when our first drug was approved they gave out tee shirts that had all of the employees' names printed on them. I think that was about 1700 at the time.

And you look like you'd be big enough to do just that. Me, I'm kinda' a little guy. I'm glad you like them; I had the first one engraved on a small plastic plaque that I velchro'd to my bike. Get's lots of laughs, even from non-bikers.

Why do Europeans drink warm beer? Because Lucas made there refrigerators.

Riding faster than everyone else only guarantees you'll ride alone.

A bike on the road is worth two in the shed.

Four wheels move the body. Two wheels move the soul.

Sometimes it takes a whole tankful of fuel before you can think straight.

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

Keep your bike in good repair: Motorcycle boots are NOT comfortable
for walking.

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

Gray-haired riders don't get that way from pure luck.

There are drunk riders. There are old riders. There are NO old, drunk riders.

You can forget what you do for a living when your knees are in the breeze.

It is good to have an end to journey towards; but it is the journey that
matters in the end.

Don't argue with an 18-wheeler.

I haul ass, not bikes

Remember when sex was safe and motorcycles were dangerous?

there are only two kinds of motorcyclists: those that have fallen off and those who will.

Got a $5 head, wear a $5 helmet

Some people confuse breathing in and out with living!

If you think you don't need a helmet, you probably don't

I'm not a total idiot, there are a few parts missing

Why do I ride? Because football, basketball and baseball only require one ball.

If she would let me ride her as much as my motorcycle does...I'd be home now
