    a thought on bike ownership

    Post  kiawrench on Fri Jul 10, 2009 11:05 pm

    "owning a bike is quite similar to making love to porcupine--- if you know what you are doing ,it is fun,, if you dont ,,, there are going to be a lot of points that need working out ." quoted: Frank Caspian, AKA " papa blue"
    Vindicator Cycle Jewelry Co. MBSC 29577

    that just sounded so strange i just had to share it with you guys !

    oh- he got name "poppy blue" due to blue tint to his skin in some places caused by silver poisoning . Esp his face ,neck dave the doc can explain that to anyone that wonders how that happens. he isnt as blue as guy on msnbc news ,, but it is blue enough to see it in sunlight

    Owning a motorcycle is as close to flying on land as one can get. It is like connection to the earth at high speed. (well high speed is relative) The connection, the forces, the machine response, and the danger is all about the experince of riding.
    How about flying through the air and not dying but knowing that it could happen at any moment!!

    Well said AK. And crashing is unfortunately just a s bad if it happens. Hopefully not!

    Don't tell me I'm the only one who doesn't ride because of the thrill. I'm not into adrenaline rushes. I ride because it's nice, it's efficient, it's a nice skill to have at a good level of skill.

    Same with flying, I don't do it because it scares me, I do it because it's beautiful up there. It's a new perspective on living.
