    Life is too short to buy PVC jackets.

    Life is too short to own cheap shoes.

    Life is too short to do things twice.

    Whinging over traffic offences when you were at fault (we've probably all done it too)
    Driving a car through nice roads when you could be on a bike
    Complaining about bad weather
    Not standing up for what you believe in
    Reading crappy magazines
    Not enjoying good weather (especially if you've been complaining about the bad weather!)
    Hanging out with people you don't like
    Being pretentious
    Wearing a tie
    Wearing heels that hurt
    Arguing with idiots
    Not taking a few "sickies" every now and then and going to somewhere like the beach
    Working at a job you intensely dislike (no matter how good the money - it's not worth it!)
    Not finishing the things important to you
    Wearing poor quality motorbike gear
    Being nasty to others
    Never telling your loved ones how you feel
    Being stressed
