  1. How many of these apply to you?

    1. I have gone riding when I was depressed, or to cheer myself up.

    2. I have gone on riding binges of several tanks of gas or more in a day.

    3. I ride rapidly, often 'gulping' roads.

    4. I have sometimes ridden early in the morning or before work.

    5. I have hidden bikes in different places to sneak a ride in without being seen.

    6. Sometimes I avoid friends or family obligations in order to ride motorcycles.

    7. Sometimes I find myself analyzing sections of roads as if I was riding even while in cars.

    8. I am unable to enjoy myself with others unless there is a bike nearby.

    9. At a boring party, I will often slip off unnoticed to go riding.

    10. Riding has made me seek haunts and companions which I would otherwise avoid.

    11. I have neglected personal hygiene or household chores until I have finished a ride.

    12. I have spent money meant for necessities on accessories instead.

    13. I have attempted to complete an Iron Butt ride.

    14. Most of my friends are heavy motorcycle riders.

    15. I have sometimes passed out from a night of heavy riding.

    16. I have suffered 'blackouts' or memory loss from a bout of riding.

    17. I have wept, become angry or irrational because of a road I have ridden.



    18. I have sometimes wished I did not ride so much.

    19. Sometimes I think my riding is out of control.

    If you answered 'yes' to three or more of these questions, you may be a motorcycle addict. Affirmative responses to five or more indicates a serious problem.

  8. It originally relates to sex. "Dipping ya wick" is slang for a guy getting sex, dipping out is missing out on said dipping and as roger states (without the origin ;) ) as above :grin:
