Biker Sayings Bikes don’t leak oil, they mark their territory. It doesn’t take muscle to ride, but it takes grace to ride well. The number of kicks it takes to start your bike is directly proportional to the number of spectators. Riding faster than everyone else only guarantees you’ll ride alone. If you don’t ride in the rain, you don’t ride. Advice is free and worth every cent. Sometimes the fastest way to get there is to stop for the night. Keep your bike in good repair; motorcycle boots are not comfortable for walking. More races are won at the bar than on the track. Well-trained reflexes are quicker than luck. If you really want to know what’s going on, watch what’s happening at least five cars ahead. If you want to get somewhere before sundown, you can’t stop at every tavern. Some bikes run on 99-octane ego. Never be ashamed to unlearn an old habit. If you can’t get it going with bungie cords and duct tape, it’s serious. If you ride like there’s no tomorrow – there won’t be. There are drunk riders, there are old riders. There are no old, drunk riders. Always replace the cheapest part first. No matter what make you ride, it’s all the same wind. Thin leather looks good, but it won’t save you from gravel rash if you go down.
