The Church of the One True Road

Discussion in 'Jokes and Humour' at netrider.net.au started by v_quixotic, Jun 21, 2005.

  1. The Church of the One True Road

    Dost thou yearn to belong to a group that understands and validates thy need for speed?

    Hast thou undergone countless trials and tribulations in thy quest for enlightenment?

    Hast thou endured a court appearance for riding with excess speed?

    Hast thy body born witness, through abrasion and fractures of the bones, to thy holy conviction to go fast?

    Dost thou believe that speed is a holy calling?

    Dost thou assert those that seek to prevent thee, and punish thee, and persecute thee in thy quest are in league with The Devil and The Forces of Evil?

    Rejoice for thy salvation is at hand. The Church of the One True Road is here!

    1. Thou shalt not adulterate thy riding by choosing a scooter or cruiser or full-dresser or any other form of two-wheel abomination lest it be highly modified.
    2. Thou shalt maximise thy ride’s power output and handling.
    3. Thou shalt not lecture thy brothers and sisters on safety and the need to ride responsibly as these are paths to the Dark Side.
    4. Thou shalt not back off when ‘it’s on!’
    5. Thou shalt not purchase sports – touring tyres.
    6. Thou shalt not stay home because...
    7. Thou shalt not covet decent pillion accommodation, fuel efficiency or a shaft drive.
    8. Thou shalt not condemn a brother or sister who shoves it up the inside.
    9. Thou shalt honour thy rev limiter by using it.
    10. Thou shalt not bear false witness by concocting a poxy excuse when accosted by the Forces of Evil.


    If thou can follow these ten commandments and testify in writing to thy worthiness then thee too canst be an acolyte of the Church of the One True Road and Receive thy holy name and membership number.

    Amen.

    St Simon the Scurrilous COTR#1

  6. First of all, since I am 56 years old, a little less of the "my son" stuff, St Simon!
    I'm afraid I can't meet the membership requirement of having been to court for two-wheeled misdemeanours; although I've pushed the envelope many times, I've always been fortunate enough for it to be away from the prying eyes of the boys in blue.
    But I do whole-heartedly agree with the creed and philosophy of the gathering, and wish a thousand blessings upon it (although, from a theological point of view, I think you might have a few problems in the hereafter!)

  7. Blessed are those who worship in private for they shall inherit the roads.

  8. I appreciate your indulgence, St Simon, and I shall observe your evangelistic efforts with great interest. I shall be especially interested in how many OFARCs are converted!

  12. And, if I may assist St Simon in his holy quest, since the premise of the brotherhood is to go fast, then surely some bikes and their riders (by definition) may not qualify?

  13. Do not abandon our Harley riding bretheren for they are but lost sheep.

    Pray for them my children, that they may see the light and in their quest to go fast and join the chosen ones buy Buells.
