    Faster, faster, faster, until the thrill of speed overcomes the fear of death..." - Hunter Thompson

    :D I had this line taped to my handlebars on the mountain bike back in the racing days. I used to race downhill in shorts & t-shirts, no body armour that they wear now. My theory was that I had more incentive to stay upright that way, and besides, I had put all my $$ into the bike, couldn't afford it.:s

    "I'd rather be riding my motorcycle thinking about God than sitting in church thinking about my motorcycle."

    Amen to that!

    "Sometimes the best communication happens when you're on separate bikes."

    Yup, when I don't see the hubby in my mirrors, I slow down.....:D
