Food for thought

“Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, no money left, cigar in one hand, favourite beer in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out,and screaming,
‘WOW… What a ride!’”

I might get this on my head stone when i kick the bucket.

Paul, it appears that the Rolling Stones are living that to the letter! There is nothing attractive or well preserved about any of them!

They also have the funds to live the lifestyle though.


You dont need the plush dosh to live the plush life style Tony.
I consider myself a ‘budget rider’ spending as little as possible to keep the bike running, but i still get out there and enjoy it.

unfortunately sometime, i am taking the sideways aprouch too literal when on a bike. ;D

& isn’t the world a duller place without Hunter S Thompson? :’(

Yeah, it sure is. I read his Hells Angels book when I was a teenager, it certainly changed my view of “Bikie Gangs” as opposed to motorcyclists. I think I realized at the time that I could never do some of the things these grubs took for granted, must have been my upbringing I suppose.
