Before you ride.

Not to sound corny on here, does anybody here have any thing they say or do before hitting the start button and taking the bike out? I do a little prayer before I head out. Any body got a certain routine besides a gas, tire air pressure, oil check? ritual? superstition? I found this on another forum and "borrowed it to print and put on my garage wall. Just wanted to share it with you too.

thats nice.

I don't really do anything, but I do think about what could happen. And i hope it doesn't. While thinking of that, i kind of hold my breath.

I pray before I ride too. I thank for keeping me safe on all my previous rides and ask him to do it again.

Oh and no I don't do any of that... I just open the garage door, clear out of the way, turn the bike around, gear up... and go.

great prayer, I think everyone needs to pray, whatever religion you believe in. Just to be safe, to ride again another day
