Favourite motorcycle quotes

It can be anything; from safety, to joy, to spiritual, to HST.

I got this one off an Army safety brochure:

Riding a motorcycle through traffic is like being a mouse running through a herd of elephants.

I like the Steve McQueen quote on the CMRA shirt. "Racing's important to men who do it well. When you're racing, it's life. Anything that happens before or after is just waiting" LeMans, 1971, the year I was born.

Of course, Rossi's W L F patch says it all. It reminds everyone that no matter how great motorcycling can be for a man, spiritually, nothing can compare to......

W L F = V + V + L + F. In short, "Vi Va La Figa" = " Long Live "

Well said sir.

If u can read this shirt, the fell off.

I saw this one on the back of a mc trailer- if my wife let me ride her as much as I ride my motorcycle I'd be home right now.

Earnest Hemingway makes all us bike riders feel special for riding in spite of the fear of death. I "backed in" the little rental 50cc moped and left a long black skid mark as a sign of respect at his house in key west. Other cruise boat fatty tourists....not amused. Right here:
