Lyrics:
[ORIN]
When I was younger, just a bad little kid,
My mama noticed funny things I did,
Like shootin' puppies with a B B gun
I'd poison guppies, and when I was done
I'd find a pussycat and bash in its head
That's when my mama said

[CRYSTAL, RONETTE, CHIFFON]
What did she say?

[ORIN]
She said, "My boy, I think someday
You'll find a way
To make your natural tendencies pay
You'll be a dentist
You have a talent for causin' things pain
Son, be a dentist
People will pay you to be inhumane
Your temperament's wrong for the priesthood
And teaching would suit you still less
Son, be a dentist
You'll be a success

[CRYSTAL, RONETTE, CHIFFON]
Here he is, folks the leader of the plaque!
Watch him suck up that gas!
Oh, my god!
He's a dentist and he'll never ever be any good
Who wants their teeth done by the Marquis de Sade?

[PATIENT]
Oh that hurts! I'm not numb!

[ORIN]
Oh, shut up. Open wide. here I come!
I am your dentist

On the way home from school last week, in the rain, I stopped at a gas station to pick up a couple things. As I get off the DR, guy parks in a truck next to me. We walk in together, me with my helmet in hand. Thinking he was going to say something about riding in the rain, I prepare for one of those convos, not for what transpired:

Guy: What kinda helmet's that?

Me: It's a Scorpion.

Guy: Never heard of that brand, but they must be shit. You need to get an Arai or a Shoei.

Me: Haha, well, one of these saved my life a few months back, and if the day ever comes I need to learn the difference between a $300 helmet and a $700, I don't think I'll live long enough to regret my decision. (me laughing and thinking he was just poking fun but in a serious tone) Do you ride motorcycles?

Guy: Nah. I used to, but a couple years back, I high-sided an R1 at Road Atlanta doing 190 and broke both my arms. You'll never see me back on a bike again. What kinda bike do you ride?

Me: *point at the DR out the window* Suzuki DR650 today, couple Bandits at home.

Guy: Dude, you need to get yourself an R1 or an R6. If you ever do, you'll never want to ride anything else. It'll change your life.

Me: Haha, I see how that worked out for you (not trying to come off like a dick, but I must have to him since he shut up then).

I only ever seem to be judged negatively for what or how I ride by people that "conveniently" never seem to be on a bike themselves.

Oh, heck, tell him that you were going 191 on your DR when it threw you and you broke both legs but it didnt' stop you from riding.

OK, so two inmates have made comments on the poetic delivery.

Fair play.

However, I cannot help but think they're missing something...

Posting about a great night of learning experiences in a gay bar in SF in '78.

On ADVRIDER.

Now THAT'S funny!

(Not that there's anything wrong with that.)
