    You break your foot on a demo ride, and you still spend the rest of the day walking around the international motorcycle show. Yep, did that in 2008, had to wear the special boot for two months afterward. It was totally worth it.

    you're worried about your weight not for health but just to keep yourself closer to spring rates.

    I have used a tank bag as carry-on luggage.

    Your law school writing requirement was fulfilled by writing an 80 page analysis on the regulations covering OHV trails.

    Any time you hike with your girlfriend you can only think about what lines you would pick if you were riding instead of hiking.

    Replace?

    You do know the “n + 1” rule, right?

    I'm pretty strict with myself about not eating just "for fun." Whenever asked "You're not eating?" I answer "Can't. I'm on a motorcycle diet."

    I bungeed the driveshaft to my S-10 to the side of my TW200 and rode to the repair shop because I couldn’t get the buggered u joint out, and was out of patience.

    I’ve also bunjeed a Walmart bookcase to the sissy bar of my chopper back when I was just out of college. And a big potted plant too. Sissy bars may be out of style these days, but they’re FAR more useful than a rack IMO. :)

    Harley guys still use them sometimes. I'll probably get a removable one with a back pad for my wife on my next bike. Also, makes it easier to carry bike parts!

    Nah, I just bought an XL jacket instead.

    How can I be an XL at 175 pounds & 5 foot 6? Asian sizing?

    ... you get this sentence to translate in Duolingo (language learning app) "Uno de mis colegas tiene dos motocicletas nuevas" and your first thought is "I wonder if they have pictures".

    You are driving the cage along the x-way because its a family event or some other reason that you are forced into the cage. You are bored out of your mind and fondly gaze at the roadside ditches, the 2-track for the fence line service vehicles, gullies, stream crossings etc and wonder how much trouble you might have to endure if the next time you pass the same way on a bike and prefer to ride the ditch?

    I would rather ride my motorcycle and think about God than sit in church and think about my motorcycle.

    I have caught myself, while walking through parking lots, trying to check my mirrors instead of turning my head.
