    I have caught myself humming gearshifts leading into and as I lean around corners while walking.

    Just another reason I wear headphones while walking around campus at work.

    I bought a DRZ400S for cheap fun. And I have spent over $3000 on farkles including SM wheels to make it the way I want. WTF is wrong with me?

    You might be addicted to motorcycles if you have way more pictures of motorcycles on your phone than you do of your kids (or pets).

    I'm in the car on a trip because the wife didn't want to take the bike.
    I see a bike far ahead heading the same way.
    I just have to floor the throttle and pass any other cars in front of me to catch up and see what kind of bike it is.

    When you tell your wife that you are going to sell the motorcycle and she screams "NO" 'cos she's worried you'll talk all day every day about motorcycles till you replace it.

    Hahaha

    That’s what my 88 year old mother said.

    Me, “Mom, I have always ridden motorcycles”

    Her, “but I thought that was just a ‘kid thing’”
