If there is any irony left in this world heÂ’ll be killed in a car wreck when he accidentally runs a red light and gets T-Boned by a semi transporting Harleys.

It'll be a miserable day when I am too old and feeble to ride a motorcycle. Until then, I ride to live. On a brighter note, I spent the day taking a young lady around to the dealers in town shopping for her first motorbike. She has the Sickness real bad. Rejoice everyone, another GearHead was born today. And she's a cutie to boot.



peace,



CDM

Good point. However, it appears this guy quit riding purely because of a negative outlook toward life, rather than as a result of someone losing his/her ablity to ride safely. I agree that many people perhaps ought to stop driving their car or riding their motorcycle due to health reasons or something similar.



What I object to is this fellow's portrayal of motorcycling as something dismal and dark, when I know damn well the opposite is true. That article plays into the hands of those people out there that don't understand motorcycling and think that people who ride have a "death wish." I strenuously object to that idea! Motorcyclists have a "life wish!" They're living life to the fullest.

I believe OCD is a "condition" not a "disease".

Do not go gentle into that good night,

Old age should burn and rave at close of day;

Rage, rage against the dying of the light.



Though wise men at their end know dark is right,

Because their words had forked no lightning they

Do not go gentle into that good night.



Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright

Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,

Rage, rage against the dying of the light.



Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,

And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,

Do not go gentle into that good night.



Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight

Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,

Rage, rage against the dying of the light.



And you, my father, there on the sad height,

Curse, bless me now with your fierce tears, I pray.

Do not go gentle into that good night.

Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
