1. I’m okay to ride


While most of the lies we tell ourselves as motorcyclists may lead to entertaining stories outlining our foibles as human beings, some have all-too-frequently tragic results. Riding under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs is one of those things. I hate to get all serious on you in what is intended to be a (mostly) comical look at motorcycling, but intoxicated riding kills motorcyclists. And there’s no way to be funny about it.

Riding is a way to live life more fully. To me, having a full life involves sticking around for a while to enjoy it. Oh, and the people who care about you will lead happier lives, too.
