20. The two most useless things to a rider are the braking distance
behind you and nine-tenth of a second ago.

19. Remember, gravity and centrifugal force are not just a good
ideas. They're laws and are not subject to appeal.

18. Keep looking around. There's always something you've missed.

17. Good judgment comes from experience. Unfortunately, the
experience usually comes from bad judgment.

16. In the ongoing battle between objects made of metal, rubber and
fibreglass going 100+ miles per hour and the ground going zero miles
per hour, the ground has yet to lose. Same holds for cars, large
trucks, and animals taller than you. Draws don't count.

15. If all you can see in your mirrors is sparks and all you can
hear is screaming from your passenger, things may not be as they
should be.

14. You start with a bag full of luck and an empty bag of
experience. The trick is to fill the bag of experience before you
empty the bag of luck.

13. There are two simple rules for riding smoothly and fast in snow
and on ice. Unfortunately no one knows what they are.

12. Always try to keep the number of times you put your sidestand
down equal to the number of times you put the sidestand up.

11. Never let a motorcycle take you somewhere your brain didn't get
to three seconds earlier.

10. You know you've left the sidestand down when all left turn are
Bat-turns. You know you've left the centerstand down when your in
1st gear at 4000 rpm going nowhere.

9. Learn from the mistakes of others. You won't live long enough to
make all of them yourself.

8. When in doubt slow down. No one has ever hit something too slow.

7. The rear wheel is just a big fan on back of the bike used to keep
the rider cool and his/her butt relaxed. If going into a corner too
fast, slamming on the rear brake causes the "fan" to abruptly stop.
When this happens you can actually see the rider start sweating and
his/her butt become tense.

6. The only time you have too much fuel is when you're on fire

5. It's always better to be on the sidelines wishing you were on the
track than on the track wishing you were on the sidelines.

4. Riding isn't dangerous. Crashing is dangerous.

3. If you push the bars left, the bike goes left. If you push the
bars right, the bike goes right. That is, unless you continue
pushing the bars all the way, then the bike will go down.

2. Every ride is optional

1. A 'good' ride is one from which you can walk away. A 'great' ride
is one after which you can use the bike again
