I know the obvious answer is YES
but for real, read this please...
I'm pushing 47 years old now and still ride it like I stole it.
There is a rash of people in my area I know or acquainted with
that have gotten rid of their of their bikes for one reason or another.
Most, have had a close call or gotten plain scared.
I was at the saw bones and he knows I am a rider and knows my medical history.
And he tells me,"You know you are a statistic right"?
I'm like WTF doc, I know you guys call us riders organ donors,
don't bust my balls K.
He says NO, I mean you are 46 years old, and have survived countless dirt bike crashes,
A triple digit into a guardrail, and a triple digit wheelie unscheduled get off (My wording).
And many close calls (I added).
And yet, you still ride and your still here.
You are a statistic, there aren't many like you and still living.
Most have 1 crash and are done with riding, but not you.
What is it about you that keeps you getting back on a bike after crashing??
I would like to know.
I was like WOW
I had to stop and think. (Hurt myself doing so
I said, I don't really know doc, after each unscheduled get off.
And getting home from the hospital,
THE very first thing I would do is,
Jump right back on one of my other bikes, do a wheelie and blaze.
Bandages and all.
I never thought to be scared. Seriously
Now I'm no freakin superman, (Although I sometimes joke and say I am)
Nor do I claim to be some hardass.
But just what is it that makes me have no fear of getting right back on that horse??
I mean really, why do I get pissed at myself for fucking up,
and not get scared to get back on.
Do I have that "Don't give a fuck affliction"??
I'm not saying I don't have any fear or don't scare the bejeezus outta myself sometimes.
Cause I've had some REAL butt clenching moments that I've had to stop and be like,
HOLY SHIT, did that just happen??? WHEEEWWW
But yet, I'm scared to death of my wife getting hurt or worse.
Hell, even friends or acquaintances
So what is it about me that makes me to stupid to quit ???
Cause I flatly fucking refuse to give up riding,
much less riding WFO & triple digit wheelies.
Not trying to be funny here fella's, I'm serious.
Hence the title of the thread.
So how about some serious answers here MM Kay.
