I saw you pull your child closer when we passed each other on the sidewalk.
But you didnít see me playing Santa at the local mall.

I saw you change your mind about going into the restaurant.
But you didnít see me attending a meeting to raise more money for the flood relief.

I saw you roll up your window and shake your head when I drove by.
But you didnít see me driving behind you when you flicked your cigarette butt out the car window.

I saw you frown at me when I smiled at your children.
But you didnít see me when I took time off from work to run toys to the less fortunate.

I saw you stare at my long hair.
But you didnít see me and my friends cut them off for Cancer awareness.

I saw you roll your eyes at our leather jackets and jeans.
But you didnít see me and my brothers donate clothes to those that had none.

I saw you look in fright at my tattoos.
But you didnít see me cry as my children were born and their names written in my heart.

I saw you change lanes while rushing off to go somewhere.
But you didnít see me going home to be with my family.

I saw you complain about how loud and noisy our bikes are.
But you didnít see me when you were changing the CD and drifted into my lane.

I saw you yelling at your kids in the car.
But you didnít see me pat my childís leg, knowing he was safe behind me.

I saw you texting on your phone as you drove down the road.
But you didnít see me squeeze my wifeís leg when she told me to take the next turn.

I saw you race down the road in the rain.
But you didnít see me get soaked to the skin so my son could have the car to go on his date.

I saw you run the yellow light just to save a few minutes of time.
But you didnít see me trying to turn right.

I saw you cut me off because you needed to be in the lane I was in.
But you didnít see me run off the road.

I saw you waiting impatiently for my friends to pass.
But you didnít see me. I wasnít there.

I saw you go home to your family.
But you didnít see me. Because I died that day you cut me off.

I was just a biker. A person with friends and a family.
But, you didnít see me.
"all your base are belong to us!!!"

That is why I fitted 3600 Lumen spots. Now I sell them...
BoosterPlug, LED Spots, Tool Tubes, RustStop, Kappa Screens, Top boxes, Tank Bags, ATG Gear - whatever works for me.
