What is a motorcycling enthusiast?
« on: October 17, 2019, 04:53:44 pm »
Q:  What is the definition of "real true old school motorcycle enthusiasts"?  :sip:

A: They are the guys who hang around your old school British bike, peering and pointing and cheerfully making various suggestions,
     while in actual fact they also don't know why your Ariel / BSA / Triumph / Vincent / Velocette /  just won't start...!   :xxbah:
     (But they are NOT poseurs!)   :3some:

Life is far too short to be taken too seriously.
I am far too short to be taken too seriously.

Objection your honour, there's nothing 'comedy' about that.  ;)
Succumb not to the erosion of those born of unconsecrated union.

"Two Wheels, an engine and a place to sit." What more do you need?

2021 a milestone. 60 years a biker.

Riding pushing one of those  bikes is a comedy of errors, so in a way it is "comedy"  :imaposer:

I knew it had something to do with okes who like bikes even if they don't start.

Mine is only an SR500, but somedays she just pulls female on me and will not start! :peepwall:
Then just when I decide to start pulling plug or carb then she fires like nothing funny went on.
So I can understand! :patch: :patch: :thumleft: :ricky:

An old bike is like an older woman.
They need to be sheltered and appreciated, caressed and complimented whenever you are near.
Most of all at an appropriate time at least once or twice a month, they need to be well prepared...

and then ridden HARD!.
