    Some of y'all sound like you've crossed a line somewhere.



    Memories aren't made in the garage. It's a pice of steel, not a Ming dynasty vase. Ride the damn thing, you can't take it to your grave with you, and no, a speck of rust won't turn it into a pile of dust and destroy it's resale value.

    And while you're at it, stop worrying about resale value. Ride the damn bike.

    Hmm.. If I don't pat and hug my car telling it how much I love it, does it mean driving a car isn't for me, or is it a tool that gets me to where I want to go?

    They are definitely things that are nice to have, don't know about talking to inanimate objects though. Disclaimer: I do pat my bike's gas tank from time to time during times of long storage, but only if I happen to be walking by it.

    With these temps out right now (Dec 20th- 4c Toronto) people with garages should be out riding. I agree with PrivatePilot post- love the part of the Ming Dynasty comment and turning into a pile of rust.

    I love both my bikes but hey I ride them hard and don't worry about them rusting out.... I want it to die of overriding and being banged around the road before I do.

    People with garages should not be putting away their bikes till there is 20' of snow out there, even then on a above 4c day with cleared roads should be ready to ride that *****.

    Reminds me of the quote about guys who polish their bikes more than riding them....

    I love my wife, my kids and my dog.

    I love my bikes to, but more like the way Donald loves Stormy.

    Not to get all metaphysical on you, but you think of your bike as you would a ratchet in your tool box? (Nothing against ratchets, I even have my own favorite). You've never had a vehicle that was exceptionally good to you, never let you down and made you shed an internal tear when it was time to let go of? I believe your energy goes into anything you love and it gives you that love and energy back...and the opposite is also true. One of those vehicles that "never quite felt right"...and you were glad to see it go down the road. I wonder if quantum physics could show your energy particles in your beloved motorcycle. Just because you can't see it, doesn't mean it's not there.
