A mechanic was removing a cylinder-head from the motor of a Harley motorcycle when he spotted a well-known cardiologist in his shop. 
The cardiologist was there waiting for the service manager to come take a look at his bike when the mechanic shouted across the garage "Hey Doc, want to take a look at this?"

The cardiologist, a bit surprised, walked over to where the mechanic was working on the motorcycle. The mechanic straightened up, wiped his ha nds on a rag and said, "So Doc, look at this engine. I open its heart, take the valves out, repair any damage, and then put them back in, and when I finish, it works just like new.

So how come I make $39,675 a year, a pretty small salary and you get the really big bucks ($1,695,759) when you and I are doing basically the same work?"

The cardiologist paused, smiled and leaned over, then whispered to the mechanic................................ 
"Try doing it with the engine running."

I don't ride to be a badass. 
I already am one. 

I don't ride to impress people.
I do that naturally.
I don't ride to pick up chicks or dudes.
That happens on its own (and btw, guys are always way more intrigued with the bike).
I don't ride to scream "I'm not scared of life."
I'm already terrified of life.
I don't ride to be a rebel.
I was born one.
I ride for ME.
I ride for my sanity.
I ride for fresh air.
I ride to experience life on a different level.
I ride to get away from cell phones, TV, & the Internet.
I ride to meet people.
I ride to meet life.
I ride because it's an adventure.
I ride because every time I finish a route, however long or short, I have accomplished something.
I ride because my freedom is on the open road, not knowing what I'll encounter or how I will deal with it.
I ride because the road is part of me.
I ride because I'm free to dream about anything I want.
I ride to conquer my soul.
I ride to squash my depression.
I ride because it makes me genuinely smile.
I ride because I love the taste of bug guts.
I ride because I love how the weather feels (sunburns, winter burns, pouring rain).
I ride because it teaches me how to prepare for life.
Again, I ride for ME!

Richard Eames said"  Something very different. Got to do something positive for the community. Had a lot of fun. Everyone was great. The only thing that would have made this better, is if our home team would have scored more. Otherwise, the rest of you guys missed out on a lot of fun!" ( we actually WON the game-Will)

Cool temps with little sun and open roads. We had a large excellent group that road like a well oiled machine. The CF Chapter met us there with some of our Brothers and a sister from that chapter. It was great to meet the new CF Knights and to see Stogie and Bigwheel again.

Neal Alvanos said "Remind me never to take Route 27 again; light after light. The ride home was much nicer on mostly county roads. The food at Marsh Landing was excellent. We even had a private room. It was great meeting up with the Palm Beach Knights, who came out in force. We welcome James (Scott's guest) on his first ride with the Central Florida Knights and hope you'll become our newest member."

Scott said"Great weather, great lunch! Awesome ride!

Steve Rydell said "Another great ride today. Good to see Scott again and great to meet James on today's ride to Fellsmere. Nice to see Bobbie on today's ride also. A little windy today,but not that bad! It turned out to be a great day and meeting up with the brothers of the Palm Beach Knights is always a good thing!
