|Personal Quote:||West Philadelphia, I was born and raised. on the playground is where i spent most of my days.
if its fast and cheap, it ain't good.
if its cheap and good, it ain't fast.
if its good and fast, it ain't cheap.
i may be wrong. i've been wrong before and, unless i'm wrong; i'm sure i'll be wrong again.
i like to ride so much because windnoise completely drowns-out all the voices in my head.
never take me seriously... EVER.
i used to be indecisive, but i'm not so sure anymore.
motorcycling is not "dangerous". It is a calculated risk.
Catching a yellow jacket in your shirt at 70 mph can double your vocabulary.
i'd rather not tip-toe thru life just so i can arrive safely at death.
get it in when you can cuz nobody gets out alive.
