The Curmudgeon's Corner - Vol. 2

Volume 2

Now that it's springtime and bikes are coming out of hibernation, I'd like to post a couple of simple reminders:

* We are not part of some mythic 2-wheeled brotherhood.

* I don't share some cosmic bond with you just because we both ride.

* I don't need validiation from you as a fellow rider, and you damn sure don't need mine.

So here's what I propose...let's nip this "Wave" crap in the bud...

Keep your hands on the phocking bars, your eyes on the road, and focus on the satisfaction you get from the wind in your face rather than the approval of some other asshole you don't even know....

I recommend you jump your shorts one size, something seems to be binding.
