Ride and Have Fun!

Not long ago I posted a joke about a man who seemed very upset to his wife. She thought something was seriously wrong with their relationship. She thought that he might be angry at her, having an affair or just didn’t love her anymore. In the end the man was just upset because his Harley Davidson motorcycle would not start that morning. In the big scheme of life a motorcycle mechanical problem should not be a big deal, but it is difficult for us to remember this because we are so passionate about riding.

To most of us, motorcycling should be just about fun. If you belong to an MC or made motorcycle riding your profession, than motorcycling will take on a bigger role in your life than those of us who are in it purely for pleasure. For those of you out there who are members of HOG chapters or lone riders… remember this: Ride & Have Fun! That’s what it’s all about; it’s that simple. There are too many other things in life that cause stress, riding shouldn’t be one of them!

I have recently taken on the position of Director for First State HOG. At this early stage of my Directorship I believe the single most important thing is the HOG creed: Ride & Have Fun! It’s easy to get caught up in the politics of he said, she said and territorial disputes over who is supposed to do what. As a blogger it can be tempting be baited into an online argument with a rude commenter. It is also easy to get caught up in the online argument of who is a biker and who isn’t. Most bikers are big into the concept of respect. To some, reputation is everything. We have big ego’s and a little thing can come across to another as a manner of disrespect. A small disrespect can easily evolve into a full out war. In all these cases, please remember: Ride & Have Fun! It’s that simple.

Well there you have it, my new religion: Ride & Have Fun!

Please feel free to comment, but don’t disrespect me or I will delete your comment and go about my business of Riding and Having Fun.
