Bikes don’t leak oil, they mark their territory!
Four wheels move the body. Two wheels move the soul
And I to my motorcycle
Parked like the soul of the junkyard
Restored, a bicycle fleshed
With power, and tore off
Up Highway 106, continually
Drunk on the wind in my mouth,
Wringing the handlebar for speed,
Wild to be wreckage forever.
~James Dickey, “Cherrylog Road”
“physical discomfort is important only when the mood is wrong. Then you fasten on to whatever thing is uncomfortable and call that the cause.”
