Awesome post sweetie, and SO true.... I've met many a biker in my day, and most of them have hearts of gold!

Apr 25 @ 8:48AM  

That was truly great.

And thank you Crissy.... Yes I ride.
And I'm not to bad a guy for a Biker.

I remember like it was yesterday when the local church was trying to build a new building and we raised $6,000.00 on a weekend run, they turned it down. Then a few weeks later the pastor asked for our help in raising the walls. Our money was evil but not the hands that raised it??? Many see only the black leather and hear the roar of the engines, few see the kind hearts and good deeds.

Apr 25 @ 9:05AM  
Yes, that was incredible! I have quite a few biker friends and some of them have the biggest hearts around! Thanks for this!

Apr 25 @ 9:07AM  
I was just rideing my dwg the other day cigarette but hit me in the face.Very good

Apr 25 @ 9:12AM  
BRAVO, Lisa! Isn't it a trip to be misread?? People ASSUME that they know you, but have never taken the time to even find out! Our town has a club of over 200 bikers who dress up like Santas at Christmas and have the Biker Toy Drive every year. It's a sight to behold! 200 Santas with Mrs Santas on the backs of the bikes!

I've always loved Harley's and thought this was perfect. People are so fuckin judgemental and go by looks instead of what a person is inside. Thanks All!!

Apr 25 @ 9:47AM  
good people on a bike

Apr 25 @ 9:49AM  
You know... there are 2 different sets of people other than myself that my children KNOW that they can go to if they need help in an emergency...

I have taught them from the time that they were tiny that if they needed help they were to go to the police... and that if they can't FIND a cop they are to look around for a biker. The average biker isn't going to harm a child and will go out of their way to ensure the safety of a child.

Of course I have also known enough Hells Angels so that I know to my soul that IF my children were in trouble there would be a boatload of bikers show up on my doorstep to help with just a single phone call.

From a long time rider...Hear Hear!!!

Allow me to add one of my favorite sayings:

"When we do one remembers,
When we do wrong, no one forgets."

A short tale...may the Powers that be strike me stone cold dead if I lie in the least...

About a month ago, I was at a leather/goth nightclub with a friend. I was in full leather regalia and he was goth, which he has hair halfway to his waist. We were in the farthest corner just minding our business and watching the dance floor. Another couple came in about halfway into the night and sat near us. Next couple of hours involved them stealing glance and making not so hidden gestures in our direction and towards others who looked similar and obviously making sport. (They were college age, dressed preppy style and most likely out on their folks good money to play lookit,lookit,lookit....)

Well, he became obviously drunk and she gathered him up and they left. A couple minutes later, my Bro noticed a wallet on the seat next to us, so he slid it over next to his leg. He thumbed open the edge just for a curious look and got wide eyed...then told me it was STUFFED with 100 dollar bills. Now, it's important to note that lately I can't make ends email each other, let alone meet, and my Bro is on the verge of losing his house due to finances. However, after exchanging knowing glances, he simply left it next to his leg. About an hour later the couple comes back in, all freaked out. Before they could even ask anything, he immediately stood up and presented it to them with a flourish. The girl AND the guy gave him a hug and a word of thanks then left again. Talking later my Bro said that should they not have come in, he would have then and only then looked fully in it to try to find a number to return it, as I well knew anyway.

DAMN, we are such EVIL bastards...

Funny thing about the word "assume."
If you break it down, it becomes ASS out of U and ME....*Wink*

He coulda bought us a beer, though.....bastard...

Apr 25 @ 10:51AM  
you are so right Dark the bastards should have bought you two a few beers!!!! Tight ass muthers

I have been riding for over twenty years and can tell you. Most of the things you mentioned in your post have happened to me on the road. I pray for the families that have lost loved ones to drivers that are not paying attention and hope that all of the bikers out there are alert. You never know when something like that is going to happen. Wishing all of the bikers out there warm sunny days and long smooth roads ahead of you. Andrew

My son in law is a biker. He is a trully wonderful, loving, caring man who puts nothing before his wife and children.--Now if anyone ever told him I brag about him, I would have to deny it-- He doesn't have long hair and doesn't wear his leather too often but a lot of his best friends do. So what!! They all love riding. They ALL deserve to be safe out there. Regardless of how big of a hurry anyone is in.....

Personally I love bikes, always have. That's part of looking forward to warm weather, hearing that rumble........

Excellent blog, Lisa. Isn't it a shame that people judge before they know anything?

Apr 25 @ 12:39PM  
That was beautiful Lisa and hit very close to home for me.
Five years ago, just a month after his graduation from college, my brother was on his way home from work riding his bike. He was cut off by a car and had to swerve to avoid another car. He got mashed up against the divider and was dragged for almost twenty feet before falling over a guardrail and landing twenty feet below.
He luckily came away with a broken thumb and some raw patches, but alive.
People in cars don't have any respect for bikers, anyone on a motorcycle, hell even a bicycle! Now with all the gadgets that are put in cars these days... It makes me angry and sad all at the same time!

30 years ago, i was feared, scourned, and ostrasized because of who i was, and, who i am. i was imfamous! today, they all want to be me...........

Apr 25 @ 2:18PM  
excellent blog, Lisa!!! May is Motorcycle Awareness Month, so let's support it and help keep our friends and loved ones safe!

Apr 25 @ 2:19PM  
the truth be told Wilryde!

Apr 25 @ 6:21PM  
Great blog! I've had several of my friends badly injured or killed by drivers that weren't watching out for them. Some of my very best friends are bikers. I no longer ride least, not right now.

Apr 29 @ 7:52PM  
How true...
Lost a husband because someone did not see his bike.
Lost my biker 'brother" the same way..


Apr 29 @ 10:12PM  
I like this post alot because i can relate.. my uncle a few years back got into a motorcycle accident because of some jerk that wouldnt let him over his bike hit gravel rode and he flew off of it and landed on the guard rail which he promply rode for a while which tore him in half, he lost a knee and died 26 times on the way to the hosptial from loss of blood.. luckily he pulled through but he has alot of problems now since the accident.. it was a hard time for my family to go through that.
