I got a few.
The dean of the university in the movie Animal House told the boys..
"Fat drunk and stupid is no way to go thru life son." Thats good advice.

Only advice I got from my alchoholic brother...

"If you go to a party and no one offers,just help yourself." Booze killed him at 39. I was 29.Not the best advice.

Got any...

I made a new friend on my way to Vietnam, at the 90th replacement Bn. as we boarded trucks on our way to our new units I heard him call me. I looked out the back and there he was , as we pulled out he yelled “Remember lord takes care of those that don’t give a good time” never saw again.

Nope, this will be my last bike.

I've been riding Suzukis since '85. Kawasakis and Yamahas before that. Even the quad I had was a Suzuki (250 Quadracer).

Always wanted a Hayabusa ever since I first sat on one at the Toronto bike show Dec '98. Life got in the way though and I already had 3 bikes that I loved...slowly I got down to one bike and then the Hayabusa came up on the radar again. Boss lady said to go get one already and here I am a couple years later.

grin yellow - i never wanted a busa cause i had no chance to ride longer than 30 minutes without mighty pain in hands and neck
and you need a computer to messure wheel´s profile depth - damn so much electronics in there - i said.

but when i sat on the 1st busa with superbike bar
all changed even i think till today that she is ugly in every sight BUT the motor !!!!!!!
so i got my 2nd last year cause 1st was gone ....

When I was eight years old my father introduced me to his auto mechanic, i hesitated for a split second when I shook his hand as it was dirty from his job.

On the ride home my father said;

"Never refuse to shake a man's hand regardless of how dirty it is"

Wise words that have stuck with me till this day.

cheers

In oct 2016 at a sunday´s late afternoon, here in the city i left it for 2 hours next to the sidewalk and it was gone. bad luck
But I got from the insurance 10k €, because I had a value report (20 pages) about 11.2k € and this was taken over in the insurance as an addition to the contract.

the 10k were then a very pain-relieving compensation.
here we call it "glück im unglück" means "luck in misfortune".

for my new '00 (36000km), bought in mai 2018, I also got a value report - worth now : 12.5k €
and
as a "smart boy" ;) the time between buy and report was only around 4 weeks ;-)
and
that value report also was taken over in the insurance .

the only tiny snag is that i have to renew the value report every 2 years and submit this new one then again to the insurance company .
costs for that renewing report only arround 50 € - so what ;-)
