I am

I live at 1 Frozen place in, Minnesota, United States
My real name is Mark. For many years now my wife has called me Mr. Motorcycle. When I started my Blog I was looking for a catchy blog name, so I went with it. I'm happily married and I'm also a father of 6 children. I have two human offspring, one dog, two cats and one custom Harley. I believe that makes 6 children. When I'm not doing my real full time job, or going for a ride, I like to do art, custom paint jobs, and of course BLOG. If you would like to contact me, my e-mail address is phonetically spelled for avoiding spammers. (I actually do use the number 1 in the beginning.) 1mrmotorcycleATgmailDOTcom

The photo above is my ride :
"Kenny" started life as a stock '97, 883 Sportster. It's been a work in progress since the day I bought it many years ago. Its mostly custom with a built, "slightly juiced up" 1200 motor.
The Metal Fabrication, bodywork and custom paint was done by me.

How the Hell did I come up with a name like Kenny for my bike you ask?...... Most people who name their rides, go with chick names. I of course had to be different. I think bikes look tough, cool and masculine; not feminine. Plus, my father "Ken" has helped make me who I am today. Therefore with a little twist on the name, my bike was named "Kenny".

"Motorcycle Wisdom"

Someone took the time to put together some great motorcycle sayings.

Some we already know, some, maybe not.


Four wheels move the body. Two wheels move the soul.

Life may begin at 30, but it doesn't get real interesting until about 70 mph.

You start the game of life with a full pot of luck and an empty pot of experience. The object is to fill the pot of experience before you empty the pot of luck.

If you wait, all that happens is that you get older.

Saddlebags can never hold everything you want, but they CAN hold everything you need.

The only good view of a thunderstorm is in your rear view mirror.

Don't ride so late into the night that you sleep through the sunrise.

Sometimes it takes a whole tank of fuel before you can think straight.

Never hesitate to ride past the last street light at the edge of town.

Never do less than forty miles before breakfast.

One bike on the road is worth two in the garage.

Young riders pick a destination and go. Old riders pick a direction and go.

Whatever it is, it's better to do it in the wind.

Two-lane blacktop isn't a highway, it's an attitude.

People are like motorcycles; each is customized a bit differently.

The best alarm clock is sunshine on chrome.

A friend is someone who'll get out of bed at 2 am to drive his pickup to the middle of nowhere to get you when you're broken down.

Catching a yellow jacket in your shirt at 70 mph can double your vocabulary.

If you want to get somewhere before sundown, you can't stop at every tavern.

There's something ugly about a NEW bike on a trailer.

A long ride can clear your mind, restore your faith and use up a lot of fuel.


If yo
u can't get it going with bungee cords, wire and electrician's tape, it's serious.

Never try to race an old geezer, he may have one more gear than you.

Bikes parked out front mean good chicken-fried steak inside.

You can forget what you do for a living when your knees are in the breeze.

Only a biker knows why a dog sticks his head out the car window.


There are two types of people in this world;

people who ride motorcycles and people who wish they could.

I totally love this! And If you can't get it going with bungee cords, wire and electrician's tape, it's serious, that's Big D's mantra!!! LOL!

words to live by!

Great post! I love 'em all, but my favorite is: "If you wait, all that happens is that you get older." Thanks for sharing!

Dean "D-Day" said...

I've seen all these before but I never tire of reading them. I even proudly post a few of these on some shirts I own. Thanx for posting them.

"All that happens if you wait is that you get older" - My vote wisdom of the week.

Thanks for the collection.

Webster World said...

That was good. No wonder my dog understands me.

Baron's Life said...

I am going to print this and post it on my wall.
It constitutes my new Bible.
Thank you

Great sayings! I love them all, but my favorite is:
"You can forget what you do for a living when your knees are in the breeze."

"Joker" said...

Outstanding. Like Dean, I've seen most of these before, but never tire of them. I definitely have to go with "If you wait, all that happens is that you get older." Says it all for me.

Only a Biker knowing why a dog puts his head out the car window is another great one.

The best thing about ALL of these though is being able to relate to them, because we all love to ride.

One Harley Rider said...

I like all of these .... I remember someones tag line on a blog or something that I liked as well. "Are we gonna F___ around all day or are we gonna ride?"

Mr. Motorcycle said...

I liked these so much, they now have a home on my side bar.

J. Perewitz said...

Hey, Those are great! Can I repost them from you on my blog? If you want to send them to my e-mail jody@perewitz.com I will give you full credit and as a guest writer. Some of those are soo good. I like the yellow jacket. I have a story with that one only it was 9 bees!

Preston said...

That was a great story about Kenny. I too have a mother named Shirley and I agree it is not a befitting name for my ride. My father passed away in 2004 and I think it would do him homage to name my Yamaha V-Star 1300 after him. From this day forward I dub my ride "Jim". Thanks for the idea.

Mr. Motorcycle said...

Preston,

Glad to hear someone else besides me and Beach think it's a good idea.

Thanks for dropping by and leaving me a comment. Stop by again will ya.

How about this one--
"when I'm out on the road, riding, it feels like heaven when my knees scrape the ground."
