Les lois de la moto
En Anglais, dsl
1. Every ride off is optional. Every parking job is mandatory.
2. If you push the bars left, the bike goes right. If you push the bars right, the bike goes left. That is, unless you keep pushing the bars all the way right, then the bike will go right unless it goes down before all 270 degrees.
3. Riding isn't dangerous. Crashing is what's dangerous.
4. It's always better to be on the sidelines wishing you were on the track than on the track wishing you were on the sidelines.
5. The ONLY time you have too much fuel is when you're on fire.
6. The rear wheel is just a big fan in back of the bike used to keep the rider cool and his butt relaxed. When it goes out of line, you can actually see the rider start sweating and pucker LOLs left on the seat.
7. When in doubt, brake. No one has ever hit something too slow.
8. A 'good' ride is one from which you can walk away. A 'great' ride is one after which you can use the bike again.
9. Learn from the mistakes of others. You won't live long enough to make all of them yourself.
10. You know you've left the side stand down when all left turn are Bat-turns. You know you've left the center stand down when you’re in 1st gear at 4000 rpm going nowhere.
11. When traction is sparse, the probability of survival is inversely proportional to the angle of lean. Large angle of lean, small probability of survival and vice versa.
12. Never let a motorcycle take you somewhere your brain didn't get to five minutes earlier.
13. Stay out of fog, The single red taillight you think is another rider ahead that you can catch, might be the red starboard light of a docked boat. Reliable sources also report that deer, cars and slick roads have been known to hide out in fog.
14. Always try to keep the number of parkings you make equal to the number of ride offs you've LOLe.
15. There are three simple rules for riding smoothly and fast off road, in snow and on ice. Unfortunately no one knows what they are.
16. You start with a bag full of luck and an empty bag of experience. The trick is to fill the bag of experience before you empty the bag of luck.
17. Cars can't make turns; they're just so heavy the road doesn't have enough strength to throw them off, but it tries, watch.
18. If all you can see in your mirrors is the direction you were previously traveling intermingled with sparks and all you can hear is commotion coming from the passenger riding pillion, things are not at all as they should be.
19. In the ongoing battle between objects LOLe of metal, rubber and fiberglass going dozens of miles per hour and the ground going zero miles per hour, the ground has yet to lose. Same holds for cars, trucks, walls and animals taller that you. Draws don't count.
20. Good judgment comes from experience. Unfortunately, the experience usually comes from bad judgment.
21. It's always a good idea to keep the headlight end going forward as much as possible.
22. Keep looking around. There's always something you've missed.
23. Remember, gravity and centrifugal force are not just a good ideas. They're laws and are not subject to repeal.
24. The three most useless things to a rider are the braking distance behind you, the rest of the cable/fastener that's not broken, and a tenth of a second ago.
