even more racer humor... errrr advise

.Contrary to the popular notion, the best way to dry off a freshly washed bike is not with a 5th gear glory blast down a dusty dark alley.

2.Regular maintenance is the key to reliability; irregular maintenance is the key to great exercise.

3.The 3-percent rule: If you want to go faster, ride with people who are 3-percent faster than you.

4.The other 3-percent rule: If you want to have fun, ride with people who are 3-percent slower than you.

5.There is no physical training regimen so strict that it can't be undermined by a rigorous program of deferred motorcycle maintenance.

6.Patience is a virtue of many racers. Unfortunately, it's also a virtue of a lot of losers.

7.The wise racer only pisses off the people he can beat.

8.The secret of successful race tuning is knowing when to start riding and stop tuning.

9.If you're going to pray, pray for FACTORY intervention. Divine intervention isn't much use, since the guy upstairs isn't really all that up on the proper set-up.

10.You can't 2 a triple. At least not a second time.

11.Never underestimate the power of good old-fashioned intimidation.

12.The race goes to the swift. But sometimes none of them show up, and the rest of us have a shot at it.

13.The more complete your on-board tool-kit, the more likely it is that all your trail riding buddies will expect you to fix everything that breaks on their bikes.

14.A good rider can overcome marginal equipment. However, even the best equipment can't overcome a marginal rider.

15.Blood in your stool is nature's way of suggesting that you rethink your spring rates.

16.Gravity intensifies with the installation of new levers.

17.You only have one chance to make a first-turn impression.

18.Careful maintenance and preparation is critical to making your playbike reliable enough to tow your buddy's rat bike to the truck every weekend.

19.Winning tuners never have "left over" parts

The first turn is the worst turn, between the left ear and the right one.
