Motorcycle Addiction...

This is a little test about if you are addicted to motorcycle riding or not? So who's addicted and has a "serious problem" The only serious problem that I can see is that tires are expensive...
Motorcycle Addiction

Even more serious than chocolate mania, is the growing epidemic of MA, or Motorcycling addiction. Don't laugh because you might be it's next victim. Just to give you a possible heads up in case it's creeping up on you, here are a few question to quietly answer for yourself.

How many of these apply to you?

I have gone riding when I was depressed, or to cheer myself up.
I have gone on riding binges of several tanks of gas or more in a day.
I have become seriously depressed when the weather changes and I am no longer able to ride.
I ride rapidly, often 'gulping' roads.
I have sometimes ridden early in the morning or before work.
I have hidden bikes in different places to sneak a ride in without being seen.
Sometimes I avoid friends or family obligations in order to ride motorcycles.
Sometimes I find myself analyzing sections of roads as if I was riding even while in cars.
I am unable to enjoy myself with others unless there is a bike nearby.
At a boring party, I will often slip off unnoticed to go riding.
Riding has made me seek haunts and companions which I would otherwise avoid.
I have neglected personal hygiene or household chores until I have finished a ride.
I have spent money meant for necessities on accessories instead.
I have attempted to complete an Iron Butt ride.
Most of my friends are frequent motorcycle riders.
I have sometimes passed out from a night of heavy riding.
I have suffered 'blackouts' or memory loss from a bout of riding.
I have wept, become angry or irrational because of a road I have ridden.
I have sometimes wished I did not ride so much.
Sometimes I think my riding is out of control.
If you answered 'yes' to three or more of these questions, you may be a motorcycle addict. Affirmative responses to five or more indicates a serious problem.

I agree, I'm totally screwed too. I'm just glad there is not anything about the track in there....I might have to go to MA for that one. I can see it now
