motorcycle racing is the MOST important...

Ranking the most important things in life is essential if an individual
wants to be happy, successful and fulfilled. There are several things that
should probably be on your "most important list". Many will rank "wife,
kids, girl friends, career, etc." (Caution should be exercised before
putting wife AND girl friend on the same list.)

However, your "most important list" should always start with "motorcycle racing".
After all you can always get a different wife or find another job. Your kids
will grow up just fine and hit you up for money anyway. Your old wife will
clean you out and at some point you will have to make the choice between
"girl friend or motorcycle racing" and we know which it's going to be, don't we?

So now that we have established that the most important thing in life is
motorcylce racing, where do we go from here?

An essential point to remember about motorcycle racing is that it will cost more
money than you have. Therefore, be prepared for a phenomenon known as
"debt". Debt is like a club that you are allowed to belong to, complete with
monthly dues. You will find that this Club is not exclusive. Anyone can
join. An easy way to join is to put motorcycle racing at the top of your list. To
become more than just a member of this Club, to really get involved with the
true intricacies of the Debt Club, be sure to choose an advanced motorcycle racing class.

One of the great things about motorcycle racing, and the reason that it's such an
important part of life, especially your life, is that we all know that you
want to do some good for your country. With all the world problems out
there, it's good to know that motorcycle racing is helping you to do your part in
keeping the country running.

Because of the unique dynamics of motorcycle racing, parts have a tendency to
break. This is good. New parts will be required to replace the broken ones,
which help boost the nations economy. Spending money is good for the
economy; everybody knows that. Even if it isn't really your money, it's
still good. It's as if you and your partner, the credit card company, are
part of a team. You will have your very own motorcycle racing team. Just you and
the bank.

Our bosom swells with pride just thinking about it.

If for some reason you are not breaking that many parts, don't become upset.
The parts you are using are probably obsolete by now and will need to be
replaced anyway. Again, it's "your team" doing what you can for your

And it's not just the money you spend on parts that makes a motorcycle racer a
good citizen. What about the motel bills when we go to BHF or Road America,
the fuel for the truck, the new trailer tires, the dinners you eat at the
Waffle House, the antacid tablets that you take after eating at the Waffle
House, the entry fees at the track? All of this money is helping the
economy, which will help the country fight terrorism, which will go a long
way toward insuring world peace.

So, never let anyone try to tell you that motorcycle racing is not the most
important thing in life.

motorcycle racers are helping to save the world.
