A biker's creed

Post by BabyRider »

I ride purely, and only, because it is fun. I ride because I enjoy the

freedom I feel from being exposed to the elements, and the vulnerability to the danger that is intrinsic to riding.



I do not ride because it is fashionable to do so. I ride my machine, not wear it. My machine is not a symbol of status. It exists simply for me, and me alone.



My machine is not a toy. It is an extension of my being, and I will treat it accordingly, with the same respect as I have for myself. I strive to understand the inner-workings of my machine, from the most basic to the most complex. I will learn everything I can about my machine, so that I am reliant upon no one but myself for its health and well-being.



I strive to constantly better my skill of control over my machine. I will learn its limits, and use my skill to become one with my machine so that we may keep each other alive. I am the master, it is the servant.

Working together in harmony, we will become an invincible team.



I do not fear death. I will, however, do all possible to avoid death prematurely. Fear is the enemy, not death. Fear on the highway leads to death, therefore I will not let fear be my master. I will master it.

My machines will outlive me. Therefore, they are my legacy. I will care for them for future bikers to cherish as I have cherished them, whoever they may be.



I do not ride to gain attention, respect, or fear from those that do NOT ride, nor do I wish to intimidate or annoy them. For those that do not know me, all I wish from them is to ignore me. For those that desire to know me, I will share with them the truth of myself, so that they might understand me and not fear others like me.



I will never be the aggressor on the highway. However, should others mess with me, their aggression will be dealt with in as severe a manner as I can cast upon them.



I will show respect to other bikers more experienced or knowledgeable than I am. I will learn from them all I can. I will not show disrespect to other bikers less experienced or knowledgeable than I am. I will teach them what I can. It will be my task to mentor new riders, that so desire, into the lifestyle of the biker, so that the breed shall continue.



I shall instruct them, as I have been instructed by those before me. I shall preserve and honor traditions of bikers before me, and I will pass them on unaltered.



I will not judge other bikers on their choice of machine, their appearance, or their profession. I will judge them only on their conduct as bikers. I am proud of my accomplishments as a biker, though I will not flaunt them to others. If they ask, I will share them.



I will stand ready to help any other biker that truly needs my help. I will never ask another biker to do for me what I can do for myself. I am not a part-time biker. I am a biker whenever, and wherever I go. I am proud to be a biker, and I hide my chosen lifestyle from no one.



I ride because I love freedom,independence, and the movement of the ground beneath me. But most of all, I ride to better understand myself, my machine, the lands in which I ride, and to seek out and know other bikers like myself.

Everything in that passage is very true...brought a little tear to my eye. Some of the best times of my life so far have been had on bikes.

Looks like we're two peas from the same pod, BR:)

I have met a few dime store cowboys and the same goes for bikers. I love the guys that my husband and I ride with, and they are the real thing long hair and leather. I love them all they are all like my adopted dads. I am 26 and they make sure that I stay on the straight and narrow all the time, they dont call my husband and tell on me they crawl all over me and that is enough but at work no one messes with me or any of the other wives. :-6

They are the best friends you'll ever have, as you are seeing. If you liked this, you will really like "I'm just a Biker" also in this Biker forum.

Welcome to the madhouse!! :yh_peace
