When you're in a car, you're trying to get there.
When you're on a motorcycle, you're already there.


A Motorcyclist's Prayer
O, dear Father I ask for you to watch over me as I ride from point a to b. Help all other motorists to see me clearly and help me to stay out of their way. Bring me back to my family in one-piece dear God, these things I pray. Amen
