Default Motorcycle for sale?

One broken leg from a ladder accident was enough for me.

Nothing that man did was an accident.

He made a good living out of trying to commit suicide.

I managed 51 years motorcycling without a single broken bone before the arthritis pulled me off them (but I admit I do have several mildly damaged parts).

Had a two wheeler- took nineteen years for the scars to go away. I was barely moving when I went down in pea gravel, not going fast as some might think. Still can't figure out what happened.
EK couldn't get insurance, obviously. I have read that he invested his money in diamonds and precious metals.

I read an article once about a guy named E J Potter who drag races bikes with fuel injected Chevy 350 V8s mounted transverse in the frame. He called them Bloody Marys. Knievel once said “That son of a ***** must be crazy”. I thought was more than a little ironic.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
