Keith 'Crasher' Nichols told me this about 45 yrs ago
'Second rule of riding/racing, if you don't hit it, it don't matter'

thats what i tell mrs spotty when she shouts at me for going too close to another car or a crash barrier. as far as i'm concerned if i miss it by an inch it may as well have been in the next suburb

You can't teach a pig to dance. You just waste your time and piss off the pig.
VERY delicate tasks: the slower you go, the faster you finish.
One more: You do what you want to do.

Ok, I'll bite... what's UBUNIBI?


Older son showed me this one the other day:

I asked an EOD guy once about the stress of bomb diffusing.
He shrugged and said "It's not. I'm either right, or suddenly it's not my problem anymore".
I try to stick to that perspective,


That reminded me of this one I heard a while back:

If you are a soldier, you are either:
 (1) at home or (2) at the Front.
 If (1), you neednít worry.
 If (2), you are either (1) out of the danger zone or (2) in it.
 If (1), you neednít worry.
 If (2), you are either (1) not hit, or (2) hit.
 If (1), you neednít worry.
 If (2) you are either (1) trivial or (2) dangerous.
 If (1), you neednít worry.
 If (2), you either (1) live or (2) die.
 If you live, you neednít worry: and Ė If you die, YOU CANíT WORRY!!
 So why worry?

Sound it out by the letters.   It means "You be you and I'll be me."  I heard it in an old reggae song.
