31) As it appears to have missed in the order - you know that Birmingham Small Arms is really BSA and you actually bought one as a basket case as a 12 year old kid , rebuilt it, rode it, tickled the Amal Carbs and used the decompression release so that you didnt break your leg on the kickstart. Oh and the fibreglass tank on my 441 Victor in Red and White looked good.

You live in a province with 8 and a half months of -40 degree winters and have 2 bikes and no cars.
You are seriously considering another bike.
You consider liposuction not because of vanity but because it is cheaper per pound than carbon fibre.

123) You sell some of the finest cages on the planet (Porsche & Audi)--for a living--and every time someone walks on the lot, the conversation always leads to talk of carbon fiber rear huggers, sprocket sizes and SS brake lines, ending with the customer heading over to the Honda shop!

143) The only cologne you wear is Ode de' 9er
144) When you get to work in November and December, your left hand is OK because you've been warming it on the tailpipe, but your right hand is immobile.
145) Your car(s) haven't seen soap in 2 years but your bike gets scrubbed every time a bug hits it.
146) The yellow "curves ahead" sign makes your day.
147) The yellow "30mph" sign on the next corner makes you chuckle.
148) A patch of gravel gets you all worked up, even when in a cage.
149) You seriously think about doing back to back IronButts just to meet some WT fools on the East Coast.
150) You have rainsuits stashed in various places, work, home, etc., just in case.
151) You define thresholds for riding, e.g., I will always ride if there's 30% or less forecast of rain.
152) Every trip becomes an excuse for a long haul.

154) You have lunch delivered to your office because there's no safe place to park the bike on the street downtown and they don't allow motorcycles in the parking garages.

155) Sometimes when you're too drunk to ride, you just go sit on your bike in the garage and pretend.

156) T-shirt, jeans and riding boots become your everyday office wear.

159) You tell your girlfriend that you would buy her an engagement bike, because when you look at the price of a diamond you think of it in terms of mods for your bike.

How do you know you girlfriend is a obsessed with motorcycles?

164) You relocate from the Great White North to the U.S. of A. to buy litre bikes at a price less than what CDN dealers pay cost for same.
165) You buy an RC51 when you know the ergos are gonna kill your old worn out body.
166) You keep buying Gixxers and trade down every year (1000-750-600) because you're cheap and then in the 4th year you suck it up and start all over again with the 1K , and the 'cycle' (no pun intended) repeats itself.
167) You think buying a Ducati 1098 as a piece of artwork and parking it in your living room would be cool.

You're exactly right. A lot of people have paid more for something I'd use for toilet paper.

The bike on the other hand would be cool, especially with the right lighting.

I had my z750 all ready to be stored in my appartment until I found out that my insurance was not going to cover it in that situation. That would have been so cool. In the middle of winter when I was really wishing I could ride I would have sat on it and watched "Super Bikes" on Spike TV. *sigh* I had it all planned out!

172. It's the middle of February, you're sitting in your office looking out the window at another snowy day, 23 degrees with 30mph winds, your motorcycles are safely tucked away under their covers, and instead of working you spend all day on the Wristtwisters Riders Forum TALKING ABOUT MOTORCYCLES!

Without a doubt the funniest post I have ever read. My face and stomach are still hurting from laughing so hard. I feel so relieved that what everybody around me considers to be weird is really just commonplace for motorcycle riders.

173) Knowing exactly how BIB the Michellin man feels when he is inspecting tires. Sad to let the last one go, but happy to see the next one.
