You Know You're Obsessed with Motorcycles When...

1) You have a pet named "Desmo" or "Fazer" or the like.
2) You've broken more 10mm sockets than most people own.
3) You're on a first-name-basis with the FedEx and UPS drivers.
4) You've ever licked your fingertip and said "Yep, that's Repsol."
5) You could build a passable track bike with parts in your garage.
6) Every closet in your place smells like internal combustion and leather.
7) You have scars on your body shaped like rearsets and bar ends.
8) You swoon over Shoei and Ku****ani like women do Gucci and Prada.
9) "Which one?" is your response to "What kind of bike do you ride?"
10) The police stopped bothering you about noise, they just mail tickets.

Keep it going...
