    Good collection here....strangely, I find it amusing that most of the quotes here are already the signatures of few of us.

    Sherry, get more in, I might change my own signature soon!!
    Its not about the BHP or the CC, its about one common religion called Biking!!!

    Save the Tigers! Only 1411 (excluding ME) are left!




    This is my entry in the blogging world!!

    • You start the game with a full pot o' luck and an empty pot o' experience... The object is to fill the pot of experience before you empty the pot of luck.
    • Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, 'Wow! What a Ride! ~Hunter S. Thompson
    • Never trade the thrills of living for the security of existence.
    • A zest for living must include a willingness to die. ~R.A. Heinlein
