There are always more. Bikers keep on having silly, profound, you-nailed-it-dude! thoughts and putting them out there in the world. So this feature will never die. There will always be more great biker quotes. Here's the latest batch.

  • "The motorcycle, being poorly designed for both flight and marine operation, sustained significant external and internal damage," police noted.
  • In the grand scheme of things, what's it matter? Forget it! Let's ride.
  • Always take the long route!
  • One of the beautiful things about riding solo is the quality of the social experience.
  • Ride like you want to get up and do it again tomorrow.
  • I have friends, and I know other motorcyclists. But truly the best are friends who are motorcyclists.
  • On a perpetual dirty road tour in the land of Hicks and Nothing...
  • So what bike are you going to try it on? If someone loans me a KTM 950 I'll give it a swing, no guarantee on what the bike will look like after.
  • Riding a motorcycle is fun. Riding a supermoto is inexplicable.
  • When I finished high school, I wanted to take all my graduation money and buy myself a motorcycle. But my mom said no. See, she had a brother who died in a horrible motorcycle accident when he was 18. And I could just have his motorcycle.
  • When you stop chasing dreams, that's when you're getting old...until then enjoy the ride.
  • Ride for the soul!
  • If it ain't dirty you ain't riding enough.
  • Sometimes I get off the bike before it has come to a complete stop....
  • The older I get, the faster I used to be.
  • A straight road never made a skilled rider.
  • Some people will tell you that slow is good, and it may be on some days, but I am here to tell you that fast is better... Being shot out of a cannon will always be better than being squeezed out of a tube. That is why God made fast motorcycles, Bubba.... -- Hunter S Thompson
  • Love is the feeling you get when you like something as much as your motorcycle. Have you ever been in love?
  • Ride safe, ride often.
  • He who rides alone can start today.

There you go. I particularly like that last one. I ride alone a lot, and that suits me fine.
