My Pops
Vagabonds MC. 1969 Oakland Ca. The real deal.
My granddad's speech was " ride like you got no brakes , If you have to panic stop you actually screwed up about a hundred yards before that " !

Another gem was " They aint but two kinds of people out there driving cars , Them that caint see you 'cause they aint looking and them that see you and will try to kill you ! The way to tell the difference is if the bugger is looking right at you he is taking aim !! "

My favorite though was " Unlike a good woman , A motorcycle aint no fun at all if it ends up on top during the ride !"
