The Lyrics

Growing up in the 1970s, every boy wanted a motorcycle, minibike, or go-cart and would beg their parents to get them a Yamaha or Honda 70-125cc dirt bike (sometimes a Husky). Even Wards and Sears catalogues sold them! My brother was into dirt early and some dual-sport, but I preferred street and got my first street bike at age 17. It was a Suzuki GS-450E. My brother did ROP with Yamaha but I declined the SECA 400. We had a guy in our neighborhood with a Kawi GPZ-550 that like to race and I took him on with my 450 and beat him! My first victory. A guy never forgets his first bike and in life I've had 11 of them- most Japanese and 1 Euro (a Ducati). It's hard to pick a fave b/c they were all different!!! I love bikes :)
Remember my first street bike at age 17
A brand-new Suzuki GS-450E
Asphalt to slay, clutch in to move it
Put it in gear, I gunned it and zoomed it!

[Chorus]
Rode it, ran the miles up
Had some fun and ran the miles up
Rode it, ran the miles up
Throttled away

“Little Green Machine”* race won
Burned some rubber
Kawi gave way, rider’s despair
Did fall down, on oil from rain
I got back up, crash bars on frame!

Rode it, ran the miles up
Had some fun and ran the miles up
Rode it, ran the miles up
Throttled away

Remember my first street bike at age 17
A brand-new Suzuki GS-450E
I loved to handle it and polish to mirror glaze**
My first bike will always retain its place

Rode it, ran the miles up, had fun
Rode it, ran the miles up
Rode it, ran the miles up
Throttled away

Rode it, ran the miles up
Had some fun and ran the miles up
Rode it, ran the miles up
Throttled away
* "Little Green Machine" was neighborhood GPZ-550 in green instead of red
** I never used water to clean any of my bikes, but Armor All which gave the bikes a mirror glaze. Water fades the paint and spots, and also tightens the seat to cracking point. Armor All protects.

Just wondering out loud if the person who 1-bombed me on this life experience has ever rode any type of motorcycle in his/her life? The freedom and independence is unrivaled by a car and there are huge advantages in performance and vision. You really get to enjoy trips and leisure riding or can get pleasure from touring with others or hanging with the crotch rocket gang doing wheelies, stoppies, and rolling feats of skill!!! Sometimes a bike is therapeutic. I love bikes. Don't know if there is an ALT Code for a heart but I would place one here :)

If you beat a 57 bhp 119 mph GPz on your 44 bhp 100 mph Suzi then there was either something wrong with the GPz or the rider didn't know how to ride it!

I had a stunt double (female) ride on a motorcycle for me in a never-finished zombie film. My cousin has wrecked twice in the past month. I don't trust any vehicle that won't stand up on its own. But, I guess I have some hazardous habits of my own. Takes a lot of skill to survive the thrill. I do like watching the motocross videos. Do you still get to ride now and then?

To ???... I believe for my model year of GS-450 ot was just under 50 hp and of course unless you are straightline acceleration racing on the Frwy and not street racing, usually the more powerful bike or car will win. But we were racing in the neighborhood and I took him on the corners and outrode him. I've done canyon racing and also almost hit 200 mph on I-80 West at early am hrs of darkness on a Suzuki Hyabusa (unmodified) goverened at 187 mph but using gravity from a downhill start to reach 197 mph before throttling back and carefully downshifting and braking through 4 miles of peril. My Monte Carlo V-6 took on Corvettes, Mustangs, HEMI Chargers, etc.. and I played dangerous 6-cross and slightlining to defeat them as well denying them straightline power. The MC handles excellently and the rivals dare not take the risks that I did in traffic. One Vette tried and I cleared a rig and car to my left within inches at 110 sustained. He hit the brakes and shoulder with a cloud of dust. I never allow anyone to beat me on the road, bike or car. My Katana 600 and 750 also blew-away many opponents of all types. Not everyone that rides is a true rider as the Harley-scum so often prove with their chrome couches that can barely do 100 mph w/o falling apart. When you see a Harley engine wibrating in its frame and its 1500cc+ with no power, you know the guy is buying the name and trying to tell everyone he is a badass when in fact the crotch rocket crowds just laugh their asses off at those piles of junk. Even the V-Rod is a sissy bike for girls at 1100cc- my VTX 1800 killed hte first one I came into contact with in the summer of 2001! Buell sucked too. FYI

My previous entry first line should have read IF instead of unless with straightline acceleration. Most guys that can't ride buy powerful bikes and try to show off when they take off at the light or hit the on-ramp to a Frwy. But when they encounter guys that can performace ride, they expose themselves as amateurs. The guy in my neighborhood used to ambush riders from his garage when they passed by. He would come up behind them and then hit the throttle to straightline them into submission. I baited him and then rapidly took the side streets with corners and leaned into them and back and forth until he fell way behind b/c he sucked at cornering and braking. I beat him fairly. I went on to ride a wide range of bike types and I do not want to slam decent Harley riders. But coming home from WW2 as a 20-something in the late '40s and into the '50s when the bikes got fatter (hence the name hog, NOT Harley Owners Group) while rebellion was brewing onscreen and off, that's when the great name of Harley Davidson soon took on an evil character that led to a rebellion symbol, then hate symbol with the Hell's Angels, and with the loud noisemake pipes and flag-waving mixed with Sturgis hedonism, morphed into scumbag badass wannabes that overpay for small tanks, inefficient motors, and uncomfortable ride bikes. Most of these guys suck at riding and cannot handle a pure performance racing machine from the Japanese or Europe. And those Harley dudes from the '60s-'80s also rode Nortons, Triumphs, BSA's, and BMW boxer twins as well as the early Honda 350s... so they are frauds too. Even Evel Knieval started out on Hondas!!! My brother worked for Capital Yamaha and Roseville Honda here and worked on his bike and mine, including my GS-450E to improve performance. Suzuki started the big street bikes with the GS-1000E and GS-1100E and later the first model Katana-S in 1982. Yamaha responded witht he V65 Magna. True crotch rockets did not appear until '85/86 with the Honda Hurricane and Kawi Ninja. I had a Yamaha XZ550RJ Vision that predated them. it was $3500 in 1984 with unique full fairing featuring retractable mirrors, wide windscreen, and 2 side air slots for air conditioning in the summer and heating in the winter as they could be opened and closed at will. The bike was liquid-cooled, V-Twin, with shaft drive and there wasn't a bike like it at the time. I miss that one most of all. It was black and gold and the only bike that looked like it was the Yamaha Turbo featured in "Never Say Never Again." I also had the turbo as well and Yamaha had the best of the four. The turbo kicked in around 4000 rpm IIRC so you couldn't over-rev the bike at a stop. I used to also love to make my bike engine purr at around 2000-2200 rpm in high gear. My '77 Camaro also purred- what a wonderful sound of this earth- heaven doesn't have everything. There are things down here of fallible man that God himself can replicate in the next life on future renovated earth... but cannot duplicate the individual's original joy and happiness of this fallen earth. I sincerely hope that the New Earth has roads and vehicles ;-)

Please tell us, in 10,000 words or more, how you beat God (that fraud) by creating the World in 5 days. Acronyms and model numbers count as half-words.

Another comment box critic that probably never rode a bike in his life and doesn't understand motorcycle chronology nor terminology. I've lived nearly half a century and all of the above is from experience and memory. I worked on bikes too like my brother and have always been familiar with the Harley crowd; especially when they almost went under three times (anyone remember the horrible AMF Harleys?)! Doo-(skip)-Doo cannot respond in kind so then tries his hand at Biblical swipes. Well, you lose there too b/c I will now use this to destroy the 24 hr 6 days of creation theory. God told Adam and Eve that if they ate from The Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil that they would die in THAT DAY. Eve was deceived so sin did not enter the world from her. It entered through Adam's disobedience b/c he chose his wife over God. Did he die in THAT DAY? No, he lived to be 930 yrs old! The Bible states that "a day with the Lord is if 1000 yrs." Obviously, Adam died in ONE OF GOD'S DAYS! And that also means that the 6 days of creation were 6000 years and then God rested 1000 years= 7000 years! It also means Christ has been gone only TWO DAYs since his death according to His time.Since Christ was born during TISHRI (Sept/Oct) sometime between 7/6 BC based on the Roman Census AND the alignment of 3 planets to form the unusual star, that means he died in 26 or 27 AD at age 33. Based on other scripture about "lifting us up" on a second day, the Rapture MUST occur by 2020 as the last 7 years are of the Tribulation Period and the Church is not present after Rev 4 at all, having been removed to make way for the Antichrist and his rule. So it is now 2014 and counting down. Maybe DODO can think of that instead of making lame comments on my thread.
