Geoff2 Posted October 15, 2007 Share Posted October 15, 2007 .......but I found this very profetic(Ripped from another bike web page) Subject: ripped from a bike site I saw you hug your purse closer to you in the grocery store.But you didn't see me put an extra £10.00 in the collection plate lastSunday. I saw you pull your child closer when we passed each other on the pavement.But you didn't see me playing Santa at the local mall. I saw you change your mind about going into the restaurant.But you didn't see me attending a meeting to raise more money for a charity. I saw you roll up your window and shake your head when I drove by.But you didn't see me driving behind you when you flicked your cigarettebutt out the car window. I saw you frown at me when I smiled at your children.But you didn 't see me when I took time off from work to run toys to kids in Hospitals. I saw you stare at my long hair and beard.But you didn't see me and my friends cut it off for charities. I saw you roll your eyes at our leather jackets and gloves.But you didn't see me and my brothers donate our old coats and gloves tothose that had none. I saw you look in fright at my tattoos.But you didn't see me cry as my children where born and have their namewritten over and in my heart. I saw you change lanes while rushing off to go somewhere.But you didn't see me going home to be with my family. I saw you complain about how loud and noisy our bikes can be.But you didn't see me when you were changing the CD and drifted into mylane. I saw you yelling at your kids in the car.But you didn't see me pat my child's hands, knowing he was safe behind me. I saw you reading the newspaper or map as you drove down the road.But you didn't see me squeeze my womans leg when she told me to take the next turn. I saw you race down the road in the rain.But you didn't see me get soaked to the skin so my son could have the car to go on his date. I saw you run the yellow light just to save a few minutes of time.But you didn't see me trying to turn right I saw you carve me up because you needed to be in the lane I was in.But you didn't see me leave the road. I saw you waiting impatiently for my friends to pass. But you didn't see me.I wasn't there. I saw you go home to your family.But you didn't see me. Because, I died that day you cut me off. I WAS JUST A BIKER. A person with friends and a family. But you didn't see me. Said in hopes that people will understand the biker community. Link to comment
