I always wonder about this "my group" is better than "the other group" attitude? Where does it comes from? And how would this group (biker friends) exist in the past when there were no motorcycles? Would they be 'chariot friends" or maybe "jackass friends"? Or would everyone be in the "other group"?

Or maybe I'm just taking the post too darn seriously.

yea maybe your taking the post too serious, but it is something to ponder.

I thought it funny, yet it still had truth to it.

It was funny, but what truth do you think it reveals? I am of two minds here.

On the pessimistic side I could quote the truth of " if you are not like me or my friends you are not a good and true person"

On the optimistic side I could quote the truth of " As I learn more about you and share experiences with you, you become part of my family and I become a part of yours"

I think we'd all like to have things be as you describe things from the optimistic side. I know I would.

Either one you care to see in a person/group is what it is revealing to you.

and yes you are taking it too seriously

I suspect what this really tells us is that we are closest to those who share a common interest with.

I can't really say I have any "biker friends" to tell you the truth, but I've only been riding a bike a year or so. There are some people I know who have bikes, but that's not the same. I do have "bass fishing friends" though. A lot of that would apply to them.

I'll stick to judging individuals based on my own criteria. And as flawed as it may be, it's the only one I got, and the only one I need. Fortunately, it's evolving as I grow older.

Funny though, my wife's not a "biker". And she's my best friend in the whole wide world. And sometimes . . . all you need is one.

Joe, feel free to substitute "biker" with any other description that fits your bill. For some it is bass fishing friends as Wayne said, for others it will be chess players, professional landscapers or what have you. Glad to hear your wife is your best friend, especially since she lives there with you... I am sure the two of you share something in common, even if you don't know what it is. What is important is that you found each other, just as it is important that you found the people who are your friends in life.

Particularly if the Bass you caught is bigger than theirs,

They will eat yours

Your comment is spot on. At one point in my life I was writing software that was used for job screening. As questions were being assembled and algorithms were being designed to collate the answers, I was introduced to one of the key components of these tests. Where honesty lurks. It lurks in what you think of strangers. For example "Do you think most judges are corrupt and would take a bribe?" By saying yes you are in essence saying that you could take a bribe.

Ok, enough " college sophomore pot talk". What kind of oil should I put in my final drive to stop the my tires from cupping and the front end from shaking when I let go of the handlebars?

well now that you got serious!, I would say if your into the bass fishing group of friends you would use fish oil in the final drive and that would solve all the problems of the tires cupping and the front end wobbles, but not the problem of not being able to catch more fish than your Bass buddies, and you do know fishermen tell the biggest tales right!
