Am I superstitious , I don't think so, but I have noticed that I make a mental note each time I put the key in the bike to be sure the plastic square (shutter lock) is facing up.
I'd liked think I do it as a mental "set" to go riding but I wonder because I find myself making sure each time.
Anyone else ? -or maybe I'm just going nuts :(

I hate that dollgarn key. I always insert it so that the eye is low and the rest of the keys can swing freely. Superstitious? Nawwww. 8)

ps - i don't open a pack of smokes on the warning label side either :wink:

One more thing...If I have to use the cage, it's half chance that I'll get that stupid Suzuki key stickin into the top of my thigh because it's "akimbo" due to it's design (if you're stuck with an old school ford you'd catch my drift..) and the way the keys are hanging otta my vic's ignition switch - and the way my 43 foot long (it seems) legs hafta fold into the drivers area. erg. :evil:

I guess I ought just drive a Honda CRX with no dayum back seat! :wink:

peace out yo.

Superstitious? Nah... You just get used to doing something one certain way and you would probably go nuts if you did change it.

I put it in facing up also, but mine has more to do with the other keys on the ring with it so that they are not getting caught in the ring around the shutter lock.

I missed the point of this the first time I read it. Never knew you could put the key in "upside down". :shock:

I'm not superstitous though. I just don't want the engine to run backwards! :lol:

I have not been superstitious for many years now and I am completely OK with that - touch wood! :D

The only time I'm superstitious when it comes to bike is with new riding jackets or pants. It's customary to put on new apparel and then demagnatize said apparel by rolling on the ground. This is suppose to prevent any future falls due to the new apparels magnetic pull towards the ground.

I'm proud to say it has worked for me so far!

Well, me too, then! Ah, happy student days ...


Cat’s foot iron claw
Neuro-surgeons scream for more
At paranoia’s poison door.
Twenty first century schizoid man.

Blood rack barbed wire
Polititians’ funeral pyre
Innocents raped with napalm fire
Twenty first century schizoid man.

Death seed blind man’s greed
Poets’ starving children bleed
Nothing he’s got he really needs
Twenty first century schizoid man.
