A mechanic was removing a cylinder-head from the motor of a Harley motorcycle when he spotted a well-known cardiologist in his shop.
The cardiologist was there waiting for the service manager to come take a look at his bike when the mechanic shouted across the garage "Hey Doc, want to take a look at this?"
The cardiologist, a bit surprised, walked over to where the mechanic was working on the motorcycle. The mechanic straightened up, wiped his ha nds on a rag and said, "So Doc, look at this engine. I open its heart, take the valves out, repair any damage, and then put them back in, and when I finish, it works just like new.
So how come I make $39,675 a year, a pretty small salary and you get the really big bucks ($1,695,759) when you and I are doing basically the same work?"
The cardiologist paused, smiled and leaned over, then whispered to the mechanic................................
"Try doing it with the engine running."
You Don't Need A Harley To Pick Up
On the farm lived a chicken an a horse, both of whom loved to play together.
One day the two were playing when the horse fell into a bog and began to sink.
Scared for his life, the horse whinnied for the chicken to go get the farmer for help!
Off the chicken ran, back to the farm. Arriving at the farm, he searched and searched for the farmer, but to no avail, for the farmer had gone to town with the only tractor.
Running around, the chicken s pied the farmer's new Harley.
Finding the keys in the ignition, the chicken sped off with a length of rope hoping he still had time to save his friend's life.
After tying the other end to the rear bumper of the farmer's bike, the chicken then drove slowly forward and, with the aid of the powerful bike, rescued the horse!
Happy and proud, the chicken rode the Harley back to the farmhouse, and the farmer was none the wiser when he returned.
The friendship between the two animals was cemented: Best Buddies, Best Pals.
A few weeks later, the chicken fell into a mud pit, and soon, he too, began to sink and cried out to the horse to save his life!
The horse thought a moment, walked over, and straddled the large puddle. Looking underneath, he told the chicken to grab his hangy-down thingy
and he would then lift him out of the pit.
The chicken got a good grip, and the horse pulled him up and out, saving his life.
The moral of the story?
(yep, you betcha, there is a moral!)
"When You're Hung Like A Horse, You Don't Need A Harley To Pick Up
This is a woman who knows what she wants !!!
A biker stops by the local Harley Shop to have his bike fixed. They couldn't do it while he waited, so he said he
didn't live far and would just walk home. On the way home he stopped at the hardware store and bought a bucket and an
anvil. He stopped by the feed store/livestock dealer and picked up acouple of chickens and a goose. However,
struggling outside the store he now had a problem: how to carry all of his purchases home.
While he is scratching his head he was approached by a
little old lady who told himshe was lost. She asked, "Can
you tell me how to get to 1603 Mockingbird Lane?" The biker
said, "Well, as a matter of fact, I live at 1616 Mockingbird Lane. I would walk you home but I can't carry this lot."
The old lady suggested, "Why don't you put the anvil in the
bucket, carry the bucket in one hand, put a chicken under
each arm and carry the goose in the other hand?" "Why thank
you very much," he said and proceeded to walk the old girl home.
On the way he says, "Let's take my shortcut and go down
this alley. We'll be there in no time."The little old lady looked him over cautiously then said, "I am a lonely widow without a husband to defend me. How do I know that when we get in the alley you won't hold me up against the wall, pull up my skirt, and ravish me?"
The biker said, "Holy smokes lady! I am carrying a bucket,
an anvil, two chickens and a goose. How in the world could
I possibly hold you up against the wall and do that?" The
lady replied, "Set the goose down, cover him with the bucket, put the anvil on top of the bucket and I'll hold the chickens."
Headlites and wheels
Motorcycle rider pulls into a diner in upstate N.Y. Seats himself and asks the waitress for 2 headlites and 2 wheels. The waitress who had just worked all night wasn't in a good mood said what are you talking about? The rider already tired ,but happy to relax at the diner said" Just tell the cook he'll know what I mean but the expression 2 headlights and 2 wheels. By this time the waitress is pissed and yells back at the old cook, "I got this weird one out here who thinks you'll know what he wants if he orders 2 headlites and 2 wheels". Yeah I know what he wants, Yells the cook, He wants 2 eggs sunny side up and 2 pancakes. No problem . Well this just pisses off the waitress even more than before. SO, just be the breakfast is served to the rider, she walks up with a big plate of chili beans and slams them down on the table. "Here" she yells for all to hear, " here's you chili! But, the rider who didn't order the chili answers back What is this for? The waitress is ready for this yells back" I thought you would want to gas up before you took off"

How the Executive Lost his Classy Kicks
• This extremely well-dressed and
successful young executive was driving to a meeting
when he found that the front left tire on his Lexus
• "What am I going to do?" he thought. But then he
saw a gas station up ahead. It was a rundown shack
with a grizzled man in overalls sitting on a porch
with pools of oil, but at least it was a gas
station; in the window was a large sign saying "help
wanted". The executive drove up and got out of the
car and explained the situation.
• "Why sure!" said the mechanic "I'm lookin' for a
boy to work for me and help me out, so we're kinda
short-handed. . .".
• He looked over the dapper, dignified and
impeccably dressed executive's very expensive navy
blue pinstriped business suit, his imported silk tie
and gleaming cufflinks and white shirt, his polished
black shoes, his hundred dollar haircut and his
• "My name is Bud! You must be one of them
executives!" said the mechanic. "I can tell by your
• "My WHAT?" snapped the exec.
• "Your KICKS! Your SHOES! Mighty classy, sir!"
grinned the mechanic.
• Yes. . .yes. Well, the FIRST thing people notice are
your shoes!" said the executive in a condescending
tone, as he straightened his tie and checked the
shine on his shoes. "My name is Mr. James Porter. . .I
am making an important presentation today! My whole
career depends on it. Now please get to work! What
are you doing?!"
• Bud was pulling out a huge pail of water. "You get
a free car wash today, sir! I sure wish I had a boy
to work for me - I gotta do this all myself!"
• "I don't have time for that!" cried Mr. Porter.
• "You wouldn't know anybody who would WORK for me,
would you, sir?" asked Bud.
• "NO!" snapped Mr. Porter.
• "I should have known! Somebody who wears classy
kicks like you do wouldn't know any grease monkeys!"
• "GET TO WORK" snapped Mr. Porter
• "Now, don't worry! You upper class folks are
always worryin'!" And at that moment, Bud's foot hit
the pail of water, and it toppled over, completely
soaking Mr. Porter's expensively shod feet.
• "NOW LOOK WHAT YOU'VE DONE!!" yelled Mr. Porter.
"My feet are DRENCHED through! SOAKED! Do you know
how much these shoes cost! Someone like YOU doesn't
have to worry about this!"
• "Oh, sir! Please accept my apology! All over your
fancy high class shoes! Well, it's a fine day. . .just
take off yer shoes and socks and let them dry! Nobody
is gonna see ya!"
• "Take off my shoes and socks! I suppose I have no
choice! I'm just glad that my colleagues can't see
this!" said Mr. Porter, as he sat on the porch and
slowly, grudgingly slid his feet out of his highly
polished black Brooks Brothers shoes and then peeled
off his business socks. Bud picked up the shoes and
whistled with admiration.
• "Mighty fancy!" he said, with a grin. "Ya know,
you look like you belong here now that yer
• "Put my shoes down immediately!" said Mr. Porter
• Mr. Porter carefully arranged his suit and tie as
if to make up for the indignity of going barefoot.
• "Lemme show ya somethin', Mister Porter" said Bud,
who got into the car and drove it forward - and ran
over Mr. Porter's briefcase, ruining it.
• "MY BRIEFCASE!" yelled the businessman.
• "Sorry, sir! But I have to tell ya something!"
said Bud, who was bending over the engine.
• "I didn't ask you to look at the engine" shouted
Mr. Porter. "You destroyed my briefcase!!"
• "But you got a problem!" said Bud. "Look! Get
• Mr. Porter leaned over the engine. "I don't see
anything. . ."
• "Closer!" said Bud.
• "I still don't. . ." and Mr. Porter began to lift his
head, and felt himself stuck.
• "My tie!" he yelled. "My necktie. . .and my
suspenders! They're caught in the engine!"
• "Look what ya done, sir! I'll get ya free!"
• "I DIDN'T DO THIS!" yelled Mr. Porter, but he
couldn't move at all. His tie and his suspenders had
gotten tied up in the engine. . ..Somehow.
• "Now just hold still!" said Bud, and in a moment,
Mr. Porter was free, and his tie and suspenders were
in Bud's hands.
• "ARE YOU INSANE?!" yelled Mr. Porter. "Give me
those. . ."
• "Mr. Porter" said Bud, ignoring the comment. "I'm
gonna need yer help in getting' that tire out of the
back, and then you gotta help me get the new one -
it's underneath an old engine. I can't lift 'em, ya
see. I got lumbago. It's too bad I ain't got a boy
to work for me!"
• "What?!" said Mr. Porter. "You expect ME to do it?
Look at this suit! This is a two thousand dollar
suit! It was tailored for me. I can't get it dirty,
and this is a silk tie! And a hundred dollar shirt!
I'm an executive. . .I don't do menial work. . ."
• "I'm sorry, sir. . ." said Bud. "There's no other way!
I know! Why don't ya take off yer nice suit? I got a
fine pair of overalls for ya!"
• "This is an outrage!" cried Mr. Porter. "I will
NOT take off my suit! I have my dignity and my
• "Then you'll have yer dignity and yer pride but
you won't get a new tire" said Bud.
• Mr. Porter stomped and fumed but finally gave in
and angrily stripped off his pinstriped business
suit, his cufflinks and his starched white shirt and
placed them on a wooden table. Then he put on the
greasy overalls and pulled the tire out of the
• But just then his bare feet hit a patch of oil,
and he staggered backwards and fell; the filthy tire
fell on top of him. He felt his head hit something
soft. Bud ran over and said: "Mr. Porter, it's a
good thing your head hit the tar! It broke yer
• The executive pushed the tire off, and felt the
grease, gravel and tar all over his t-shirt and his
face. He lifted what had been a manicured hand to
his head and felt a mass of something gooey.
• "My hair!" Mr. Porter yelled, as he stood.
• "I gotta cut that tar out, sir! It ain't gonna
come out any other way!" and he pulled out some
scissors and with a few quick snips, the executive's
neat haircut was replaced by a patchy crewcut.
• "WHAT ARE YOU DOING!?" yelled Mr. Porter.
• "Here, this will calm ya down!" Bud shoved a
bottle of whiskey into Mr. Porter's hand and poured
solme of it on his shirt.
• "NO!" yelled the executive. "LOOK AT ME, YOU
• "Leave me alone! Help, police!" screamed Bud. He
grabbed Mr. Porter's cell phone and called the
police and then called the newspaper.
• In a moment the police were there.
• Bud whimpered: "This man is drunk! Just smell him,
officer! And tried to beat me up! and rob the till!"
• "I DID NOT!" shouted Mr. Porter.
• "Assault, robbery, disorderly conduct, resisting
arrest, drunkenness...you're coming with me!"
• And the policeman dragged the struggling Mr.
Porter, barefoot in overalls off to jail.
• The next day the judge prepared to sentence Mr.
Porter while they all looked at the newspaper with
the headline: Drunk Thief Jailed for Assault and
• But Bud said; "Your honor, don't put this man
behind bars! He ATTACKED me, but, I'll allow him to
make it up to me - I got an idea!"
• A month later, a customer drove up to Bud's and
Bud called his new assistant to wait on him. A man
in overalls and work boots and a crew cut came out
and started to work on the car.
• "JIMMY BOY! Don't forget the oil! You ex-cons are
• "YES, SIR!" said Jimmy-boy Porter.
• A Porsche with a "for sale" sign sat outside.
• A help wanted sign lay in the garbage.
• In the window was an Italian pinstriped business
suit, a silk tie, a white shirt, and a pair of cuff
links with a "for sale" sign.
• "Don't forget what I told ya!" snapped Bud.
• "But, please..." said Jimmy-boy.
• "NOW!" yelled Bud.
• Jimmy-boy sighed and went up to the customer.
• "Sir, we have a special today - with an oil
change, you can buy these real cheap."
• He held up a pair of very expensive polished
• "These are for sale. One pair of classy kicks -
once worn by a former executive - best offer - silk
socks included. After all, the first thing people
notice are your shoes."
The Happy Mailman
• It was George the Mailman's
last day on the job after 35 years of carrying the
mail through all kinds of weather to the same
neighborhood. When he arrived at the first house on
his route, he was greeted by the whole family who
congratulated him and sent him on his way with a
tidy gift envelope.
• At the second house, they presented him with a box
of fine cigars. The folks at the third house handed
him a selection of terrific fishing lures.
• At the fourth house, he was met at the door by a
strikingly beautiful woman in a revealing negligee.
She took him by the hand, gently led him through the
door, which she closed behind him, and took him up
the stairs to the bedroom where she blew his mind
with the most passionate love he had ever
• When he had enough, they went downstairs and she
fixed him a giant breakfast: eggs, potatoes, ham,
sausage, blueberry waffles, and fresh-squeezed
orange juice. When he was truly satisfied, she
poured him a cup of steaming coffee. As she was
pouring, he noticed a dollar bill sticking out from
under the cup's bottom edge. "All this was just too
wonderful for words," he said, "But what's the

My hair and swimsuit still drip from the last ride

We made it a game so I wouldn't have doubt
The Jedis are counting on me to help out
Darth Vader, the Emperor, and storm troopers fight
Only my courage will end this dark plight
I take a deep breath to dispell all my nerves
It doesn't relax, but the purpose it serves
With eyes shut tight I rush down the slide
It's amazingly long, but not very wide

Half the way down, Dad is yelling to me
I think all the worst that could happen is through
Until Dad's words reach me,
"May the shorts be with you!"

The rabbit biker
• Once upon a time there was a frog who lived in a lake all by himself. He had been given special powers by a local witch. One day he finally
ventured out of the lake to get his first glimpse of the world outside.
The first thing he saw was a bear chasing a rabbit and so he called
to them and asked them to stop.
Then he said to them: "I am a magical frog and since you are the
two animals I have ever seen, I am going to grant you both three
wishes. You will each take turns using them and you have to use them
The bear (being greedy) went first. I would like for every bear in
forest to be female except for me." A magical sound and it was done.
Then the rabbit. "I would like a helmet." This confused both the
frog and the bear, but after a magical sound there was a helmet.
It was the bear's turn again. "I would like for every bear in the
neighboring forest to be female." A magical sound and it was done.
The rabbit went again. "I would like a motorcycle."
Both the frog and the bear wondered why the rabbit didn't just ask
for a lot of money with which he could buy himself a motorcycle, but
after a magical sound there was a motorcycle. The bear took his last

me." A magical sound and it was done.
The rabbit then put on his helmet, started up the motorcycle, and
"I wish the bear was gay" and took off like a bat out of hell.

to the rider, 'Ma'am,
you're driving much too slowly, could you please drive faster?"

Stopped for speeding
• A rookie police
officer pulled a biker over for speeding and had the following exchange:
• Officer: May I
see your driver's license?
• Biker: I don't have one. I had it suspended when I got my 5th DUI.
• Officer: May I
see the owner's card for this vehicle?
• Biker: It's not my bike. I stole it.
• Officer: The
motorcycle is stolen?
• Biker: That's right. But come to think of it, I think I saw the owner's
in the tool bag when I was putting my gun in there.
There's a gun in the tool bag?
• Biker: Yes sir. That's where I put it after I shot and killed the dude who
this bike and stuffed his dope in the saddle bags.
There's drugs in the saddle bags too?!?!?
• Biker: Yes, sir.
the rookie immediately called his captain. The biker was quickly surrounded
by police, and the captain approached the biker to handle the tense
• Captain: Sir,
can I see your license?
• Biker: Sure. Here it is.
It was valid.
• Captain: Who's
motorcycle is this?
• Biker: It's mine, officer. Here's the registration.
• Captain: Could
you slowly open your tool bag so I can see if there's a gun in it?
• Biker: Yes, sir, but there's no gun in it.
Sure enough, there was nothing in the tool bag.
• Captain: Would
you mind opening your saddle bags?
I was told you said there's drugs in
• Biker: No problem.
The saddle bags were opened; no drugs.
• Captain: I
don't understand it. The officer who stopped you said you told him you
didn't have a license, stole this motorcycle, had a gun in the tool bag,
that there were drugs in the saddle bags.
• Biker: Yeah, I'll bet he told you I was speeding, too.
An Old man on a moped
• A hip young man goes out and buys the best car available: a 1996,
Cosmo Quad Turbo RX-7. It is the best and most expensive car in the
world, and it runs him 500,000 EURO. He takes it out for a spin and, while
doing so, stops for a red light. An old man on a moped (looking about
90 years old) pulls up next to him. The old man looks over the sleek,
shiny surface of the car and asks, "What kind of car ya' got there,
• The young man replies: "A 1996 Cosmo Quad Turbo RX-7. It cost 500,000 EURO.
• "That's a lot of money" says the old man, shocked. "Why does it cost so
• "Because this car can do up to 200 miles an hour!" states the cool dude
• The moped driver asks, "Can I take a look inside?
• "Sure," replies the
So, the old man pokes his head in the window and looks around. Leaning
back on his moped, the old man says "That's a pretty nice car, all
Just then, the light changes, so the guy decides to show the old man
what his car can do. He floors it, and within 30 seconds the speedometer
reads 200 MPH.
Suddenly, he notices a dot in his rear view mirror. It seems to be
getting closer! He slows down to see what it could be and suddenly,
whhhoossh! Something whips by him, going much faster! "What on earth could be going faster than my 7?" the young man asks
Then, ahead of him, he sees a dot coming toward him. Whoooooosh! It goes
by again, heading the opposite direction! And, it almost looked like the
old man on the moped! "Couldn't be," thinks the guy. "How could a
outrun an RX-7?"
Again, he sees a dot in his rear view mirror! Whooooosh Ka-Bbbla...MMM! It
plows into the back of his car, demolishing the rear end. The young man
jumps out, and Jesus to Betsy, it is the old man!!! Of course, the moped
and the old man are hurting for certain. He runs up to the dying old man
and says, "You're hurt bad! Is there anything I can do for you?"
• The old man groans and replies "Yes. Unhook my suspenders from your

• Two guys were roaring down the road on a motorcycle when the driver slowed
up and pulled over. His leather jacket had a broken zipper, and he told
his friend, "I can't drive anymore with the air hitting me in the chest
like that." "Just put the jacket on backwards." His friend advised.
They continued down the road but around the next bend, they lost control
and wiped out. A nearby farmer came upon the accident and ran to call
the police. They asked him, "Are they showing any signs of life?"
"Well," the farmer explained, "the driver was until I turned his head
around the right way!"
A little old lady wants to join a local biker club !

wanted to join a local biker club. One day she goes

biker with tattoos all over his arms answers.

• The guy was amused, but says she needs to meet certain biker
requirements in order to join.

points to a Harley in the driveway.
• The biker asks: "Do you drink?"
• The little old lady replies: "Yep... drink like a fish.
I'll drink any
man in your club under the table."
• The biker asks: "Do you smoke?"

At least 4
packs of cigarettes a day.
I'm shooting pool."

picked up by the fuzz?"

but I've been swung
around by my nipples a few times."
a motorcycle mechanic?
• A gynecologist was getting sick of his job and decided that he needed a
career change. He'd always enjoyed tinkering with motorcycle engines so
thought he'd become a motorcycle mechanic. The good doctor went along to the American Institute of Motorcycling, the
best motorcycle mechanics school in the country, and completed the training
class. The final exam was to strip a bike engine completely and reassemble
it - obviously back into perfect working order. So our gynecologist friend
did the test and anxiously awaited the result. The day he received the results he got quite a surprise, he got 150%! He
quickly phoned the instructor and queried the mark. The instructor said,
"No, no that's right. First I gave you 50% for stripping down the engine --
a very thorough job. Next I gave you 50% for reassembling it - a fantastic
job really. Then I gave you a 50% bonus for doing it
all through the muffler."
• A Highway Patrolman waited outside a popular biker bar,
hoping for a bust.
At closing time everyone come out and he spotted his potential quarry. The
man was so obviously inebriated that he could barely walk. He stumbled
around the parking lot for a few minutes, looking for his motorcycle. After
trying his keys on five other bikes, he finally
found his own bike. He sat on his motorcycle in a
good ten minutes, as the other patrons left. He
turned his lights on, then off, and again on and
off. He started his engine and pull forward into the
grass, then stopped. Finally, he pulled out onto the
road and started to drive away. The patrolman,
waiting for this, turned on his lights and pulled
the man over. He administered the breathalyzer test,
and to his great surprise, the man blew a 0.00. The
patrolman was dumbfounded. "This equipment must be
broken!" he exclaimed. "I doubt it," said the man,
"You see, tonight I am the designated decoy... I
haven't had a drink all day!"
