Found this quote and thought I'd share it with you guys.

Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgement that something else is more important than fear.

Like riding, racing, winning or facing any adversity in our lives.

Courage:
"It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes up short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause; who in the end the triumph of high achievements; and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither defeat or victory".
Theodore Roosevelt April 10, 1899.

I believe I may have the spelling wrong.. :)

Valhalla is a place where dead Vikings/Warriors go... A place where true motorcyclists go when they die of OLD age.

For a Viking warrior's soul to reach the Hall of Odin (Valhalla) he had to die in battle or doing something brave.

You mean like Kevin putting his forks on his credit card without his wife knowing.
