As many of you might know by now, I am a motorcyclist. I have me a fast little sportbike, and besides this blog, its one of the few things that keep me sane.
As part of being a good sport rider, once year I hop in a car, and make a 7 hour journey south to Myrtle Beach, South Caronlina … for the greatness that is Black Bike Week aka Atlantic Bike Week.
What happens at Bike Week you ask?
Well … uh … a lot of foolishness. There are bikes, women, alchohol, and … well … that’s about it.
One thing that often comes up is “don’t you have a girlfriend?”. Uh … yes. Is that a problem?
I’ve always found it interesting that people are so concerned about guys who come down here with significant others (girlfriends, fiancees, or wives) who come to bike week. If you are part of a motorcycle club, ride a motorcycle, or actually have an interest in bikes, shouldn’t you be “allowed” to come? Is it not possible for a guy to come down here in the midst of the craziness, have fun, and still not betray the love of his life?
Well … for all of those doubters, I say yes. And I now want to present the official SBM list of rules for having fun at Black Bike Week although you have a SO. The great thing about this list, it applies to a lot of different situations. Spring break, parties, or pretty much any road trip or vacation involving your boys.
The Official SBM List of Rules for Vacations, Trips, and Outings without the SO
Don’t f*ck up (read: Don’t disrespect the misses)
Ugh … that’s pretty much it.
Expected a long list of do’s and don’ts? Why … its simple. You know right and wrong … exhibit some self control and remember you got something good at home?
So, good people of SBM.net, readers, commenters, lurkers … feel me? Is it really crazy to expect a guy to “behave”, or is my sense of commitment and trust just on some super human level?
Anyways … back to drinking …
