 He sticks to his guns
He take the road as it comes
It take the shine off his shoes
He says it's a shame
You know it may be a game
Ah, but I won't play to lose

He's burning the grass
He take up a glass
He swallow it neat
He crosses the floor
He open the door
He take a sniff of the street

And she tell him that he's crazy
She's a-saying listen baby
I'm your wife
She tell him that he's crazy
For gambling a-with his life

But he climbs on his horse
You know he feel no remorse
He just kicks it alive
His motor is fine
He take it over the line
Until he's ready to dive

And she tell him that he's crazy
Yes she's saying listen baby
I'm your wife
Yeah she tell him that he's crazy
For gambling with his life

He sticks to his guns
He take the road as it comes
It take the shine off his shoes
He says it's a shame
You know it may be a game
Ah but I won't play to lose

He sticks to his guns
He take the road as it comes
It take the shine off his shoes
He's too fast to stop
He take it over the top
He make a line in the news

This is a song about BSA brakes  *lol*

Just about any AC/DC does it for me.
I was about 16 when they broke through worldwide. Changed my life forever.....>:D

Taking the A10 to a party where there's all these songs in a continuous loop and a couple of truckloads of beer. That's how I imagine heaven

Hey hey my my, Rock and Roll will never die....

 Yep Morris, they are in my blood. The Young brothers grew up in the next shire and played at my school a couple of times. I was at the Horden Pavilion when Angus chucked a browneye from the top of the speaker tower. *eek* '78.
A mate just sent me this  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eayllywNxUw&feature=em-share_video_user  That bl@@dy tune will be in my head on tomorrows ride.

My CCR song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gpqz3cdVPLM , bought the single in 69.

& was lately thinking about making some 'what are you listening to' topic, morris got it going.
edit: one more: " Sunlight will shine on my life again " !?? Sunlight will shine on my A10 again, maybe...

 Geez Muskie, the guys I work with reckon they'd pay big money to have what I'm on(life and fresh air, between you and me), but I reckon you're worth more than that, even I need what they think I'm on to analyze what  you mean for "it's a long way to the X if ya wanna @@@@ a m@l3......aaaaah?? sorry-, lost me, maybe I need to chase up some Tim Learys stuff ?????

 Ok I got lost betixt these songs, but e's DragonForce feels a bit like a cross of old Queen,Iron Maiden and something past King Crimson? 
 I like that George Formby one, I know some folk who may appreciate that
Usually what I sing to is Willies "On the road again' not really a bike song, but a band song...and Arlos' Motorcycle song
Can throw in a Ten Years After song, also not a bike song but the first time I remember it at 17 yo was intro up the freeway on-ramp, busting into it as we hit the Go lanes in my mates EH Van

What about Arlo Guthries "motorcycle song", that has to rate a mention surely.
