A motorcycle is not an appliance.

"A motorcycle is not an appliance. No one hugs their refrigerator" -Big Sid from Big Sid's Vincati.

I'm currently reading this - Matthew Biberman sets out to help his dad, legendary Vincent tuner "Big Sid", build the special of their dreams: a Vincati - a Black Shadow engine in a Ducati frame, after Sid suffers a heart attack. Good stuff.

  1. Nice spot. That is a favorite line of Sid's. At one point each chapter had one as a header but then I stripped them out and went for them just as section headers. The Irving quote is also a popular one with Sid, along with Irving have said to him: "I talk to them." and "if you hit them hard enough with a hammer, they will pay you back." keep reading and let me know what you think when you are done!
