I decided to fly through the air and live in the sunlight and enjoy life as much as I could.
I love the feeling of the fresh air on my face and the wind blowing through my hair.
Riding a motorcycle on today's highways, you have to ride in a very defensive manner. You have to be a good rider and you have to have both hands and both feet on the controls at all times.
I learned one thing from jumping motorcycles that was of great value on the golf course, the putting green especially: Whatever you do, don't come up short.
If you don't know about pain and trouble, you're in sad shape. They make you appreciate life.
Anybody can jump a motorcycle. The trouble begins when you try to land it.
If you fall during your life, it doesn't matter. You're never a failure as long as you try to get up.
But you come to a point in your life when you can't pull the trigger anymore.
You are the master of your own ship, pal. There are lots of people who fall into troubled waters and don't have the guts or the knowledge or the ability to make it to shore. They have nobody to blame but themselves.
It's easy to be famous today. People pay a million dollars to be recognized, but nobody cares about them. They cared about me because I did things other men were afraid to do. That's why my fans identified with me. They were mostly working-class.
You come to a point in your life when you really don't care what people think about you, you just care what you think about yourself.
The Internal Revenue Service is more ruthless than the Gestapo. Abolish the IRS! Stamp out organized crime!
Kids come up to me all the time and say, 'Once I was going through a really bad time, and I saw you crash and get up, and it inspired me.'
You can't forbid children to do things that are available to them at every turn. God told Eve, 'Don't give the apple to Adam,' and look what happened. It's in our nature to want the things we see.
I think if you have ability and talent in one way, you have it in all ways. I'm not a jack of all trades; I'm a master of many. I don't feel there is anything I can't do if I want to.
