My Music Monday - Steppenwolf - Born To Be Wild

I have a neighbor who has a BMW Z-4 convertible.  Neat older guy. I was talking with him one morning about his car.  He said, he had thought about buying a motorcycle, then someone pointed out to him the only difference between his convertible and a motorcycle was two extra wheels that keep it upright and a top that keeps the rain out, he couldn't be much more out in the wind if he tried.  Good point, it is unlikely I will ever own a motorcycle - well there was the Harley that one time, that I was hiding for a friend, who didn't want his father to know he had bought, so we put it in my name and hid it in my father's garage while they were north for the summer until the time was right to break the news.  That is until my parents showed up unexpectedly in May- I had some explaining to do. And my father, knew his father, more explaining to do.    

For now, this is about as wild as I need to get.

  1. I had a friend with a motorcycle when we were in college. Used to go riding with him. THAT was enough for me.

    1. Men our age who buy motorcycles for the first time, area trying to make up for a boring life. We have been fabulous, nothing to make up for.

  4. I love this song, even though I was born to be mild! Balder Half has a pretty purple BMW motorcycle sitting in the garage. I call her Violet, his mistress. Did it behind my back, the bastid. I refuse to sit on it let alone ride. Now, I can get behind a convertible of any make! The wind blowing through my unmovable hair. Love it!
