“Its all downhill except for the uphill parts.”

Referring to the those nasty cracks in the road ” Crack kills.”

When catching a whiff of the pigs: “There’s the smell of money.” Heard that constantly in 2014.

Passing (and then quickly stopping) at the first Bloody Mary/Mimosa stand 5 minutes into the ride at 6:05am: “Start building your hangover here!”

“Seven days with friendly people.”

“Is that free?” “Where’d you get that?” “On your left!!!” “Rumbles!!!”

(1) “Never ride faster than your guardian angel can fly!”

(2) “He who has one for the road gets Trooper as chaser.”

(3) Daddy Woo’s Corollary to #2: “The ‘higher’ you ride, the harder you fall.”

(4) “See you along the I-O-Way.”
