Putting ‘BIKER’ On The Census As Your Religion
It’s coming around again soon – the Gubbinment will be sending you a load of questions at great expense to the taxpayers so that… umm… they know more stuff about us?
The important thing this time around is that when they ask me what religion I am, I am going to say it loud and proud that I am A Biker.
The road is my God, and the pathway there, too.
When I ride my bike it is a spiritual experience. It’s a comfort to me when I feel lost or down.
Riding ‘in the zone’ is like a form of meditation. It’s Zanshin – total awareness – as I try to see my surroundings before they happen, listening to every roar and click from my bike and trying my best to make sure as I execute my religion that nobody else is adversely affected by it.
We even have Priests – the mechanics who will fix up our trusty steeds and get us back on track.
A lot of us even just ride on Sundays! And we have those living Gods amongst us:
And think of the benefits or getting our religion recognised!
Would a petrol station be allowed to force us to remove our helmet if it’s religious clothing?
Could they continue forcing us to pay such high tax on petrol – essentially taxing our religion?
It is my form of worship. Being a Biker means I enjoy life, and get more out of it because of my choices.
We’re family out there – nodding a greeting as we pass total strangers simply because they’re on a bike. Sure, there are different faction within the Biking religion – the Sportbikers have some hostility towards Harley Davidson riders, and everyone dislikes Scooter riders. Motard riders are just thugs. We’re not going to go to war over it, though, and many of us treat everyone under the Biker banner equally, as it’s something that unifies us all.
If you ride a bike, I bet you’ve put more effort into that than you have the made-up-deity, war-causing, only-when-it-suits-you religion that someone decided they’d choose for you before you were out of nappies!
It’s got to be done!
It is the time to show the World what we REALLY believe in!
Just put that single word as your religion: Biker.
