I've read "Zen and the Art of Maintenance", and can say it's one the best books I've read, ever. It's actually more of a philosophy book, but has much to offer. Good reading.

A quote from "Zen" that fits in perfectly with Greg and I's ride the other day.

Robert M. Pirsig, Author of "ZEN" said:

So we navigate mostly by dead reckoning, and deduction from what clues we find. I keep a compass in one pocket for overcast days when the sun doesn't show directions and have the map mounted in a special carrier on top of the gas tank where I can keep track of miles from the last junction and know what to look for.

We were trying to deduce which way was east. I said we should listen to the sun, and praise it's wisdom. Greg decided to listen to the map, after 15 minutes of riding, we realized the sun was right. Ahhh, but the damage had been done. Greg has pissed off the sun, the sun decided to go away and the sky became overcast.

:) Just bustin yer balls Greg, remember to listen to the sun! :)
