Happy Birthday to you OPM

OPM T-Shirt on Handsome Model

Yes indeed, Observations of a Perpetual Motorcyclist has reached its 1st Birthday.

Now that’s extraordinary for two reasons; I have stayed focused for a whole year; and you have all stuck with me for the ride. So thank you to you all for reading, liking, contributing and commenting. Without the OPM community it would be a pretty pointless undertaking, so my gratitude is genuine and heartfelt.


So here are a few highlights from the past year.

  • OPM was “hit” 35,786 times, which incredibly, was also the exact same number of times Muhammad Ali’s opponents were hit.
  • The Top 5 visiting countries are;
  1. Australia with 12,713 hits
  2. United States with 12,533
  3. United Kingdom 2,161
  4. Canada 1563
  5. Malaysia with 654


  • My favourite internet search engine terms that have resulted in people ending up at OPM are;
  1. “famous quote pessimist wind is blowing too hard realistic steady sails it is a windy day”
  2. “changing spark plugs is bullshit if you don’t change them all you’re full of shit”
  3. “motorcycle idling orgasm”

I didn’t make any of those up!
