Metaphor: 1. a. A figure of speech in which a term is transferred from the object it ordinarily designates to an object it may designate only by implicit comparison or analogy.
(What in the HELL does that mean??)
I originally wanted to make this blog a series of motorcycle metaphors, but I quickly realized I 'm not a word smith (M) or clever enough to think up that many metaphors.
Or my attention “to grasp a concept” (Dead Metaphor) would die like a road hog in deep despair.
(I think this is a mixed metaphor) (See, this is why I don't do this...I'm confused)
And at this writing I can only think of one I had heard a while back:
“No matter what your parents tell you, It's ok to rev your own engine as high as you want, and you won't burnout your headlight.”
I'll let you figure that one out.
One of the best motorcycle metaphors was Mark Harmon in the movie “Summer School”.
(Buy the DVD, I'm too old to remember the whole thing)
Or if you have any other motorcycle metaphors ??. (There's that asking for comments thing again)
