Do as Tiger says, not as Tiger does

It is good to be Tiger Woods — especially when Mark Steinberg is your agent. Woods has just inked a reported US$8 million deal to endorse Hero motorcycles, the New Delhi-based motorcycle manufacturer that has become the title sponsor of his
But get this: Steinberg told reporters at the Hero World Challenge at Isleworth G&CC that for all that money, Woods will neither be required to appear at the India Open, nor wear the Hero logo on his shirts or his golf bag.
And while Woods has posed for advertising photographs atop a motorcycle, the famous golfer has never ridden one — and joked on Tuesday that he has no plans to start riding one.
As the Ukrainian-born former Soviet comedian Yakov Smirnoff would say, "what a country!!"

I don't appear at the India open or wear the Hero logo on my shirts, and I've never ridden one of their motorcycles. I guess I'll start looking for the check in the mail.
As a wise man once said, "Damn it feels good to be a gansta."
I used to ride a donor cycle. Amazing how automobile driver don't see you. Sold it after several close calls.

I've never ridden on a motorcycle, either - mostly because I don't wish to become the next head injury statistic.
I miss my motorcycle. I didn't want to get rid of it, but where i was moving didn't allow them and i had nowhere to store it so i sold it. :( Sad X
