Top ten reasons YOU like to ride?

Lets hear em ... ill start (in no partuicular order)
  1. All of the sensations (feeling the wind, smelling the trees etc)
  2. Track Days!
  3. Having 100+ ponies in the palm of my hand
  4. Fulfilling my need .... my need for speed
  5. Riding out and hanging out ... posing is king
  6. Showing off to whomever is impressed
  7. The comraderie with other riders
  8. Weaving in and out of traffic
  9. Did I say Track Days?
  10. Riding behind a fast woman with a great ass *

*especially the 100mph moonings going down North ave

Don't know if I have a Top 10 persay but for me, the way all else seems to vanish in my mind other than concentrating on riding is theraputic as hell for me - I read a sig on some board (might have even been here) that summed it up, "As I shifted into 6th gear, I forgot everything she said"

That and the fuckin pure power that is Busa - Love those 70 mph roll ons that just about throw my skinny ass off the back

"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming WOW, what a RIDE !!"

1) It's cheaper than hookers and drugs.
2) Life is too boring without risks.

-That excitement I feel while getting ready to saddle up.
-Waiting for the guys to show up at the meeting spot on those early weekend rides, knowing a day full of adventures lie ahead of us.
-Hitting some nice open road twisties while enjoying some nice sceneries with some of my closest buddies....just priceless.
-BS'ing during gas stops and lunch stops.
-Something about motorcycle exhaust fume smell that gets me excited too...I have no idea why.
-Safely passing multiple cars with a simple twist of the wrist.
-The smell of cow and horse manure while ripping through the country roads
-The fact that when you're riding, it's all about the ride, never the destination (so you always try to take the longer route if possible).

It's the closest sensation to flying without leaving the ground or injecting/ingesting/inhaling something.

Everyone Exaggerates

1. Cars throw you around like baggage.....but you DANCE with a bike.

2. For me, focus = relaxation

3. Cannot focus more than a track day, I LOVE track days.

4. Driving a car is like watching the world on TV, riding you are part
of the world, sight, sound temperature, humidity...good and bad.

5. Any bonehead can drive a car, riding a bike well requires mastery.

6. Riding together with a couple like-minded friends...... flying in formation.

7. Gas stops after flying in formation, let the BS commence !

8. The good kind of tired a days riding makes you.

9. My Wife is a *great* passenger, love doing the dance two-up.

10. I'm in love with the machines ! ..... bikes are cool.



I hate winter and it's only just started.
