I am sure many of you are asked “Why Do You Ride?”. There’s
the old saying “If I have to explain it to you, you wouldn’t
understand”. I recall reading once a magazine entitled “Robb
Report Motorcycling” and reading an article that spoke to me as
a motorcyclist. I have saved this article for some time and I’ll
reprint some of it here:
“Motorcycling removes us from our everyday lives, uniting, in one
stroke, body, mind, wind, and road. The sights, sounds and smells experienced
from riding a motorcycle, gets us closer to the scenery and our surroundings.
The freedom and sense of individualism brought to us as motorcyclists,
are somehow enhanced by the comradery shared with fellow riders. The bond
among motorcyclists meeting on the road, is envied by others. Motorcycles
deliver a pure and essential experience that moves each and every one
of us in different ways that defy explanation.
Whether we ride at high speed on a sport bike, or whether we savor the
experience of a tour bike; whether we revel in the comradery of the cruiser
crowd, or the coolness of a custom chopper; the simple truth is that riding
a motorcycle enhances all of the pleasures - intellectual, spiritual and
sensual - that makes us feel truly alive.”
I wish I could remember that quote, word for word, so that every time someone
I know or someone I meet asks me why I ride motorcycles, I could rattle
off those words. It couldn’t be better said.
