There is truly nothing like riding a motorcycle. The first time I drove in a sports car, my first vehicle in high school, I was hooked on "being there". That's how I think of it. The closed cab of a car is like watching it on TV. Feeling the wind, the sounds, even the rain means it's real. A motorcycle is one big step more real than a sports car. You can lean, feel the wind on your face, pull over on some side road, stop about anywhere.... and did I mention the camaraderie? We wave at each other, get in long conversations, make plans to go somewhere, and tell stories. Oh man, the stories.... Yeh, wouldn't trade it.
