Back when I was a teenager, I had friends who had bikes. We'd all get out and take turns on each others bikes, not really knowing what I was doing, or wearing anything close to enough protective gear, I Loved it. 20 plus years later, most of my good friends ride or have ridden and I got the itch again and after several "conversations" with my wife, I made the choice. 4500 miles since April and loving every minute of it!
Its the freedom, the feel, the time to yourself, an escape, an adventure and mostly its Fun!
