How would you feel?

How would you feel if motorcycling was taken from you and you could never do it again? This question loomed in my mind today as I watched a Yellow 03-04 SV650 run through one of my favorite corners on my journey to work. I immediately teared up. Matter of fact, it is hard for me to even write this cause I am tearing up right now. Sometimes it is very difficult to watch people doing the things you loved so much. This is especially true for me. Is it depression? Who knows, I know I would never do anything to harm myself or others. So I guess it isn’t. What is it that motorcycling has done to me? What makes one so passionate for something? I do believe that there are people that take it as seriously as I do and I consider them to be the real riders. I am working on ways to help remedy the situation though. I just got a new 350Z Grand Touring as seen here. I plan on equipping it accordingly so that I can run with the bikes on the SMRs in hopes of making me feel whole again.

I guess one just tries to continue to be apart of it in some way.

I feel the same way about some things. I think i am still a little bitter. I had a full softball scholarship and I lost it senior year because i broke my elbow. I still look back and think "man, i could be in a good school, doing what i love" but you can't look back. Things happen for a reason. You just have to have faith in the world.

a friend of me was telling about a guy who was paralyzed from the waste down, he modified the living out of his bike, it has two legs on electric motors, that act like landing gear when the bike rools to stop and retract slowly as he pulls away from a stop....
i know i would try watever i had to to get back say that motorbikin is in my blood is a severe understatement, like my bike i have lots of metal in my body, im missing bones, i feel the pain everyday of what it means to be so passionate about something that your willing to sacrifice your body and possibly life for it..i truly believe that without my bike i would not be me,

i know this is selfish of me cuz im only missing use of my left arm but i dont want it back, because hardship does not build character, it reveals it. but id be lying to say that sometimes i dont cry when i wake up after a dream of riding my bike with both hands, when i wake i can feel the grip in my left hand, my palm cool from the sweat evaporating as the wind passes through it, my fingertips on the clutch...but life goes on, either we roll with punches and come out swingin or get left behind

Man. I never really thought about it. It would be very hard to give up something I feel passionate about. I would always keep it close to my heart and every chance to be a part of it , I would. But to not be able to fully enjoy it....My hat goes off to you guys who are in that position. I really liked what 1hander said "hardship does not build character, it reveals it." Thats a profound statement......I salute you guys...

"I get a total charge out of inspiring others to follow their dreams and not to fear change. Embrace it. Realize that money isn't the end-all, be-all. What is important, what really has value, is Time. As motorcyclists, we all face increased risks on the road, and on the track. Do something with your time; don't have a bag full of regrets when the train comes to a stop. "
