Talking Why do you ride?

For me, I wanted to start riding because of my dad, he has 40 years riding exp, and I just took after him. I love the freedom you feel when riding. What do you feel, and why did you start riding?

Because of the sound of the engine, the lean angles required to achieve maximum turn ability, the sexy looks of a well tuned machine capable of beating some of the most expensive cars on take off...and of course

Oh and because it relaxes me no matter how bad a day ive had. Started riding because my dad rode a long time ago when I was 6 or so and ive always been fascinated with being on two wheels.

The thrill and the freedom, and no matter what or how bad things are, fighting like to survive the next corner and making it gives me the greatest feeling ever.
