Wink You know riding is your passion when....

How many times do our wifes, gf's, friends, coworkers, family, and all others think we are a bit insane about our passion. How about some perspectives.

You know you riding is your passion when....your coworkers ask you how your ride was every morning that the weather isn't exactly perfect.

You know you riding is your passion when....you have considered (or done!) opening your car door while the other half is driving to joke about dragging knee from the car.

You know you riding is your passion when.... you find it difficult to avoid bringing up riding in conversations to others consternation.

You know you riding is your passion when.... even though the family may hate motorcycles due to a bad experince/death/injury with a previous family member, that you still keep riding, and are a proponent for the correct and responsible way of riding.

You know you riding is your passion when.... a stranger will strick up a conversation at a gas pump about her son that wants to get a bike soon, and the first thing you do is tell her advice on types of bikes and cc's as her eyes end up glazing over. (guilty here)

You know you riding is your passion when.... you are driving to work in the cage and get stuck in traffic, and end up thinking, I could move through this traffic so much better on my bike

You know you riding is your passion when.... you think of the HOV as the motorcycle lane.

You know you riding is your passion when.... you have experienced life in a new way, outside of the cage, with all its sights, smells, and enjoyments, and you feel more in touch with your day because of it.

You know you riding is your passion when.... a car is a cage period.

You know you riding is your passion when.... you'd rather spend money on motorcycle gear than almost anything else... even though have already more than the average rider.

You know you riding is your passion when.... ????

...when you let "potential backroad routes to work" be a part of your evaluation of a new job opportunity.

...when you justify riding to work in 36 degree weather with the statement, "At least there will not be ice on the roads."
