For me it the Zen or whatever you call it of riding. Even on the track at 140 mph. Riding clears my mind and relieves any stress and worries that I have. I don't think of danger. Yes, riding is dangerous, but that's not why I ride.

I'll also add that I guess part of it is going against the grain. I think there are 2 or 3 percent of the entire population that ride here in the US. I'm one.

If we could just get guns, bacon and a gas powered weed eater in the mix it would be perfect!

Naaah its not the reason for me. To me it was a new challenge to try and I wanted to be the 1st in my family to have a bike and do it right. Riding really helps with the ADD lol my mind is constantly going, and my body is constantly moving.

I am on of those people that more excited the closer I get to death and survive. So yes I do like the danger, but in short amounts because it gets stressful.

This is a great question btw
