Hi All-Things seem to be a bit quiet so I thought I would post up some thoughts I had following my recent milestone birthday on a life that many will not understand.
I own motorcycles because of personal life choice.
One day when I am a bit older than now and I cant ride motorcycles anymore,they will be in my workshop as a trophy of my memories.
I have met peaple who taught me something and have the same spirit.
I meet people now who get wisdom from me.
I get wet,I get cold and I have been hot.
I have been afraid and have even hurt myself.
But also,I laughed out loud with the wind.
I spoke a thousand times with myself and God.Still do.
I have made curves that my riding mates would be proud of;other times I made curves that scared the hell out of me.
I have stopped many times to view a landscape or seascape.
I have spoken with perfect strangers.
I go out with frustrations inside and return home with a feeling of absolute peace in my heart.
I always think how dangerous riding is,knowing that the meaning of courage is to advance even feeling fear.
Every time I go up to one of my bikes I think about how wonderful a feat of engineering they are.
I have learned through gestures to communicate with other riders.
I spend money that I do not have,I have given up many things,but its all been worth it.
My bikes are not a means of transportation but pieces of alloy with wheels that I am blessed with,they are part of who I am.
Bless my friends and their joy of great people and motorcycles!

This reflects the thoughts of most of us and has been eloquently put into words so it can be shared.  We are all enriched by reading it.

Agree completely with you Chris and I'm afraid to say that these days my riding is confined to my Postie bike, but even so when I lane split to the front of the line of cars and pull up next to a young guy on a sports bike or a bloke on a Harley (if he can hear me), I always say G'day and have a brief chat while we're waiting for the green light.
Most of the riders that I encounter feel the same as me....that riding is riding, no matter what you're on or how old you are.

P.S.  I still pay the annual permit fee for my 500C, just in case I might feel up to taking it for a spin.  happy0062
