It's always a bit scary to read about your cops. Here in good old Europe I get off the bike, take off my helmet and don't have to worry about where my hands are or in what pocket I will reach at the next moment.
Into the dark side of our nature to look we all need. The energy, the passion there is. Afraid of that people are. Pieces of us it holds busy denying we are.
Riding is flowing through traffic like water through a rocky river bed.
