We already know this. Thanks for the post. Too bad all drivers aren't made to ride for a week. Maybe it would make for safer roads.

Quotes from the article:
"...the motorcyclist is actually transported into an entirely different state of consciousness."

"Participants revealed on questionnaires they filled out at the end of the study that their stress levels had been reduced and their mental state changed for the better [by commuting on their motorcycles]."

"...By using motorcycles more in our life, we can have positive effects on our brains and minds."

So, now we have confirmation to what we already knew: motorcyclists are superior beings.

Riding is like doing track days in my car. It forces me to think more fluidly.

FSM, I love it!

...and the wife said I was just increasing my chances of getting killed. I guess if she rode she would be smart enough to understand!

This is awesome. I'll be looking for an improvement in my designs when I start riding to work.
