We are going to need the video to believe it tho. My brother in law is the owner of the Mopar truck that shows up at your races.

Good little read on AutoBlog about riding a motorcycle.

Carter Edman recently wrote something for the ever-excellent Ride Apart that neatly sums up the allure of the motorcycle. The piece was an open letter to those fine people who love nothing more than to regale riders with every horror story they've ever heard about a bike, and while the text is littered with plenty of "hell yes!" moments for those of us with a pair of riding gloves to our name, one paragraph in particular struck me dead on.

You want to know what's truly dangerous? Not taking any risks. Hanging out with like-minded middle-of-the-roaders. Absorbing the same brain-ossifying shit from media factories every day. Jogging. Putting helmets, flotation devices, and auto-deploy epi-pens on your kids every time they leave the house. Passivity. Not paying attention to where your car, or your life, or your country is going.

How true. How many of us wake up, fall into our routine, fall back asleep and repeat the process the next day? For me, the best part of riding a motorcycle, aside from the excellent hair that accompanies a three-hour ride, is the challenge. It's more than a risk. Every time I jump on the bike, it teaches me something about control, patience, grip and momentum. I've been riding for over three years now, and grabbing the handlebars requires no less focus now than it did on day one. Every ride has the potential to serve up a situation that puts me out of my comfort zone, and for that, I love it.
