Some people don't connect with it. Some people do.
Some people like their wekend cafe rides with mates. Some people want to fill out thier days with riding.
Some people want to push the limit in the dirt. Some people like to push the limit on tar.
Some people commute. Some people do it full time.
Some people need the slickest and most expensive machinery. Some people need any shitbox they can fabricate.
Some people get thier rocks off on lap times. Some people get thier rocks off on presentation.
Adventure Riding is doing something a little different. It doesn't make you special or more attuned to a human inner nature. It is doing the thing that you might be a bit scared of, but utimately love. I reckon that's pretty much the only difference.
Your first overnighter on a road you don't know...
Your first weekender at a place you havn't booked into...
Your first full week on roads you don't know, at pubs and campsites you can't remember...
That ride when you kept dropping your bike but kept on...
Dirt features heavily on the Australian ADV area because it is something alot of 30+ riders are cool with but the young-un's probably don't know (only becasue Govt regs never let them). And these days you don't need to crank up a dirt road to get to any major town on the east side of Australia. You do it on purpose.
Just ride the fucking thing, and if you feel like it's an adventure, it probably is.
