Truly a Passion

As i was sitting in my garage this evening, it dawned on me that i have been riding sportbikes for 6 years this month. I know to a lot of people, they have been riding as long as i have been alive, but to be honest it feels like it was just yesterday that i threw my leg over my first sportbike.
When i think about all of the other hobbies and interest that i have accumulated over the past couple years nothing really compares to the feeling i get when i ride my bike.
The countless miles i've ridden, the numerous tire changes.....and knee pucks i have gone through really bring a smile to my face. Mcdonalds said it best when they said "I'm lovin it".

There is nothing more enjoyable then cocking my leg over my F4 and going out on a solo mission. I ride bikes at work, but nothing really is close. I get no joy out of driving cars, that feeling vanished years ago. My passion is my family and my motorcycles. God, does that sound sad??

There are times when I ride and feel completely connected to the bike, one entity.

That is why I ride.

My perfect day......
I surf in the morning, take a nice ride in the afternoon, then the rest of
the day is all good. Too bad work has to limit my fun for the weekends.

Hi, I just got back from a 350km ride with my mates on other MV's, 996's and 1098's. Perfect weather, great back roads, and I feel totally energised. Brilliant.
I have a ride day in a week, and as you say, I am also loving it!
