B-Kinger - I think you nailed it.* Motorcycles.* Nothing like it.* Well, maybe there is one other thing I can think of.....* 8)

These memories of which you speak, they are meant to sustain us through the Dark Months.* Yin and Yang.* It's all good.

You know that first real ridable day in spring, you know the one I'm talking about.........sunny, 65 degrees..spring rains have washed away all the salt dirt and sand. It's like your bike is brand new again and so are you, hell, you look forword to the biker wave, even the asshat cagers don't get on your nerves. Smiling in your helmet, you are like a bear waking from hibernation, hungry for the power between your legs, not a care in the world and all of lifes problems seem to be on hold.
Trying to explain this to someone who does not ride is futile, they don't get it and never will. None of my friends ride and they all think I have death wish. This is all something we as motorcycilsts share, a common bond. pretty cool huh.

NOW COME ON SPRING!

Yeah, the non-bikers don't understand the personal satisfaction that comes from the simple joy of riding a motorcycle.* Moreover, wait till you get to be my age (old).* The aches/pains I come home from work with seem to melt away during a ride.* Forty miles out, I'll stop for a smoke, and almost by accident, it dawns on me:* That ache is gone!* Definitely very therapeutic.* No death wish, just the opposite.* I love the smells, sounds, sights that simply aren't there in a car.

Which leads me to another question: Do bikers in warm climates, who can ride year 'round, enjoy it as much as we do?* Just wondering...................

I think it's like living in southern* California, they might take the weather for granted.

Yes and no... I lived in Florida for a few years and while you do take it "for granted" you still know how lucky you are.* I appreciate every mile i can spend on a bike...

and no, there are things that only bikers understand... riding is something that only a rider understands... the connection between a rider and a bike is unique... we are a group that will push the limits since we are addicted to the rush... I for one, hope to ride until the day I can't anymore.* And I'm glad I am out of the poser stage... now I ride bikes for comfort and performance, not because they look good.

If they look good, it's a bonus... haha.
