I've just been out for a run on my motorbike. Not for any particular reason. Not to to any particular place. I went out on my motorbike just because I wanted to. I wanted to go for a quick run on my motorbike because I enjoy riding it. I also use it to go to work (day job). Sometimes it is raining and I could go in the car, but still I go on the motorbike. Why? Because I enjoy riding it.
I enjoy the fresh air. I enjoy the feeling of freedom. I enjoy getting through the traffic quicker than in the car. I enjoy it because it is exciting. I enjoy getting dressed up to ride the bike. I enjoy the fact that people think 'bikers' are a bit wild.
You know, I enjoy riding the motorbike for just about the same reasons as I enjoy my boat. Perhaps that's why so many Ribsters have boats and bikes!
The bike. Well, up until about 10 days ago I had a Triumph Trident. I sold it and brought.....wait for it.....a Royal Enfield Bullet 350cc single!
Of course this reminds me that another simmilarity bikers and boaters have is that they tend to be a little eccentric.
