Riding a motorcycle at speed is an enormously complex activity, one that floods a rider with a multitude of sensory inputs and requires a constant stream of split-second decisions. It's a pursuit that insists upon near perfection in execution and rewards mistakes with an immediate and undue harshness.
- Jeff Hughes, Sport Rider Magazine -

The act of riding a motorbike in the 21century is one of the western worlds last great freedoms.
- Performance Bikes Magazine -

Riding motorcycle is that brief time when nothing else matters but me.
That is the time when my soul heals, and my stresses organize.
It is that time that no one has the right to invade.
It is that time that I am as close to God as I will ever be here on earth.

Riding motorcycles is one of the most difficult multitask activities known to man, and not everyone is wired for it. - Keith Code -

"With the throttle screwed on, there is only the barest margin, and no room at all for mistakes. It has to be done right... and that's when the strange music starts, when you stretch your luck so far that fear becomes exhilaration and vibrates along your arms." -Hunter S. Thompson

When you're traveling, you are what you are right there and then. People don't have your past to hold against you. No yesterdays on the road.
