Beauty is skin deep and doesn't always come with soal. Age ruins beauty but not those with heart,... motorcycles with age become more beautiful. The old 73 Triumph is becoming a crowd catcher where ever is stops.

Great thread by the way. Lots of very cool posts.

I can't really articulate my love for riding but I know it's been in my heart since I was a kid. I would sticky tape playing cards to the back of my bmx wheels so it'd sound like a Harley (well, sorta haha). I'd go to the end of my street which had a very steep downhill and i'd just launch myself on the bike. I felt like a boss then. To this day, I still return to that street on my actual motorbike and I always have the biggest grin on my face when I hit the throttle down that very hill.

I'm thankful because when I'm at work sometimes I'm thinking " why do I put up with this crap" ,but when I'm on the bike I realize this is why. Work put gas in the bike.
And like Andy said ,the whole world disappears , it's just me ,my bike ,and the road

Wow, I didn't think this post would be so lively! Let's keep it going, thanks everyone!

Motorcycling can change a day, an attitude, a heart, a soul, a life. It can enlighten, it can raise up, it can also hurt and cause grief if not respected. But then, so can life itself if we don't respect it. In that I feel motorcycling is a life.

Some people say riding is a passion, or a lifestyle. For me, it is much more than a "lifestyle" because that just seems to refer to the act of wearing the gear and hanging around people with bikes. It is a life for me.

That's kinda where I would differ. It is not my lifestyle (even with a Harley). It does not set my identity, or define who I am.
I am the same with or without the bike, but I would have a big hole in my life without it.
I would not have near the joy of life if I did not have the bike.

Rode the 2012 ZX-14R for the 1st time. Holy Crap! this thing is fast! Looking to see where they hid the Supercharger. Right off the get, it's go. Feels faster than the turbo 14 which is hard to believe. Seat height is 1.5 inches lower, handles like my buddies ZX-10. It's not really a ZX-14 it's something else!
