    Default The Joy of Control

    I have been riding to work daily. One thing that I have always enjoyed about riding, whether two or three wheels, is controlling the bike. I have never care for "as fast as it will go" riding. My joy is in acceleration/deceleration, and picking a line in a curve and staying right on it. I just simply enjoy controlling the ride. Hitting twisties and shifting down/decelerating, then shifting up as I accelerate out a curve. Love it!

    That's why we ride! Pointing a cage down the road is a mindless task. OPERATING a bike/trike has the sense of being in charge.

    That's the way, to enjoy motoring, point to the apex, throw the bike in, accellerate, next corner, and again and again. I just enjoy the total "free of mind", after a hard work week. The spyder is like my therapist....
    Only thing in the brain and body, is to eat up the road.... for me the bike is a stress reliever...
    the funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's to late to stop reading it........
