So tonight I was riding home from work, it is a little after 10 and it is chilly and there is moisture in the air. I really don't "think" when I ride. I am too busy watching and observing people driving or walking (especially when I am near the wine bars on my route home.) My Brain is not spinning with thoughts of work, or the things I need to get done before my military weekend. I am more concerned with how the guy at the red light thinks he can be through the right turn he is making, to which he is wrong. Or the woman who is a little tipsy and walking before the light says it is safe to.
And I have one pure thought... I am truly happy. I work in a potentially depressing place. I have too much to do at home, but I love the ride. It really doesn't matter whether it is on the hardball or in the dirt. I don't want or need some brute of a bike. In some ways the simplicity of the TW is exactly what I need. A kind of therapy that cleans the grime of the job away. Or the never ending list that for that time while I ride that just disappears. So for my last thought before I go to bed is this, without the needed luxury of a motorcycle how was I this happy before. I know that I was not sad because my general nature is a fun loving guy. It was not as if I didn't have the most loving and kind wife (Which I must say she is!) I simple would not have the ability to stop thinking about all those little details that weigh us down. So my friends, please sleep well and enjoy the ride.

Riding and flying have that in common. It requires the use of your entire conscious brain to stay out of trouble. I can listen to music while riding, but I would NEVER agree to having a cellphone link in my helmet. This is why getting back into riding after retiring and selling the plane was such a natural progression....not to mention that it took 40 years off my age. :p :hello2:

I found I can not ride with out a smile of my face....I to love to ride and use it to just get away from it all, that is why I ride year round even in the rain. I find that if I don't get out at least a couple of time a week I start to feel a little off, for me I have been riding from age 5 on so I am not stopping any time soon.

I began riding at age 45. My wife gave me 25K for our 25th wedding anniversary and it changed my life.

I own a manufacturing company with employees and I love every one of them. The trouble is there is a lot of stress in business ownership, always has been and always will be
but how you handle that is key to survival.
For me, I have many methods but the motorcycle has taught me something I never knew, never did know this, that it brings relaxation to the mind and body.

Thank you for your post. It reminds me again of why we ride.

There is a method to riding that brings us into a state of mind that is a form of tranquility. Especially if we are riding straight long roads that are just lazy.

Ride safe, and keep a clear head.

Last night I had to put down my thoughts... My brain never shuts off. I am always thinking about the next duty or the next mission or whatever my Wife needs me to do. The only time I can shut it down is when I ride. I sleep better even after a short run. I am glad that Yamaha makes the TW because I by God need the therapy.

I don't even know where to begin to tell someone what a big therapeutic effect riding the T-Dub has to me! So I decided to post a picture of myself because the grin on my face says it all!
