Bikers Revelations

By: Maricon Williams

I have loved motorcycles from the moment I have mounted on itand roam around the neighborhood. Even though it has caused meseveral falls, bruises and injuries still, I consider it as apassion. I like the feel of dominion. The way I can controlpower and speed. Learning to control something that was, atfirst, frightening is satisfying.

Learning to control the motorcycle involves both physical andmental prowess. To make turns, rider must lean forward to fightthe forces of acceleration and lean backward to fight the forcesof deceleration. Concentration is likewise essential so as tofocus on the road and other factors that may affect the ride.

Knowing the needs of the bike and knowing your own needs is agood starting ground. The bike must be treated as an extensionof the rider's mind and body. It must respond to the rider'scommand and will.

Motorcycles are universally appealing. Young and old alike arefascinated by the thrill and fun that they are offering. It isdifferent to riding cars in the sense that the involvement withthe machine brings greater joy to riders. Involvement makes itmore addicting. It is as if you are riding with a vehicleequipped with manual transmission. Whatever the consequences ofyour command are, you will also be part of it.

Your body, your mind are united to achieve a goal and adestination. If those objectives are met, no matter how hard thejourney, no matter how perilous the adventure was, it still paysoff when you get it!

Skilled riders come in waves. Some young amateurs are now evenreplacing the guys on top. However, the latter will not put upan easy battle. I am seeing a brighter future in the ridingcommunity..
