This is for all the motorcycle riders…

Beginning with ATC to the memory of Keith who once owned this room and all of you in between smile
 

THE LIFE THAT MANY WILL NOT UNDERSTAND:

I own a motorcycle because of a personal life choice.

One day when I am very old and when I can not ride anymore, it will be in my garage as a trophy of my memories.

I have met people who taught me something and have the same spirit.

I meet people now who get wisdom from me.

I get wet,

I get cold,

And I have been hot,

I was afraid,

I fell,

And I stood up,

I even hurt myself,

But also, I laughed out loud with the wind.

I spoke a thousand times with myself and still do.

I sang and shouted with joy like a madman,

And yes ... sometimes I cried.

I have seen wonderful places because of motorcycles.

I have made curves that even my dad would be proud of; other times I made curves full of terror.

I stopped many times to see a landscape.

I spoke with perfect strangers.

I go out with frustrations inside and return home with a feeling of absolute peace in my heart.

I always think how dangerous it is, knowing that the meaning of courage is to advance even feeling fear.

Every time I go out to my ride I think about how wonderful it is. I learned through gestures to communicate with other riders.

I spend money that I do not have, I gave up many things, but it's all worth it...

My bike is not a means of transportation but is a piece of steel, aluminum and plastic with wheels that I am blessed with, it's part of who I am.

I love my friends and the joy of great people & motorcycles! 

... May the angels guard my travels, for they know the road ahead of me... 

 

Hope you all find a bit of you in this..

W

Amen to that, nice poem. My motorcycle is my sanity and my zen, I won't stop riding until I'm forced to.

That’s really cool Wendy. It expresses exactly what motorcycle riders feel. Thanks for posting this.

Thanks for remembering Keith, Wendy.  He did love his two motorcycles - the one he completely built by himself and the one we bought together just a year before he died.  I only rode with him once after he was diagnosed with cancer but I can still picture that day and the smile on his face (and I have a few photos of that day to remember him by too).
