Why we ride

Why do this? Why do that? Why ride bikes? If you need a reason... Go on, read it. You know you’re curious. The golden glint of the evening spring sun dances across my visor, reflected across the damp-patched tarmac as I begin to sit the bike up post-apex. The throttle grip feels good in my gloved hand, everything familiar and comfortable. The...

In my early days of biking  most men just had a two wheeler or  sidecar combination till they could afford a car . Most hard -core bikers ,especially in the late 50s & 60s were members of clubs ,such as the "69" club in London or  rockers who hung around in gangs frightening your Nan"s cat  ! . But I find today that  Bikes don"t get into the blood with the young guys like when we were kids , we slept under our bikes while away at weekends , rode them to work , dated girls on them , and repaired them ourselves . A  car was a thing for women & old men , like your  Dad in his late 30s . I have always shouted the joy of biking from the rooftops & agreed it was the best thing you could do with your clothes on . I am getting to the point of retiring from my hobby ? of over 50 years because of my health , but  god knows what I will do if / when it happens , I  doubt  we will be replaced in any numbers as barriers are put up against  our  lifestyle every day .
