Why are motorcycles cool? Is it because of the danger perceived in riding on two wheels compared to driving inside a cage? Is it just an American Cultural Phenomenon created by the Fonz from “Happy Days”? Could it be that in the United States most people perceive motorcycles as a toy rather than a tool? We Americans love our toys. Maybe motorcycles are cool because those riding them are just chill people with a charismatic flare? If you have an idea why motorcycles are cool then respond back to me.
On the subject, I believe Motorcycles don’t make a person cool but they can make a garage a place one wants to visit more often. Sometimes in the middle of the winter I will find excuses to go out in my garage and hang out near my bike. Even when it’s minus 20 degrees with 5 foot of blowing snow outside, I still find myself dreaming of the ride. Do you have this Illness? It’s a sickness that affects many of us; a pertinacious Fascination with motorcycles. Yes, I am TwoTireTirade and I am addicted to motorcycles. Luckily my sickness is not contagious but can be infectious to those with a predisposition to rally against the norm. I find that it’s a love it or hate it kind of adoration. Most people want nothing to do with motorcycling but then there are a few that sweat gasoline and breath in exhaust.
For those of you able to ride this weekend be safe. Let the ride continue!!!!
