What is a "real" motorcyclist? It's a rider who spends days, weekends, and weeks on the road or on the trail figuring it all out for himself by himself. Dealing with the unexpected and having a sense of humor while doing it will keep you young at heart and yearning to ride.
The set backs, the accomplishments, and the dangers inherent to motorcycling will have you finding out what you're made of in a hurry so no matter what happens, keep smiling .
Spending weeks on the road or days on the trail can be surprisingly isolating, but I’ve managed to make hundreds of new friends along the way. If you can't get out there and make a few new friends of your own, this short read can give you a few laughs in between your adventures.
