Motorcycling as a meditation

Hope this is the right place to put this: I am sure this has been talked about before.
I am studying mindfullness and forms of meditation in one of my classes and really loving it. I have always found riding a motorcycling as a form of mindfullness and meditation. By mindfulness here I mean "Moment to moment, non-judgemental awareness, the direct, non-conceptual knowing of experience as it unfolds.......(John Kabat Zinn) Basically, just observing life as it happens and not get wrapped up in it.
So, ADV riders, I need your help writing a grad level paper. I am looking for feed back from folks on their experience of riding. My question is: What is it about riding that brings you peace?
If I can use your words and translate them in my paper (I will absolutley PM you for your persmission) in a line or two, I would be greatful.

I also plan to create or link to the region I am in (boston) to see if folks in my area would be willing to go out for drink to chat about the subject. A kind of laid back interview. Beers on me of course.

I am not soliticing, making any money, or publishing a paper........maybe lol.
I love this subject and look forward to writing about it!

Thank you all for any words of wisdom.
