Because of the well known statement about never seeing a MC outside a psychiatrist's office.

Yeah, somebody gave me a pair of motorcycle gloves one time, so I bought a bike.

Bikes just make sense!

When I was 5 years old I was riding in the backseat of our buick. Driving down Military drive in San Antonio Tex on a Saturday mourning.

I heard my mother talking to my sister about how dangerous something was, she was in the front seat also. That got my attention so I looked over the top of the front seat.

There I was, standing on the back seat with my arms on the top of the front seat( WAY before seat belt laws) , or child restraint laws either.

Three dudes on Red step through Cushmen scooters were riding in front of us.

I can remember to this day how that struck my 5 year old brain as being the coolest thing I had ever seen.

That moment burned into my heart a love for this sport of ours.

They where part of some kind of club, dressed in white shirts, blue jeans, and black loafers with white soxs ... rebels of the day I am sure!

My mother was against all of these things for her only baby boy but, it was too late, I was hooked and have stayed hooked all my life.

So Cushmen riding dudes, if you are still around and reading this,,,,THANKS!!!

I ride because I do, no other reason.

PineyMountainRacing, turbojim, klaviator - Hot days and relaxed scooter riding have lead to this guy being bad and not always going ATGATT. Yep, i'm a bad, bad boy. Point taken ;)

DC2wheels - Agreed! Riding is some of the best medicine for de-stressing.

N-Id-Jim - Wow! Where was that shot taken?

RBnite - Awesome story, thanks for sharing that.

One of the girls I ride with in NC never wears gloves, even when its 20 deg F. IDK how she stands it, shes probably only 120 pounds. After head injury, hand / foot injuries cause the most misery and disability in moto accidents. I might run a bike down the road a short distance without a helmet, like if I've just done some maintenance, but I NEVER do it without gloves LOL.

Nice video though, perfect day. Peeps that don't ride don't understand. Be safe!

Motorcycles are not cheap, but they are cheaper than therapy.

Scooter

Aren't you on a scooter? I think there is a forum somewhere for those.

Motorcycles are dangerous. I don't ride.




I ride because it's fun. Pretty simple actually.
