Many people don’t give much thought to what really makes motorcycling cool.
Here are 23 things that we think make motorcyclists and motorcycling great.
- Those kids on the back seat of the school bus never wave to you when you're in your car.
- Your worst day on a motorcycle is better than your best day in a car.
- It's kind of fun to be anonymous in your helmet.
- Your neighbors think you're a little crazy.
- Riding through a rain shower in waterproof gear gives you that bring-it-on feeling of smugness.
- Most of the time when you get on your bike, you're heading out to do something fun.
