Why do I ride,Because science.
« on: 01/19/19 10:03AM »
Here is a short article that points to a study that shows what we all know, taking a ride makes you feel better. As soon as I walk the dogs Im going for a ride   :31: :17:

Those of us who’ve been riding for several decades I believe knew this way back when...

We know it intuitively but without hard studies with evidence to back them up we can't "know it" beyond a personal feeling. No matter how grounded in reality it seems to be perhaps with such studies we can see more motorcyclist on the road instead of less.

My bike has been in the shop getting the engine rebuilt for 2 months (parts for a 2008 Triumph engine are not readily available off the shelf), having to drive the 40 miles to work (which includes Ortega) leaves me much more tense and aggravated with people in cars, who I would normally be able to ride around.  And I do notice I usually only think about riding when doing so, all the other distractions of life are put aside.  Supposed to be done next week, YAY!


BTW, have to say I'm quite happy with my Triumph, having put over 120,000 miles on it in 7 years, and thankful for the extended warranty I bought which still has 6 months left on it.  Actually very few issues.  Then engine was feeling a bit tired and the ring lands finally broke on 1 cylinder.  Unfortunately the warranty only covered that one piston and cylinder and teardown.  Love the bike, so I went for a complete rebuild, the extra 3k out of my pocket is a lot cheaper than any new, or newer used bike, and if I can get another 120k out of it, I'll be a happy guy!

Wow, Rick.  That's cool.  Crash free miles, too.

Ride on,
