All motorcycle enthusiasts enjoy a culture and a lifestyle all their own. How that lifestyle is defined is different for each rider. For some, calling themselves a biker means that they have ridden for thousands of miles on their bike. Some claim the moniker of a biker because they simple cannot stand being away from the open air, or they get antsy when they are forced to exist within a metal box like a car or a truck.
Still others claim the biker lifestyle because they love to tinker with, and improve the various motorcycles that they come in contact with. Still others identify more with the act of attending and riding through various rallies. Of course, there are also those who see the biker lifestyle as being centered on riding and riding alone. For others, there is something almost sexual about being around the motorcycles. There is a type of primal power that can only be experienced on the back of a motorcycle, and it has a way of being very, very attractive. The bottom line is that if a person is a part of the biker culture, the motorcycle and all that comes with it is an integral part of their lives.
For most true motorcycle riders, any or all of these statements can apply to them and the way that they live their life. Riding a motorcycle is more than just a Sunday hobby, even if that is the only time that you get to ride. For many bikers, riding is a way to relieve stress, a way to enjoy the freedom that only an open road and a 100cc engine can provide. Bikers will always prefer to ride instead of taking another vehicle, whether it’s just to visit our friends, or head down to the local watering hole. If you think about it, even running to the store to pick up a few items for dinner is more enjoyable on the back of a bike. After all, that’s why backpacks and saddle bags were invented.
