Why we ride

January 24, 2017

We all love riding motorcycles but why do we do it? It’s not something we often think about since we are usually too busy enjoying the many pleasures of two-wheeled travel. We decided to ask everyone at IMTBIKE why they ride and here is what they said:

Riding a motorcycle is meditation in motion… and a great way to spend some quality time with myself!

Because when it rains you get wet, when it’s hot you sweat, when it’s cold you freeze…but you just keep riding in spite of it all.

For me, a motorcycle is alive. I hear its breath at idle, I feel its heart beat as the engine warms, and on that perfect road of infinite curves I try to understand its soul…

I like riding because I feel free. I can ride at any time without worrying about the traffic or where to park. I love the feeling of being constantly alert while also enjoying the views, the curves, everything around me is fabulous.

Well, it’s interesting, when it comes to bikes I like AAAALL of them. With other things there’s always a bit of variety with what you like and don’t, but with motorcycles it’s not an issue. Why do I ride? My soul asks for it!
