Something I have been mulling over. Does getting a motorbike give each of us that feeling of being young again, seeing how fast we can go, take that corner etc. I am not talking bout the guys who ride 150+ on the highways all the time, but those of us who would be riding normally, then feel bored or get an itch, wait till road is clear and then open the accel, speed etc and have wondered if it is just curiosity in general, or is it the feeling we get from riding that makes us test the bike. I was a hoon in my younger years, I lost my right to drive and learnt from it and in the last 12yrs I have not had a single fine. I drive what I consider normally. No stupid crap like older times. However hop on my bike, got some km under me and even with L on the back, I waited till not a car in sight and had some fun, then back to sitting on speed limit, then a sharp bend with a suggested limit of 30, I saw as a challenge, could I do it at 50. Often I wonder if it is just me in general wired to test boundaries, the adrenaline you get etc. I know when I get a litre bike, I will go to a quiet road off the hwy and "test" it out. However I won't ride flat out all the time. So is it that we all feel young again on bikes so do things we wouldn't normally or are some of us just wired for that rush of adrenaline and danger. Sadly for me I think it is a little of both.
