The road from Geelong to Mt Waverly is long and boring, about 100km each way. All hwy. It gets quite cold for about 50km of the run, almost as cold as Canberra. No matter how much I rug up I am still a little cold. I have a Lease/Work car, big olf Nissan Patrol that I enjoy, but I prefer the bike, why..........? Driving in, warm, confortable, sit back, kick back, until you hit the traffic, then it get a littlke tedious. YOur fingers start dancing with the CD and radio in a vein attempt to find something interesting. The traffic sludges along, slowly, boring, frustrating... but, alas, i am confortable in a suit..... Riding in, back is sore, cold, also boring, load, windy, dangeours.... Get to work and have to change from thermals and riding gear into shirt and tie.... So, why do I do it.... The GRIN factor..... When I get to the traffic, splitting lanes, heart in mouth waiting for that car to move out... Wright wrist dancing with the throttle, fingers poised for the break grab.... Body position upright and cautious.... Enormous amounts of energy expended weaving through traffic like sperm to the glory box........ The sheer happiness and terror experienced from point a to point B ove rthe period of an hour.... Every emotion one can think of..... The almost daily close encounter with a car, truck or bus.... The constant reminder that at any moment some young lass may wipe you from existance.... And then, those close calls that you survive.... The adrenalin and excitement you feel afterward as your ride more agressively in an attempt to relinquish the fear felt..... To bring things back to normality......Thats why..... That is why I love riding to work.
