“Good riders are thinking riders,” said moto-racing champ Reg Pridmore. We’re also poets and mystics and rebels and lovers and revivalist preachers, sometimes. We find our religion, our sense of beauty, as much on the serpentine road as in the roar of a well-tuned machine. Ours is a tribe of wanderers, seekers and finders, and two-wheeled pilgrims that occasionally—or often—like to go fast. Ironically, this means slowing down and taking a detour from the rat race, to discover where the real juicy marrow of life resides. These short “inspirational” (for lack of a better word) essays are offered as nuggets of the riding life to chew on and enjoy. This is a book for all you moto-bums and moto-nutters that dare to think, dare to love (and lust), but most of all, dare to ride.
