Motorcycle riding

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Yesterday I completed the Rider's Edge Course offered by Harley Davidson (a fantastic course for new or seasoned riders by the way) and love the calmness and peace that riding brings. I think I've found my new favorite outlet though shooting handguns is a close second.

 

I stared to wonder how common among chefs it is to use riding as a way to decompress from the stresses of our jobs.

It definitely works for me. Puts a big smile on my face in no time.

 

My commute to work is a 30 minute ride down a rural country road with an elevation change of about 3,000 feet and God's country scenery. The road is actually a popular secret with motorcycle riders escaping from the city on the weekends.

 

If it isn't raining or snowing, I am on the bike. I ride about 180 days a year. I am sure my wife gets tired of hearing me come into the house, pull off my helmet, and exclaim "wow, that is too much fun"

 

When I lived in the high country, I used to ski to and from work. Not sure which I like better, it is close; but they both work for me! thumb.gif

What a blessed man you are! It would be nice to have a structured riding time like going to work, unfortunately (and fortunately in some respects) I only live a mile away from where I work so I don't get to enjoy a commute.

 

It really is "too much fun" and I didn't truly understand the attraction until I tried it. Totally cathartic :)

Used to ride bikes, then went to four wheels in the dirt & mud. Used to ride with a group at least twice a month in Forest Hill, CA. Spend the weekend trying to get lost in the forest, lots of fun I miss it but can't ride anymore due to arthritis & other assorted things.

We camped in comfort, toy haulers & motor homes. Lots of good food and did I mention beer?

I wouldn't mind riding again, but gave it up (more or less) on account of the erratic (to say the least) traffic around here.

Maybe an off road bike in the near future as we got plenty dirt road here. Or a quad?

Needless to say, I do miss it, but know tend to go boating and fishing instead
