Sub, WillW and Scotty - spot on all of you. I can only add that as well as all of that it gives me a better temperament and a bit more humility

I do get cranky when I can't ride for a few weeks.  Having the bike up on blocks while I finish the fork in this beautiful spring weather is klillin' me!

DUDES! Only one reason. THE CHICKS!

Ok, just kidding. Wife sometimes reads over my shoulder so thought I'd put that on there to mess with her a bit.

I feel like I have accomplished something when I arrive at my destination. Thats something I cant get from my car. I love feeling the wind on my face and hearing the road.
Riding the Bullet is economical, more environmental conscious and allot more fun. I also like to meet people and since getting the bike, I really have been late to everything because of the number of times I get asked questions about her. Dont mind so much tho.  ;D

Why ?
 Because it makes sense on more levels than I am aware of in ways a I can't explain.

It is in my nature.
I can break it better,,,,at night, in the rain, on the trail,, 20 miles from nowhere.
