By falling in love with a motorcycle, I opened the door to a more full existence.
I love this! I got my M license when I was a young woman, but have not ridden in years. Your piece makes me want to give it another go now that my kids are grown and on their own. Your adventures inspire me!
Thanks for pointing out this insight on risk - that we don't realize we think it's BAD. Your sentence about risk made me ask myself what I might want to do that might involve some risk? And made me think back to two bicycle trips I took in the past 5 years and how fun and new-to-me they were. Hope you're still enjoying your badass bike!
