Today while getting ready to go home, I got on the bike and started it before I put my gloves on. I wasn’t in a hurry and as it rumbled to life I had a moment of pure joy. I put on my gloves looking forward to the ride and listening to the sound of the engine. The dash was shaking so very slightly with the vibrations of the motor and I just sat there for a little while after putting on my gloves.
I love the anticipation before a ride and I still look forward to just about every time I get on the motorcycle. The exceptions being extreme weather then it’s sometimes hard to look forward to the ride, but these spring days are a great time to be out on the motorcycle.
