Only A Biker Knows

You welcome the solitude, paired with the sound of your motor and sight of your constant companion, your shadow, only a biker knows.

Feeling blessed when Mother Nature gives you a break from the wet stuff on your only day off, only a biker knows.

Soothing balm of the warm suns rays reaching down to envelope you on your first spring ride, only a biker knows.

Tanned wrists and cheeks but no bikini lines, only a biker knows.

Maintenance time obligatory blood sacrifice at the alter of two wheels, given willingly to see the next journey through safely, only a biker knows.

Strangers are drawn to initiate conversations with you at any stop, providing a social aspect you hadn't anticipated on a solo journey, only a biker knows.

Holding your breath while speeding to get ahead of a cattle truck, only a biker knows.

Squashed guts and little amputated body parts decorate a fast moving target that still manages to be a magnet for countless kamikaze bugs, only a biker knows.

Wind seeping into your jacket like arms to embrace you, cool and welcome on a warm day, but an icy cold enemy to ward against on a winters ride, only a biker knows.

A pure joy and focus found once rolling hills and winding roads lay themselves ahead in your path, only a biker knows.

Blinding light rays of sun winking on chrome, only a biker knows.

Memory provoking smells of cut grass and flowery fields, only a biker knows.

Feeling the vibration of corrugated roads resonating long after you've completed that stretch of road, only a biker knows.

Yellow jacket in your jacket stinging at 100km/h, only a biker knows.

Watching a showreel of the blue sky and clouds roll by the back of your bulbous chrome headlight, only a biker knows.

A nod or wave to acknowledge another rider, still a stranger, but strangely not, only a biker knows.

Strong bonds of friendships transcend social status, sparked and strengthened by shared passion and experiences on two wheels, only a biker knows.
