“Some time ago, a colleague of mine, a reporter who covered religious topics at a newspaper, asked me why I didn’t go to church. I told her I did go to church, every day, when I went out riding my motorcycle………..Motorcycling forces riders to transcend their egos—to empty themselves and exist in the world around them. The consequences of not being totally aware of their actions and environment, of becoming distracted by the baggage of their everyday lives, are too great. When you’re out in the world on a bike, you must be completely in the moment, completely aware of your surroundings, or you may find yourself meeting your concept of God earlier than you might have hoped. But when everything is working, when you and your bike are totally in sync and the road rushing under your feet feels like an extension of your body—at those times, you get in touch with divinity.” Unknown.
