The old saying, ” If I have to explain it, you wouldn’t understand.” speaks to me in volumes but at the same time can be summed up in a few words. Longing, freedom, exhilaration, desire are just a few words that come to mind when describing the ride and when I’m not riding. Truth be told, it can be down right depressing. The ride is a sure cure for all ailments.
The past few weeks have been a blast on my 1999 Softail Custom. Just a couple of days out of the saddle and I’m feeling the longing for the open road. In my heart is “I’d rather be riding.”
I’m more relaxed after a ride. I’m more alert when I ride but am more content while doing my riding. I could be, and have been, in the saddle all day. Can you?
