When I started writing this blog two years ago, one of the things I wanted to do was to say something about why I love motorcycles, and why the experience of riding them is so utterly different from the experience of driving a car. I said most of what I wanted to say, albeit not very satisfactorily, and the topics moved on.
Today, I want to direct you to an excellent post by OscarIndia, here. In it, he says in a couple of paragraphs what I didn't quite get round to saying in ten or twelve posts. If you don't ride a bike, then read it and understand why the rest of us are so obsessed by two-wheeled machines. If you do ride, then read it and smile, knowing that someone, somewhere knows exactly what you are thinking.
And if that one whetted your appetite, go back a bit to his post on Why Bikes Rock for a demonstration of the practicalities.
