When i first got my bike, I was born into a community of one of the coolest experiences in the world. Man oh man, to be a biker. i’d dreamed about it for a few years but was unable to afford a bike at the time. Now, it’s a different story. i’ve been biking for just over a year now, and although i’m still pretty new to this amazing community of people who do it because they can and love it, I can now say that i’ve managed to play an influence on people who have finally decided to, not to be too much of a cliche, Join the club.
I thought this was the coolest experience I’ve ever had so I thought I’d post it to my Blog!
Playing with Tigers!
This morning for me was a really interesting one, biking related of course…
While on my way to work i was joined by Pierre, the friend who got me into the whole thing! Thanks dude!!! We rode together for a while and had a great time doing it! It’s always great fun when you get to ride with someone. Usually it’s a barrel of laughs as we play with each other on the highway…. Very cool!
Needless to say, it’s always great when you get a whole group of biker travelling the same direction. It definately brings a sense of community to the whole escapade. We started off with another few bikers riding with us. All travelling at the same speed, going the same way.. it kinda felt pretty awesome to be a part of this community!
After a while i decided to say goodbye to Pierre as I was beginning to run late for work and his GSX-R600 is in for repairs due to an accident. He’s currently on some or other Scrapmbler which maxes out at about 80Km/h. I waved goodbye and headed off on my usual path to work, only to encounter a HUGE group of about 15 bikers going the same way… WOW! It really felt like a breakfast run! I really enjoyed it!
I LOVE BIKING!!!
I found this poem on the Think Bike website (http://www.thinkbike.co.za/). I really like it! Hope you do too! I’m not sure who wrote it though.
