I Ride To Get Connected

When I ride... I feel connected. Connected to myself. Connected to my creator. Connected to everything around me. 

The throttle regulates my heart.... I twist my wrist and I can feel the blood coarsing through my veins. I know I'm alive. 

My helmet is a filter, shutting out everything unimportant. The thoughts in my head are concentrated. Focused. Effortless.... unrelenting.

The wind envelops me, challenges me, carries me. It whispers to me. Screams at me.  Frightens me. Comforts me.

My situational awareness is heightened. I read the thoughts of strangers. I anticipate their moves and counter them.

I live in the moment.

I take risks and I win.

I ride away from things.

I ride toward something else.

I don't ride to get anywhere.

I ride to get connected.
