On the Topic of Loneliness And Bikes
for guys and girls - ever took a long ride before - on the back or as the pilot or just alone? the wind and hum blurs into a sereness that after a short while you feel in bliss, but just as a mute and blind, like a fetus happy in the womb. all there is is focus on the next couple of inches of pavement infront of you. like a spaceman in a suit, comfortable but over protected and separated from the rest of humanity, even (and especially) from the other person on the machine. and at the end of the ride all there is, is the streaked memories of experiences of roadsides scenes, scares of unexpected tightening corners, and shots of adrenaline followed by dopamine. as i'm stuck in my cube at the moment, this is as far as i can recall the experience and feelings, which really are just bare bones of what the experience itself could do for you.
