“In a car you're always in a compartment, and because you're used to it you don't realize that through that car window everything you see is just more TV. You're a passive observer and it is all moving by you boringly in a frame.

 

On a cycle the frame is gone. You're completely in contact with it all. You're in the scene, not just watching it anymore, and the sense of presence is overwhelming.”

 

- Robert M. Pirsig, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry Into Values

 

Driving a motorcycle is like flying. All your senses are alive. When I ride through Beverly Hills in the early morning, and all the sprinklers have turned off, the scents that wash over me are just heavenly.

 

- Hugh Laurie

It wasn't until I went to college and I got my first motorcycle that I understood the thrill of speed.

I really love to ride my motorcycle. When I want to just get away and be by myself and clear my head, that's what I do.
