Keeping it Zen
I had my GSX-R750 stolen a couple months back by some idiots who have nothing better to do other than bring misery to those they affect through their thievery.
Anyway I ain’t letting them get me down. The words of Robert M. Pirsig (RIP this week) Zen and the Art of Motorcycle maintenance: aninquiry Into Values sum it up nicely:
“In a car you’re always in a compartment, and because you’re used to it you don’t realise 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.”
Reading the above again after 25 years since I first read the book, I’m thinking ‘what do bike thieves know about morals and values?’ Nothing because they have none! They are just lazy annoying contemptibles. Robert, London
