What have you loved about bikes from day one, and what do you still find joy in when you ride?

Motorcyclist - - Shift -


One thing I like about bikes is that they wear their me­chan­i­cals on the out­side. Modern ve­hi­cles, you know there’s an en­gine there, but you can’t see the en­gine and you can’t ac­cess it. Mo­tor­cy­cles are like watches. You can see all the in­ter­nals mov­ing. Open the hood of any mid-’60s hot rod, and there’s a dress-up kit there, three or four car­bu­re­tors; it’s at­trac­tive to look at. With mo­tor­cy­cles, es­pe­cially Har­leys, In­di­ans, th­ese kinds of bikes, they wear their skele­ton on the out­side.
