Ahh. The attractiveness of motorcycles
to women ...
Being a woman, and having ridden motorcycles for over 12 years now, I have to agree that bikes are very sexy. More sexy
than street, however, is dirt
With my 250 XR
under me, I can go as far as I want, as fast as I want. The adrenaline
rush can be surreal
-- sliding around switchback corners with 1500-foot drops, flying off washed-out sections of desert
at 50 mph, powering up rivers through rocks and slime and mud, my heart racing, palms sweating, muscles tightening, fingers clenching, trying not to scream ...
Riding not only empowers me to do things I could not otherwise do, lets me see places I could not otherwise see, feel the rush
I would not otherwise feel ... It allows me to spend hours and hours alone
, alone in my helmet, thinking about how wonderful it is to be alive
