The title reminded me of something I posted on facebook a while ago.
Not to take this off topic...
I didn't write it, but it's my picture in the back...

Awesome to see some passion about bike riding.

I have memories of riding in UK winters with multiple layers on in sub zero (but dry!) night-time trips of 3-4 hours and recoiling my fingers inside the gloves to stop the pain of the cold, all the while holding the throttle as wide open as it would go so I could get to my girlfriend's bed quicker. I'd arrive like a frozen Michelin man. Even those uncomfortable journeys were unforgettable.

I confess to being a complete squid and riding the roads of the alps in just a pair of shorts with no helmet on, racing my friend on his trials bike through twisties. No - nothing ever happened thank God, I hate to think now what could have - but it was fun at the time and we were young & foolish 20 year olds & felt very much alive on that trip. Unforgettable!

Riding in Thailand, timing myself around Koh Samui on a rented XLR250. I think it was about 45 minutes, then having to beat that time the morning I was leaving - because I'd woken up too late & needed to catch the ferry that morning. I made it and cheated death again, although flat shifting didn't do the gearbox much good.

Nowadays I'm a lot more sensible but I still thoroughly enjoy some good twisty roads. I always say - riding a motorcycle is the best way to travel. And you meet some great people along the way on two wheels too.

So many great memories to be made on a bike. And at the end, really - memories are all we can take with us.

I see what you did there!

"And you meet some great people along the way on two wheels too."
You meet the nicest people on a Honda!

Yeah, it's true & I'd say I only ride Hondas, but that wouldn't quite be true... but they're the best bikes I've ridden, that's for sure.

The same film group is also working on a 2nd film, "Kretz: the true story of Ed Kretz".
It's about Ed "Iron Man" Kretz, quite possibly the greatest America motorcycle racer of the 30's and 40's.
Also the first winner of the first inaugural Daytona 200 in 1937.
