Regardless if you ride alone or in a group, there is a common comradery and respect for others. Those who do not ride will not understand. It is a simplistic relationship, but almost impossible to describe in words.
We ride for the joy of it. for the sense of freedom and peace when you hit the open road. Yes, some say you can do it in a car, we say whatever tickle your fancy. We do not judge what you like even if you are weak. There is a place in the food chain for everyone.
At the end of the day for whatever the reason might be, who are others to tell you whats the right reason to ride? Who says we even need a reason?
