What I dream of doing

I love the MotoGeo Adventure series, hosted by Jamie Robinson. The stuff he does serves as inspiration for the daydreams I have about riding my own bike. The process of trying to get a motorcycle and the financial realities of my life often leave me feeling really discouraged and inclined to just let the whole thing slip away again, as it did when I was a teenager. But then I'll watch a video piece like this and it lights something in me.

It tortures me, as well. At the end of his pieces, Jamie always speaks to the simplistic joy of motorcycling. "Just get on a motorbike, twist the throttle, and go. Anywhere," he'll say. But that is so hard for me, seems so far away. Sometimes I think I am torturing myself by watching these sorts of things.

    What else is there in life, but to dream . . .

    dream of riding to far away places, to feel the wind on your face as you lean into the corners and twisting the throttle

    I know that you have the resolve to make this happen, one day

  2. Cool video, and, is that... a Ducati? Why yes.

    I have been where you are, and know the agony of desperately wanting a bike and not being able to acquire one.

    You are a man who decided to move to Wales and study the language, with no connection beyond an interest in it, and you made it happen. You'll make this happen too.
