Superb article! but cars are fun too, maybe not as much as bikes.

True! The author has written another article on his experience with the bullet and how it gained his respect! worth reading - http://motorbreathing.tripod.com/bullet.html

To quote Robert M. Pirsig from his book, "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance"


Quote:
“In a car you're always in a compartment, and because you're used to it you don't realize that through that car window everything you see is just more TV. You're a passive observer and it is all moving by you boringly in a frame.

On a cycle the frame is gone. You're completely in contact with it all. You're in the scene, not just watching it anymore, and the sense of presence is overwhelming.”


― Robert M. Pirsig, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry Into Values


I agree.



Cheers!
