Why We Ride

When I’m on a motorcycle, or moped, my mind is both completely engaged and most at peace. My body, from head to toe, is active but relaxed.

The machine disappears and becomes part of me and the two of us, as one, are capable of such awe inspiring speed and agility.

It’s a transformation experience. It delivers a high. It’s actually good for my mental and physical health. With the right gear, I can do it everyday.

It gets me where I have to go and takes me where I want to be at the same time.

Why do You ride?

I ride mopeds and scooters because It clears my head and brings smiles to peoples’ faces everywhere I go.

I can't afford a vintage car or a race car silly.

Re: Why We Ride

2 wheelers are definitely more financially accessible for most of us.

Even with unlimited funds, I would just have cooler motorcycles. I really love the look of old Excelsior Henderson bikes.

Also, machines are works of art in my eyes. The more exposed and mechanical something is, the more beautiful it is to me.

Yeah, I’m downright amazed at how much it makes others smile.

Re: Why We Ride

a HUGE piece of it for me is the friends - i've met people that i love to death with all my heart and soul from this dumb hobby and the times we've shared riding and not are unforgettable, I think many people arent even lucky enough to find one friend as good as the many in my mopey family.

It’s a cheap way to have something mechanical to work on. I enjoy fixing and riding about the same, and you can try stuff with performance without rising my much money

How much do you want to spend on one?

Re: Why We Ride

To see the world at 30mph. Life in the slowwwwwwwwwww lane.

Re: Why We Ride

Lar you hit it! Can't believe the grins people get seeing an old geezer on a "is that a moped?!" Plus I love em.

Re: Why We Ride

Because it's fun, and different, the looks, and people who come up and ask about them, used to use it to commute when nice, but age and traffic levels are making that less fun, mainly just ride for something to do, also curious just how long this Hobbit will last?

Re: Why We Ride

My daughter gets jealous when we ride--People are drawn more to my QT than her Vespa scooter. Feel bad for her as that Vespa costs 10 times what I have in my QT ,so yea they do attract attention. She'll get the QT when I can't ride anymore.

No wonder you can’t afford vintage, them sights set too high. My LC is 36 years old and my longbed is 39. I love old cars, new shit is junk.

Re: Why We Ride

New stuff is cool, but WAY over priced, and you can't work on it, old stuff for me always. :)

Re: Why We Ride

The reason I ride is because it is character building...
