During the month of November, we take time to remind ourselves of all the things we have to be thankful for. Family, friends, jobs, good health, pets, hobbies. If we’re lucky, there are too many things to count. And if you’re a biker, that list might be even longer! In the spirit of Thanksgiving, check out our list of 5 things all riders should be thankful for:
The Freedom it Offers
Riders are fortunate to be able to escape life for a little while on two-wheels, with nothing separating us from the open air. There’s nothing quite like the rush we get from the ride, and the sense of contentment we feel from the hum of our engine. Distractions are few as we take to the open road to roam the nation, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
Perfect Riding Weather
We ride in the good, the bad, and the ugly, so we really get pumped when the sun rises on a perfect riding day. Putting on your gear and getting ready for what lies ahead is even sweeter on the sunny days and we don’t take them for granted.
The Biker Community
Bikers are part of an exclusive and elite group. A tight-knit community of strangers, connected by a passion as natural to us as breathing. All it takes is that classic biker wave to feel as though you’re among family.
The Person That Got Us Into Riding
Is riding passed down in your family from generation to generation? Or, is riding an exciting passion you’ve recently discovered? Whether it was a family member, friend, or even a television character, someone inspired you to ride. Take time to gratefully reflect on the person who introduced you to our lifestyle, and look to pay it forward by passing the passion along to someone new.
Getting Home Safely
Nothing beats the feeling you get after an epic day of riding, having effectively steered clear of potholes and puddles, and avoided any bumps or bruises. Be thankful for all the safety gear that gets you home in one piece; after all, getting home safely to ride another day is what it’s all about.
