From the entry entitled Authenticity:

"Not quiet unclassifiable, either. With the motorcycle comes the stereotype. Rebellious, dangerous, juvenile, noisy. The trick is to undermine this rubbish by refusing to conform to it. The motorcycle isn't a display device, it's a tool. The fact that it happens to be achingly delectable is secondary and best ignored, otherwise it confirms the stereotype, and, bang, you're classified.

All of which comes with a pricetag. You have to ride it., not just pose on it. I heard somewhere that most motorcycles sit mostly in garages, hardly used. Which makes the daily commute important, it's the hard yards, buying the right to the machine and its true value.

Rock On with yo' bad-self, Moto-Brother. Rock ON.
