    I saw them yesterday right at 72 waiting for those who make the final turn on 539 at break neck speeds.

    I love bikes; had several guys with old school machines; big loud stable rides like Norton, BMW. Lost all desire to own one after assisting Atlantic County Medical Examiner 1982-1984. Maybe if there was someplace to ride with no cars?

    I have never been on a motorcycle, had no desire too. Never will. I thought about getting a pilots license once.

    The thing that makes 2 wheels without a metal enclosure dangerous is the same thing that makes it great.
    Leaning into the apex, traveling on a country road at dusk, feeling the mist each time the road dips, noticing the various evening scents. Nothing comes close, not even an old school sports car convertible.

    I'd like to try a glider though.
