Default I remembered.

I went for a ride with Uk Rob yesterday and it reminded why i started riding in the first place.It was a gorgeous day, not to hot, dry clean roads decent corners and hardly any traffic and even though Rob tried to upset me with his libelous jibes i really enjoyed myself. .The best thing about the ride was not having a route to stick to,bloody marvellous.

You know what Bigg, i reckon a lot of people do not understand the concept of riding a motorbike for the fun of it. Its not a dig at anyone, just goes to show being a biker is about more than one thing.

Get on ride, enjoy, get home and get bitched at for not clearing out the garage, never mind it was worth it.I once rode to hull and back just for the hell of it.It was closed.

Im not saying everyone mate but seriously, how many people on here for example do you hear say they just went out for a great ride?
Bikes mean different things for different people no doubt but personally i dont understand the idea of just using your bike to ride to a rally then forget about it until you ride home. Bikes are to be used and have fun on, simple as that. Horses for courses i guess.

Rob, you have posted stuff like this loads of times.. The last time was when folk including me said they have to work for a living.. for whatever reasons mate.. you don't, so you get far, far more time to go for a ride for fun that I and a lot of others here do. I work 6 full days , sometimes until till 7 or 8 at night...I can assure you if I had the time you do, I would be out on it most days.. unfortunately..I can't.

So can i ask that, if you mean that having time for a ride for fun makes you more of a biker, does it then follow that we then must be less of a biker because we have to work and don't get the spare time?

Bassman, i know what work is about. You seem to get this idea i live a life of leisure. Believe me, its not leisure but if i had to explain, well its obvious you dont have a clue otherwise, well
Yes, ive worked 6 and 7 days a week and i rode my bike because it was a release, i found time, thats what bikes are for me fun and a release not a statement to society.
You also add do i believe this makes me more of a biker???? Why is there this competition? I couldnt give a monkies chuff what a real biker is supposed to be. All i said was i personally dont understand people not riding their bikes just for the sake of it, i never mentioned i was better or worse as i dont care, i just said i didnt understand.
Bringing up the fact i dont work is a bit out of order Bassman if im honest. You know why im not at work and it aint a life of leisure and all peachy and its also irrelevant as to why i ride my motorbike.

I'm chuffed for you that you managed to get a great ride out. I hope you have lots of them and keep telling us about them.. I enjoy reading about folks runs out.

I certainly wasn't having a go at you for not working, but when you have been for a ride out on a weekday, and then post general remarks about the forum members not posting stuff here about their great ride outs, and using bikes for just going to rallies etc. and that being a biker is more than just one thing...that you did post, i personally found it a bit tactless..

Of course i know why you are not able to work at the moment, and of course i feel for you in that....but the point I was making is.... that you are able to do the ride out at the moment is BECAUSE of the situation you find yourself in, and I and lots of others here can't, because we have to work during the week. Sorry if you don't agree, but I think that is a fair comment to make and not disparaging to you in any way.. you should know better than that....

Sorry mate, perhaps i could word stuff better. Ah, lets forget it.

You both have valid comments. I missed most of the summer because my bike was getting fixed after an accident in July. I love to ride just for fun, sometimes hundreds of miles but not all of us can do it all the time. For some people its even down to a choice of food or fuel! the one thing we all have in common on this site is we love bikes (and maybe trikes) but we all enjoy and use them in different ways. Theres no right way or wrong way.
