We ride, therefore we are.
People come to the forum for a lot of different reasons. The primary thing we all share of course, is that we ride. Strangely, the why's are both vastly different and very similiar for all of us. It is partly that dichotomy that makes our community so alive and vibrant.
The following linked thread and it's original poster ask the question; why do you ride? Such a foundational question qualifies it for the Best of The Forum.
