A friend posted this on facebook.  It's short and sweet and I think you will enjoy it.

Cool, thought - provoking movie!

One of the first things to come to mind was that I used to be able to feel "free" like that in almost everything in daily life 50 years ago. Not so much today.
It's frightening how much freedom(and money) has been forcibly stolen from the people by corrupted government in such a short time.

I must admit I've always felt "free' and still do, maybe that's why I've been married 4 times.   ;D  ERC

Aw Ace, don't spoil it!!!  ;)

I don't remember if I posted this before here, and I'm too lazy to look, but I definitely find that riding gives me a freedom - not to enjoy the scenery, which I don't do very well while I'm under way, but the freedom to think only about the riding I'm doing in the moment.  It's a time I can not be thinking about anything else, which can be a wonderful therapy.  And, there is nothing else I do which gives me that.

Even for my short commute to work - by car I arrive half-asleep and bored.  But by bike, by the time I leave my driveway, I've already forgotten that I'm even going to work, and I just get to focus on the task at hand.  I arrive at work awake and energized (and not wanting to stop, but that's another problem altogether!  ;D ).

I like it. And like the rider in the video , I find it works best with a full face helmet.

Sorry if I posted a buzzkill.

This is one reason why I like riding in the dirt so much.  The unpaved forgotten roads, that whisper archaic tales of those who rode there before you.  Just escaping civilization, freeing your entire mind, body and soul as you soar through the wind with the clearest of minds.  Riding is a necessity for me, it's the yin to my yang, even if it means saddling up in sub-zero temps to go roll around the block in 4" of snow.  :)

Amen to that.  I could not agree more.

I must admit I've always felt "free' and still do, maybe that's why I've been married 4 times.   ;D  ERC
Wow, 4 times? You obviously don't breed well in captivity! ;D

I know that feeling, too. I've even had more experience than you. I had one wife tell me "no Motorcycles." She never did understand how much that shortened our marriage! I got another bike and was gone. (I still had a Greeves from before we got married.) But she also didn't like my flying, which I was doing for a living. And she didn't like sailing as I was racing sailboats to replace the motocross racing.
My current wife was warned about saying anything detrimental to my flying or motorcycling when we started going together. She does mention it on occasions, usually when I'm in the hospital or emergency room, but I gently remind her about our "prenup" and she shuts up! She is finally getting the idea that motorcycling is my mental and physical therapy after 19 years.
