I have no problem with guys who ride quads and trikes personally. In fact, I have some good buddies that ride 4-wheelers. I'll never fully understnd it though. You see, I've been riding dirtbikes for years and just can't seem to let go of that rush. I'll ride a quad now and then for the hell of it and I feel like, "This should feel more challenging." I don't know it's the whole idea that you can sit on a quad without putting your feet down ....even at a stop. -It simply feels like you're cheating. The feeling riding a motorcycle seems to be much more demanding on your sense of balance as well as your physical and mental mind set. There is much more ZEN thought involved with controlling a bike. There is much more focus involved in maintaining homeostasis. This high is what I like. To overcome the intimidation and allow your psyche to engross itself into the bike. To involve your whole self into what you do is always a good thing. You must know your tolerances. To find your threshold and push yourself to the tip of that threshold is key. -So if you guys ever want to achieve nirvana.......get bike.
