You have to experience the thrill of handling that roaring monster under you!!
It was fun to ride as a passenger and I may at some time have to go back to being a passenger, but until that day, there will always be Yamaha under me! It is the thrill you feel when handing that bike while feeling the wind rush by your face. The pride to stop at a red light and get the thumbs up sign from someone. The pride to have someone stop next to you and tell you they are proud of you or to get a comment on how beautiful your bike is!! Until you experience that thrill, just saying it does not come close to the actual experience!! Once you have the fever, you won't let it go!
