geeps, you are getting a might bit too friendly with that chunk of alum n plastic.. if you spent more time riding it FAR to new destinations, your MENTAL time will be spent on a zillion other things other than that chuck of alum n plastic 'tween your legs. ONLY then will you forget about it and enjoy the ride for what it is... or just sit in your chair and imagine riding to distant places and make vroom vroom noises while you pretend to crack the throttle.. ps. if you do this nekid, do NOT post any pics!The theory goes that you're completely at one with your bike once it disappears while you're riding it. I'm only halfway there.?
I read you ride it plenty much.. it being bone stock, you aint going far in that set up.. from your post, you seem to be fixated on this machine, soley, so much so, that you are missing the RIDE aka FLYING w/o leaving the ground..I’m riding plenty far. You’ve missed my point.
Still not getting it, eh? Read what bparish says. He gets it.I read you ride it plenty much.. it being bone stock, you aint going far in that set up.. from your post, you seem to be fixated on this machine, soley, so much so, that you are missing the RIDE aka FLYING w/o leaving the ground..
If all you do is think about the bike beneath you, you are missing ALL the good points of its deliverables.. The Scenery alone certainly should be all up in your face and consuming your thoughts. Changing temps (not the CC crap), Humidity, Smells - good and bad, Speed and Road condition feedback all are part of Sensory Overload is what most all/any bike delivers. Who has got time to be consumed with just the machine that is providing this venue?
that is why I tell you to pack up your mule and head out into the boonies and experience travel life on two wheels. this may be a fine race horse, but it is not the only pack horse than can get the job done and haul your arse around that little island of yours.. tell shrubbo, poncho is gonna hafta come down there and show you how to get it done.
I get it plenty.. you wrote "Goal - Invisible Bike".. I am telling you point blank is that you spend too much time and energy thinking about this particular Bike and not the Ride. if you did, it would be in your words that you write. the Ride is the Experience Adventure, the bike is just the means that provides it. It is the same as being Fixated on the Airplane and not on the Flying.. when you get past your amore for your Flyer, only then will you experience the Flying and the bike will disappear.. your stated Goal for it to be Invisible. I am telling you how. but if you don't want to hear it? horse / water. you know the story. ponchoStill not getting it, eh? Read what bparish says. He gets it.
well ok, it is fairly large chunk of mostly desert but it is surrounded by oceans on all sides and doesn't have any pesky neighbors constantly breaking in an stealing their stuff.. at least they cant just walk in, like those Canuks who are always getting lost walking in the woods and just happen to show up in St Louie, just how the helldid that happen?..Poncho, just for the record, Australia is almost the same size as the USA mainland. It's not a small island..
