I was recently asked by a customer "what drives you?"
"What do you mean?" I replied as I was changing a tire.
"All this stuff you do, the ride nights, the clinics... all of that. What drives you do to it all?"
That is a damn good question! Well I will tell you what drives me.....
Sharing Joy! Its not motorcycles, its not being outside, its not speed or the rush of adrenaline you get when you come close to a massive wreck but barely save it. Those are all just my specific delivery methods for JOY!
Joy defined: a feeling of great pleasure and happiness.
When I found my true joy at 26 years of age I just wanted to share it. I believe that God wants us to share our experiences (good and bad) with others and when possible shouldn't we lift them up with "great pleasure and happiness?"
Well, my worldly joy comes from these amazing 2 wheeled machines. They have brought be joy in my darkest times. Motorcycles have the ability to legally alter my mood in the split second it takes for the engine to light up and the clutch to engage. The course of my life has literally been corrected for the better by motorcycles and I want to share that with the world.
Whether its riding for the first time, conquring a hard trail, a new view, or learning a valuable skill, I LOVE sharing my joy with others. I LOVE that smile you can see even when someone has a helmet on. I LOVE seeing someone change a tire without pinching a tube! I absolutely LOVE sharing my joy of motorcycles with others.
So, to answer my customer and all of you who wonder what motivates this goofball. Its JOY!!!
One way I like to share this joy is our Thursday night rides. If you want a short email every week letting you know where we are riding, click the button below and we will get you on the list!
