    This is a very insightful article. I also had no idea how glorious motorcycles could be until I was at a red light one day. A motorcycle was in the lane next to me, but I would have never known had he not revved his engine seven times. This created mixed emotions in me as I was simultaneously in awe of this man and his iron beast, while at the same time worried I would immediately lose my wife to him. Keep up the informative articles!
