Why ride a motorcycle? Riding is something most people don’t have to do, but rather feel compelled to … for a wide variety of reasons ranging from passion to practicality.

One of the most distinct things about riding is that nothing feels quite like a motorcycle; the thrill of being at one with a two-wheeled machine that weighs only a few hundred pounds is one of the purest ways to get from point A to B, and the risks involve sometimes even heighten that enjoyment.

Perhaps Robert Pirsig said it best in Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: “You’re completely in contact with it all. You’re in the scene, not just watching it anymore, and the sense of presence is overwhelming.”

When I ride a motorcycle, there is no past repentance or judgement, there is no future anticipation or evaluation … what remains is a constant flow of moments … happening right in front of the eye; a steady stream of man, car, animal , road, time … just here and just now … its a constant presence of the current moment happening in your consciousness.

There is a third state between Consciousness and unconsciousness as mentioned in our Spiritual book; it’s called a State of Turiya … A state of absolute presence or Super consciousness … and when I rev my throttle … my past, future all vanishes and what remains is a state of steady bliss. It’s that state of the mind, which sometimes lures me towards life of an endless roaring timeless earth wanderer. Maybe .. that’s my meditation, that’s my Kaizen …
