  2. Well I’ve just finished reading issue 194 of TRD and found it very interesting, and not just because you included my random scribbles recording my trip around the Dales. (Thanks for the inclusion) What captured my interest was the article “A League of Notions” and the International Journal of Motorcycle Studies.
    I have only ever ridden my bike for the fun of it, and now that I’m retired riding has the ability to clear the cobwebs and put a smile on my face, it open up access to vast swaths of the great outdoors which were previously limited by the constraints of the working week, but when I was working it would evaporate the frustration of the day and sooth any office related headaches, and when I ride with my sons it brings us closer together. It never occurred to me that there was a psychology to it!
    Now, I have to wonder what it is in my psyche that drives me to spend half an hour donning all my gear and prepping and checking the bike before finally setting off on a 45 minute ride just for a Latte and Bacon Roll at Squires, there to sit back quietly enjoying that feast before heading back and the final twenty minutes or so putting everything away again. Is there a psychology to it or is it just for the fun of it..? Am I reading too much into this concept..? Possibly. but perhaps I should do as my wife has always suggested and go get my head examined..!
