Ending yesterday's ride, I rode up the ramp into the shop on Red, turned off the engine and sat in the saddle for a long moment.

Removing my helmet, I told my friend Chris that I find more and more as I ride that I don't want to get off. His smiling eyes and face reflected a knowing understanding.

While reading* this morning on the train, I came across a passage that explains it all:
"Being on the machine seems more natural than being off it."
