I couldn't have said it better than Jerry Smith, so I'll just quote what he wrote:
"Give me a sunny day, and a full tank of gas, and a halfway decent coffee shop to ride to, and I'll be out in the garage and on the bike as fast as my gimpy knees will allow.
Because you just never know what's going to happen. Could be good, could be bad. Flip a coin. And maybe that's why we ride—the unexpected, the adventure. We ride even though we could get hurt, or killed. Some of us ride because we love to ride, others because we just have to, for reasons we can't explain and don't want to think about in case that leads to a reason not to."
