"If you didn't "get" Robert Pirsig's Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, you may not understand this book, either... But if you've ever spent any time on a motorcycle, even if you aren't conversant in the principles of Taoism and Qi, you'll likely connect with the prose of The Tao of the Ride...In my twenties, I loved bikes because they were fast, "dangerous" and cool; In my fifties, I have discovered an entirely new aspect of riding: I ride for the meditation, the feeling of balance, the sights, smells, and sounds as the countryside flys by. I also find that although I usually double my average travel time when riding, I get to my destination totally exhilarated and refreshed. Thanks for the insight and inspiration, Garri!"
