The Tao of the Ride: Motorcycles and the Mechanics of the Soul
Greg Glazier from Colorado USA
"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!"
