I use to wonder why driving is such a passion. Maybe I enjoy the freedom, the adrenaline rush and the sense of control. Driving a motor bike for years though brings its demise in the form of a back pain for which I have to undergo physiotherapy.
I love motor sport. I follow formula 1 and Moto GP sessions for years. I am a big fan of Ferrari for their sheer passion. The precision perfect riding style of Michael Schumacher, Mika Hakinnen, Lewis Hamilton, Kimi Raikonen, Fernando Alonso in formula 1 and Valentino Rossi in Moto GP are a treat to the eyes. I wonder what would it feels like to taste the sheer power behind those wheels. The sound of the engine, the speed in which they are traveling, the G-Force, the curves and the terrain, all makes it a thrill sport.
Here in our hometown many youth enjoy this passion too. They race wherever and whenever possible. Unfortunately the roads and traffic conditions provide a little space and leads to fatality, but still they find way to show off their rides. I’ve been in such a race for a few times, lucky to escape without a scratch. The feeling of many cc of power behind the wheels and the adrenaline rush makes it addictive!. But as I grow old, I seem to drive slower and slower and I find out that speed is not the only way to enjoy driving. So, to all my friends out there who enjoy driving as much as I do, happy joy riding.
