Riding a motorcycle can make you a more mindful car driver, giving you a more visceral sense of highway speeds.
It can also make you a more mindful traveler. When it's cold, you're cold. When it's hot, you're hot. When it's raining, you're wet. When it's snowing, you're sitting in a truck stop drinking bad coffee. (Secondary lesson: In riding, as in life, at times you will encounter forces greater than your own will.)
Riding requires extreme physical and mental concentration, which makes it a brilliant form of meditative yoga. (And the subject of a truly excellent book by Robert Pirsig.)

In your helmet, no one can hear you sing.
Today's lesson: Motorcycles = good
