The Art and Magic of Controlling a Motorcycle

story by Steven Verschoor, Created Jul. 27, 2005
The zen of riding a bike, that state of grace attained while spiraling through the countryside, where does that come from, and what's it all about? Is it speed? Maybe not...

"We see guys all the time who manage to crash at quite modest speeds. And we know some—admittedly a much smaller number—who ride really fast, and have for a long time, but who never seem to crash. Not as in they don’t crash very often. As in they never crash."

It's about Degrees of Control.
