What is it that makes all of us motorcyclists suddenly become wildly gesticulating Italians when we talk about riding or our bikes? Watch racers in the pits trying to relay what a bike is doing by using body english. Go to your favorite motorcycling gathering spot and watch the various conversations ultimately evolve into miming the action of a bike. Since motorcycles live so completely in three dimensions and involve all the senses, I guess we have to resort to some form of acting when describing what the starring – but inanimate – character in all of our yarns did at various points in the plot.
