‘Well, I already have three motorcycles at the moment,’ I said, and all I seem to be doing with them is topping up road tax, insurance and batteries. Another one will be just too much for me.’ Even as I said it, I realized I was doing something completely preposterous. Me, refusing a motorcycle? I mean, if I was 18 and someone offered their Suzuki GSX-R1000 to me to look after, I would’ve written up my own contract for bonded labor and handed it over in triplicate. Since when did my life start getting governed by silly practicalities?
It’s a curious thing, this motorcycle ownership. Show me someone who loves one and I will show you how he’s always on the lookout for another. In fact, a few months ago I wrote an article about how it’s probably better for someone like me, given the time at my disposal, to have just one motorcycle and enjoy it completely rather than have three, that I had at the time. So how many do I have after a year of that nugget of wisdom? Er… still three. Albeit two of them are different from the time I wrote that article. Go figure!
