A few days ago I was afraid of getting on a motorcycle, let alone taking it for a ride. I can get into any car and drive it like I stole it, but with motorcycles it was different. I found them intimidating and nerve-racking. The BMW Rider Academy changed all of this and for the past few days all I can think about is getting on a bike and riding.
A few weeks ago I was invited to attend a track day by a very good friend of mine. That day, standing next to the racetrack, something inside me awoke. Whether it was caused by the deafening sound of horsepower racing by or the competitive side of my personality, I do not know, but since that day all I have been wanting to do was get in the seat and experience it for myself.
