Posing on Kevin’s motorcycle.
I had always wanted to ride on the back of a motorcycle. Thanks to a friend who owns one, I finally got my chance last summer.
We decided to meet at a mall near my house, where he drove the motorcycle. From there, we cruised around some beautiful blocks by the beach. I told him I wasn’t ready to go on any major roads and I don’t think he wanted to risk it anyway!
Even with the bulky helmet, riding around in the beautiful weather was such a great experience. If any of you have ever ridden on a motorcycle, jet ski, or even a roller coaster in nice weather, or really any type of weather, you can probably relate to the sense of freedom it provides you with.
The fear of getting hit by a car from behind was lurking at the back of my mind, but I tried not to let it take over and simply enjoyed myself.
Of course, as with bungee jumping, I decided not to tell my mom about the experience until after it was over! Her “motorcycles are so dangerous” statement also sat at the back of my mind; in her defense, she did witness someone who was hospitalized after flying 70 feet in the air on a motorcycle.
Nonetheless, even if you don’t want to go on any major roads, I’d definitely recommend trying to ride on or drive a motorcycle on some back roads because it was a lot of fun!
Maybe the next step will be driving one 😉
