What Do You Enjoy Most About Motorcycles?
We got together a bunch of motorcycle riders that either work in the industry or are members of a New Zealand motorcycle club and asked them all the same question. Tell us, what do you enjoy most about motorcycles?
Sebastien Hamilton Bay Motorcycles
What do you enjoy most about motorcycles? In short, everything. But particularly the heart of all motorcycles, the engine. The raw mechanical spirit of old motorcycles, the finely tuned scream of high-revving modern sports bikes, the solid rumble of a v-twin and the simple yet provocative thump of a single cylinder supermotard.

Max Mobley Counties Honda
What do you enjoy most about motorcycles? I enjoy being at one with a high performance machine, getting to where you are going is a collaboration between the rider and the bike and that really appeals to me. Nipping out for an hour or two just for the sake of going for a ride is awesome, just concentrating on what you are doing on the bike and having a few thrills on the way is soul food for me!
Denver Chance Resurgence Gear
What do you enjoy most about motorcycles? There’s a definite and undeniable thrill that comes with motorcycling. I’ve curbed my urge to try hit top speeds and reach personal best times, for me the most enjoyment comes from just going for a cruise. In saying that I do love really twisting that throttle hard from time to time, that’s part of the fun. Sometimes as little as thirty minutes on the bike is just what I needed, not to get from A to B, just for the enjoyment of it. I find it an unusual mix of both exhilaration and relaxation.

Until next time,
