14 | WheelsOfGrace.com | Issue 51 If you have been around the people who have motorcycles in their life for any length of me, it becomes apparent to you rather quickly the a tude they have about them. A mind-set, or outlook on life, might be a be er way to describe it. These people are not from any one demographic. They come from every walk of life. Teachers, Fire Fighters, Brick Layers, Pastors and Account Execu ves. Motorcyclists offer diversity in every race and gender. Yet when we pass each other on the road, there is that wave, that nod. An indica on of respect, yes, but more that we know each other. Without even mee ng. We know you ride. And we know why. It isn't really a reason to commute in the car pool lane. It isn't really to get be er gas mileage. It isn't because, well, you look cool on your choice of two wheels. Those things and more, are secondary results. And like they say… "If I have to explain, you wouldn't understand!" We are by-products of a choice, a choice you make for freedom. Freedom from cages that encompass you and every other aspect of your life. Those cubicles, those boxes within buildings. Those schedules, those rules. That choice for freedom. Riding is also about being part of a community - a family. We respect each other. We live by a code. We would give the shirt off our backs for someone in need. We are brothers and sisters of the road. We salute the riders that we pass and wish them a safe journey. We ride in countless charity rides to raise money for countless causes. Riders never get credit for all the good we do, but we do it anyway. We NEVER take anyone for GRANTED. EVER. You just never know. So, when we tell you that we ride, and we have that twinkle in our eye, and we appear to be so very protec ve of our fellow riders and our freedoms of choice, try to understand. We aren't rebels, we aren't anything really. Except free. Why We RIDE 1-800-LawTigers LawTigers.com F. A. I. T. H. RIDERS No One Left Behind www.faithriders.com
