    here's what someone else said....

    Riding for me has always been an activity that puts me into an odd state of serenity. I say odd because it calms me while shattering my nerves. Riding a hardcore sport machine through a tight road is a draining experience, one that demands your full concentration and energy. Riding a 916 is a raw experience - condensed. Whenever I get off the 916, I am in a state of blissful shock. My body vibrates and aches, my heart pounds through my chest, my mind running in overdrive – all followed by calm. It’s my medication to inoculate against monotony.

    The thing is, I’ve only felt like this in rare instances. Usually when I picked up a new bike I’d have my moments of euphoria, followed by boredom. I would tire quickly of most machines. The 916 is different. Riding it never gets old. It’s the only motorcycle I’ve ever ridden that gives me that magical sense of excitement every time I take it out. Nothing else has the same feel. That’s why I have kept the 916 for this long, and it’s why I will never sell it.
