My name is Michael Murray…
and I am a “Motorcyclist”
How many of you remember your first motorcycle experience?
I remember my first experience.
I was about 7 or 8 years old when my older brother got a “Trail-Bike“.
I was fascinated and I would watch him ride up and down our driveway and in our back yard – studying how he rode and how he took took the controls.
I waited for that one day when he finally rode up to me, lifted-up the visor of his helmet and said:
“Hey, wanna give it a try?“
And with a big smile, I jumped up – grabbed the handle bars of the trail bike – threw my leg over the seat – gave it some throttle – popped out the clutch… the bike launched out from under me…
…and I landed on my butt.
That was was my first motorcycle experience. And I got up, dusted myself off, picked up the bike and got on it again and I rode off. And I loved it.
I knew, in that very moment… that I was a Motorcyclist.
And as we Riders know, it’s not all about the “bike”…
It’s about the FREEDOM,
and the INDEPENDENCE.
It’s about the CAMARADERIE with our riding-community,
and the CONNECTION to the environment – out in nature on the open roads.
It’s about the connection to Man and Machine!
In addition to my many years of riding, I also have the unique experience of filming a motorcycle documentary, riding my motorcycle 5,000 miles across America on the Trans-Am Trail… riding day-after-day for 35-days on some of the most challenging terrain and riding conditions you can image.
The excitement of motorcycle travel is out there waiting for us all.
