Ok, virtual reality gamers don’t cop the wind blast, the heat on their legs from the headers, the whiff of unspent fuel, the vibe from the engine, the G forces of an endo, the gut-churning feeling of hitting gravel mid-corner, or the sheer childish thrill of performing a wheelie outside the cop shop.
So how are we ever going to get these youngsters hooked on riding?
We desperately need the younger generation to become motorcyclists or the research and development for new models will dry up!
So I give thanks to the hipsters of the world.
They may not be into bikes for the same reasons we were at their age, but at least they are into them and not sitting in their bedrooms playing with themselves … or gaming against opponents online!
At least chopping and dicing a motorcycle into a brat street tracker or scrambler cannot be attained on a computer screen.
Or can it?
