Every boy’s dream machine.. Every man’s ultimate obsession
It starts early, YES it does, Very early in fact.
The boys at a very early age get attracted to the machine — be it a bike or a car, and then the obsession of riding or driving takes over. This feeling carries on and on till every breath.
The macho might get ultra busy in their lives and wives but the affair between their machines and them does not get over. The speed takes over, the thrill exhilarates and the fear of death vanishes. Such is the passion of the machine and the man!
The want of taking the machine to some far away place all alone and the thrill of riding the winds is the ultimate passion for any man. Okay, there might be some exceptions I have yet to come across.
I was young when I saw this ad of the BULLET machine which then targeted the common man and was to be seen in many a places.
And so I wanted to ride it. And I did. O what a scandal it was.
But the thrill got me there and then and I fell in love with the machine. Then I tried all the Yamaha, Hero Honda and the Bullet. What a thrill.
Then came the others which I still haven’t laid my hands on but would love to one day.
All the boys drool over the Ducati and the Harley’s. Some possess and show off too. Ohh what a feeling it must be to possess one of these devils.
For some it is a sport they want to play all their lives and for some it is a passion. But ohhh how the machine lures them all is to be seen by the eye and felt by the thumping heartbeat.
For some it is a forgotten dream which they would love to relive one day. For some it is like their first crush which they will never forget and for some it is a dream come true.
And the latest as I see now. I still feel the urge to hear the engine roar and the power to take over the roads and fly to horizons never seen before…..winds never felt before….. skies never touched…..dangers unseen and fears unknown.
…and did I hear that seasons have taken a toll.
