My name is Michael Murray, and I am a "Motorcyclist".
many of you remember your first motorcycle experience?
was about 7 or 8 years old when my older brother got a "trail-bike".
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 the controls.
waited for that one day when he finally rode up to me, lifted-up the
visor of his helmet and said:
wanna give it a try? "
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…
I was on my butt.
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.
knew, in that very moment… that I was a "Motorcyclist".
as we riders know, it's not all about the "bike"…
about the FREEDOM, the ADVENTURE,
the EXPLORATION, and the INDEPENDENCE.
about the camaraderie with our riding community.
about the connection to the environment - out in nature on the open
road, or on the trail.
about the connection to Man-and-Machine!

miles across America on the Trans-Am Trail... riding day-after-day
