Doing What You Love

This is the first post since the accident which I was involved in last year. The time flies and it has been 9 months since. The cuts and bruises on my right leg healed and left me with two scars. One above my ankle and one above my knee. I repaired the damage on the bike myself and the most expensive part which I had to replace was the right hand side fairing. It would have cost me $930 locally. I ordered it through a Yamaha dealer in Slovakia and paid $550 including shipping cost saving me around $380 for other items.

There has been a lot of opportunities for conversation about motorcycle riding following the accident. Many people asked me whether I will continue to ride. It’s interesting to observe on how many occasions people tend to give up their passion due to their relatives, loved ones, family or other challenges that get in the way. No matter what happened, it definitely did not discourage me from motorcycling as it has been my passion for over 25 years. I believe what drives many people in their activities that they love doing is the following motto:

Courage is doing what you’re afraid to do. There can be no courage unless youre scared.” – Edward Vernon Rickenbacker

Have you given up on any of your passions recently? What is it that has to happen to make you get back to what you once enjoyed doing?

Looking forward to hearing from you.
