On our recent long motorcycle trip, I realized that the pain in my back from sitting in one position too long was responsible for keeping me alert. Between that stabbing pain and the dull headache I developed from the wind making my bike constantly shake and my teeth rattle, it got me home in one piece.
TAKE AWAY: I am constantly amazed at the level of
discomfort I can withstand to do the things I love doing.
The fun of being outdoors, the wind in my face and the freedom
of riding on two wheels outweighed the nagging aches & pains
sometimes, but not always, associated with it.
