“I couldn’t live by a rigid schedule. I try to live freely from moment to moment, letting things happen and adjusting to them!” – Bruce Lee
Is Bruce’s quote aptly describe how we feel when we are out riding?
I also loved this video. It nailed the question “why motorcycle make us feel free?”.
Here are some other notable principles of life that we can apply when we ride:-
“Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless – like water. Now you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup, you put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle, you put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.” – Bruce Lee
Always go with the flow and immerse ourselves with the surrounding and environment that we are riding in.
“Always be yourself, express yourself, have faith in yourself, do not go out and look for a successful personality and duplicate it.” – Bruce Lee
The cafe racer fan will testify to this in their pursuit to create the one and only custom machine in this world.
“A goal is not always meant to be reached, it often serves simply as something to aim at.” – Bruce Lee
Every road trip is a journey by itself…the destination is secondary.
“If you spend too much time thinking about a thing, you’ll never get it done.” – Bruce Lee
The next time your friend tell you he or she still thinking about picking up riding…ask them to stop thinking and just do it..they may like it or they may not..thinking alone won’t find you the answer.
“The less effort, the faster and more powerful you will be.” – Bruce Lee
Is that how the engineers in Bologna apply to their design philosophy?
