I hate driving... Actually, that's not strictly true; I quite enjoy driving but the other day the words "I hate driving" were definitely running through my head.
Picture if you will, a sunny afternoon and a driver (me) on his way home from playing a very tiring game of rugby. All was well until I hit traffic. So I'm now a hot, bothered, tired driver sitting in a traffic jam. I hate driving!
It's frustrating, sitting in traffic. Even more so when you're sat there sweating and motorcycle after motorcycle just seem to leisurely glide past. Why is it frustrating? It's frustrating because it could be me on that motorcycle, making my way through a traffic jam as if it's not there. I know where I'd rather be...
Looking back to my first paragraph, what I enjoy is the freedom of the open road and from this episode, I think it's fair to say that the open road is best enjoyed on two wheels! Those guys slipping past the traffic that day certainly looked like they were having a lot more fun than me. Lesson learned.
