When you thumb the starter of a motorcycle, something happens.
As the pistons pump faster... so does your heart.
When you kick it into gear, release the clutch, your mind and body become focused on the road. The exhilaration builds with every twist of the throttle. You and your "bike" become one, and you feel more alive than you have ever felt before.
