Life is full of responsibilities, but the moment I turn the key on my motorcycle, the cares and pressures of everyday life begin to slowly subside. At the end of a 70-hour week, the open road irresistibly calls out with the promise of freedom and excitement. I have been fortunate enough to find a group of enthusiasts that shares my passion for winding roads. As we set out, we had a front-row view of the receding clouds that had been threatening rain. The glorious sunlight poked through to reveal a sunny, 75-degree day. As we headed west, away from the mundane straight roads of Indianapolis, we made our way to Parke County, Indiana. A sea of budding cornfields, typical of late June, blanketed the rural landscape. We eagerly traded the four-lane Highway 36 for a country byway, IN 75, to inject some curve into our ride. My 2006 Triumph Speed Triple along with a 1979 Honda CB 750 Limited, a 1980 Honda CB 900 Custom, a 2003 Honda Shadow Spirit, a 2004 Honda Shadow Aero, and a 2007 Harley- Davidson Sportster add the soundtrack for the scenery. The engines of such a diverse group meld into a symphony I would never want to drown out with a radio.
