Why do I ride a motorcycle?
I ride a motorcycle because I don't jump out of planes!

It's fun riding, gets me where I want to go, and also places I never thought to go before, 1 ride can last all day, or on a trip for weeks or so, and I can ride in most weather. Riding is basically rather cheap compared to jumping from a plane.

I would like to jump out of perfectly good airplanes but that costs too much. Tons of costs for the plane, fuel, pilot, etc. etc... and then only lasts about 20-30 minutes if lucky? Probably not good to be jumping with severe winds or heavy thunderstorms and lots of lighting, 19F-40F might be too cold for jumping, but all that is fine for riding and just adds more interest.
