Re: losing motivation to ride?

I have to say, in my daily life, I really get very little time to just sit with other guys and visit. Even my weekends don't see much of that. I've never really had a friend close by that I see on a fairly regular basis where we just kind of keep tabs on each other and keep each other grounded. As much as I enjoy my solo rides, or even the occasional group rides for a day, what really draws me is those times where I will be able to sit and really get to know someone. Pie runs are fun, but people come and go so fast that I am lucky to get to speak with them for a few minutes at most. I really enjoy the trips I sometimes get to do, typically being 6-7 days of riding with maybe 2-3 other guys. Camping is fine. Hotels are fine. But, either way, I enjoy the conversations around camp after the ride, in the morning when breaking camp, during lunches/dinners, etc,... Even the long drives in the truck to get to the area where we will be riding for the week are fun. You can really get to know someone when you have 18 hours each way to kill... I have been fortunate to have done some really great trips over the years, each with a great group of riders. That I get to share something like riding motorcycles in incredible places is just icing on the cake!

Guys like these


In places like this!








Or these guys,


In places like these, all on the same trip!


















And also with my kids in places like these,

Sarah in Utah and Colorado at age 11




Daniel in Arkansas at age 10




Sarah in Arkansas at age 12




Daniel in Arkansas at age 10


Rachel in Arkansas at age 8, first time for her without training wheels


The grass was deep but she kept at it, determined to ride with the older two later in the day


Daniel happy to be riding with the "big boys"


Rachel, Daniel and Sarah, about to head out with me


Sarah worked at challenging herself and stretching her comfort zone on this trip


But this was a little more than she wanted to attempt...


Daniel proud of the dirt on his new ride but totally bummed that it is about time to head home



I have so many more thousands of pictures like these with so many other great folks in them. You might think that after a while it would get old taking these kinds of pictures and making these kinds of friendships and memories, but it never does. I'd do it all the time if I could get the time off and could afford to do it. I totally love it. I especially like the challenging dual sport and dirt rides because they so often involve everyone working together to get everyone through the adventure in one piece. That shared adventure creates a bond.

If you find your interest in riding waning, I highly recommend sharing some of the riding with other riders. I love solo rides, but I love sharing rides as much or more.

Re: losing motivation to ride?

I wonder for the older guys if the waning has anything to do with prescription drugs. If one takes blood pressure meds, statins and whatever, they definitely have an effect on how you feel, your motivation. Many individuals in their 60's take such meds. I know some of my meds make me dizzy sometimes, which makes me less motivated at times.

Re: losing motivation to ride?

Having the right bike can make a huge difference. Houston is typically either too hot or too cold. Your Streetie and V7R are just not the ideal year-round bikes. At first, I thought a naked bike would be great for Summer riding, but I have since come to realize that at ambient temp above 92F (typical skin temp), too much wind exposure actually makes it worse. You'd be better off being fully geared on a bike that you can control the wind exposure to JUST ENOUGH AIR FLOW for sweat evaporation cooling. My Trophy SE let's me do exactly that.

Then in the colder months, I can just about shut out the cold wind entirely and ride comfortably in the lowest temps Houston can serve up.

Sometimes I do miss my Speed Triple R, but I just cannot justify road bikes that I would only ride in perfect weather.

Re: losing motivation to ride?

As for Houston traffic... I live in Missouri City and commute to NW Houston, so I ride the very same streets you do. I personally find the act of riding with 100% attention devoted to defensive riding and hazard avoidance very refreshing. This may sound counter-intuitive, but it forces me to clear my mind of all extraneous thoughts and concentrate on the very task of surviving through traffic.

That said, the antics some Houston drivers display can be really discouraging. If you dwell on the vulnerability part of riding a motorcycle, you'll scare yourself back to safety of the cage. Instead, focus on capitalizing on the unique advantages of being on a nimble, fast machine that can get out of trouble spots and get to safer zones quicker than most other vehicles on the road. As soon as you get away from one hazard/bonehead/dickhead/texter/maniac/etc., forget about it, and start scanning for the next one.

Do your best to be as conspicuous as you possibly can. Ride a slender roadster wearing black leather, and you'll practically disappear from most drivers' field of view. Instead, wear Hi-Viz, ride a bigger bike, and move around.

Maybe its winter blues. Maybe its the same old Gulf Coast/Houston roads. Wow do I wish for a cruise on my home turf of SW Colorado. Tried to get myself on my Triumph today, and it was a decent day: opted for a nap, then bicycle ride instead. Oh well....carry on.
Funny you mention this, as I have noticed this lately as well..

My schedule is full all sorts of conflicts that makes riding difficult late.

The weather this winter has not been very cooperative when I can ride. I'll ride down to freezing temps, but its been very wet this year.

I haven't been on TWTEX in weeks (if not months) to even check on rides.. I finally got on tonight to see what's been going on and check on some possible upcoming Pie/RTE runs..

Do you have friends that ride? Since moving to Texas I haven't really made any friends that ride. That is a big part of why I don't ride as much.

Come to think of it, one of the guys I have been playing hockey with does ride, and we only made it to hidden falls once... I think I know who I will be reaching out to this week.

As Scott mentioned, hobbies often come and go.. Some stay with you, other's don't... And sometimes they just evolve... My days of sportbikes and track days are over, but that just made room for more dual-sport riding.

Maybe a nice inspirational video <insert preferred video here> will help?

Re: losing motivation to ride?

At 66, you guys are depressing me! lol, get out and ride while you can. I still can't get enough, started at 15. I think it helps I do 3 different disciplines. One gets a little stale do the other. But I always come back to single track.

Of course buddies to ride with help! PKiser, Jfink, and Rsquared

I have also found that the longer I go without riding or taking pics, the more I tend to lose interest. However, the more I do them, the more I get into them. It's kind of strange, but I think it boils down to us being creatures of habit. If you have a habit of riding, you will tend to want to ride more often because it is just part of your routine. If you get out of the habit of riding, it becomes more work to go riding because it disrupts your current routine. Disrupting your routine usually generates negative feelings unless you are disrupting it for something much better, like say a trip to Colorado



I bet if you made a point of getting out and riding, you'd start getting more into it and enjoying it. Being in Sugar Land makes it tough though...


@Tourmeister I think you have something here with the “routine” angle. The more you settle into a habitual routine, the more you get comfortable in that... and, the more you don’t want to disrupt it.

That’s why I force myself at some point, when I feel like I’ve settled too deeply into a comfortable routine, to take a trip or go shoot something all day.

I’ve traveled a lot. Both on the bike (still riding the Honda nc700x), back country hiking, backpacking in other countries, etc. And honestly, I always have to drag myself out kicking and screaming internally. I’m never exited to be heading off and away from a comfy routine. But, once you break free and are “en route”, something inside wakes up.

Re: losing motivation to ride?

Wow, this thread hit buttons for many.

Yep, I take both statins and BP meds. I wonder if there is a correlation? I also exercise a lot and I am very healthy.

I am motivated right now....but endless rain here in Sugar Land. Yesterday I ventured out on the Guzzi: winds blew me around.

Naw, I have two fantastic motorcycles: one fast and nimble, one pretty and Italian. And I can handle the weight of both and they fit my short frame. I handle summer heat by riding very early in the day.

Road construction...everywhere....really is an issue right now: increases overall risk.

Well said, and I agree completely, in particular the DS comment of working together in challenging terrain.

And if pictures like that don't make a person want to ride, then maybe it is time to look for another hobby!

This is for sure true for me. My schedule makes it really hard to find times that match up with local people for me to ride with. It definitely makes a difference to me. When I have people to share activities with (running, cycling, motorcycling, etc) I am much more motivated to do it.

Trying to gauge interest in a meet and eat tonight for us East Texas riders, it'd be about a 100 mile round-trip for me. The weather's suitable, I'm on my own for dinner, a ride and a meal sounds like good therapy
I personally haven't lost any interest in riding but several of my local riding buds have. A few years ago we would have at least a dozen show up for our monthly dinner rides (some had over 40). Lately, there's been NO interest. I've had something with a motor and two wheels since I was 10 - I'm closing in on 60. Guess I'm one of those that as long as I'm not a danger to myself and others, I'll ride. And yes, Arkansas roads, Texas hill country, and many others are really great but after a weekend visit to daughter in the metroplex, I'm thrilled to have the backroad riding in East Texas at my front and back door. Ride Safe.

Re: losing motivation to ride?

Here's another slant on this question, most the people I know who have lost interest in riding have gotten 'old'. All the friends I have that still ride, still seem 'young'. Think of riding as an exercise program that will keep you young; then get out there and do it. It has got to be better than going to the gym!

Re: losing motivation to ride?

Had along talk about it with the wife over the last week. I'll be selling a couple of bikes and getting rid of the RV this spring. I'm not losing interest in riding, but I'm not as interested in crashing on a dirt bike as I once was. Been there, done that, using the tee shirt as a shop rag. The only age related issue for me is recovery time. As it is, too many projects and not enough time.

Re: losing motivation to ride?

I ride less than I used to. Sunday morning rides are no longer a weekly deal. I travel overseas for work so no more need to commute on my bike. I haven't taken a multi day trip in over a year.

My Sunday morning riding group fell apart and eating breakfast at Orsaks alone isn't something to seek out.

BUT I have high hopes. New neighborhood and there's some guys here that ride. And I'm buying my sons Duc 695 as an addition to the fleet just to get back on a small bike and rail it. Now all I need is a big trip and I'll be back.

Sometimes you just need to take a pause. It will either call you back or it won't. And nothing beats that feeling when you are hitting the road after the first night at the hotel / camp now does it?

I'm also an amateur photographer a d I also go through waves with both riding and photography.

However, I find that I have to take breaks sometimes in order not to burn out in either hobby. To me, taking breaks rejuvenates my interest rather than dulls it. In photography specifically I can take a step back and focus on the bigger picture (sorry for the obvious pun) in order to not get stuck in a rut. If I push myself to shoot all the time I end up doing the same thing, shooting the same thing and looking at the scene the same way, which is not progressive for me.

With riding, I was commuting to work on the bike and that burned me out. For me, riding is best left as recreation. That said, I still ride 10k+ miles a year. Just not in traffic.

When I lose motivation to ride. I step back and do something else. Nothing wrong with that. Once after a break like this I thought about selling the bike, but then I started it up and rode it, and my passion was back in full swing.
