Exhaust Note THERE'S A RATHER WELL-KNOWN children's book by a man named Theodor Seuss Geisel—a.k.a. Dr. Seuss—that is often given to graduates, called "Oh, the Places You'll Go!" While its message addresses the universal journey of life and its challenges, I want to thrust it into the hands of every motorcyclist I meet and implore them, "This!" "Oh! The places you'll go!" You'll outrun a thunderstorm in the western Utah desert, hail pounding the asphalt behind you. You'll feel the first pink kiss of the sun as it rises over a cornfield in Indiana, and drink the best sweet tea of your life on a humid summer afternoon in North Carolina. When the temperature drops to 19 degrees on Loveland Pass in Colorado, you'll brake with wooden fingers, easing to a stop behind another group of equally frozen riders…but even as your fingers tingle and burn you'll all laugh at your shared foolhardiness before returning to your respective adventures, scattering into the snowy peaks. "Wherever you fly, you'll be best of the best. Wherever you go, you will top all the rest. Except when you don't. Because, sometimes…you won't." Oh, the Places You'll Go!
