Why we ride bikes

May 26, 2009 by


Seven-time F1 champ Michael Schumacher has spoken out on his two-wheeled racing escapades, saying he finds motorcycle racing more of a thrill than four wheels.

In a recent interview, Schumacher said:

“It is very different, you have to learn it from scratch — and exactly this is what makes it so fascinating for me. You know, on four wheels I know it all, there is nothing more I can learn or achieve. On two wheels though, I am just like a kid, trying out everything. Of course the feeling I have for driving, for lines, for tyres or my experience in racing situation helps me a lot, but in the end you are much more active with your body on a motor bike. And as it is so direct, the sensation is even higher. I really like it, it is big fun.”
