Actually, I am not 'experiencing' anything. I've been riding for years, and have put in many more miles riding than I have driving (I don't even own a car these days - I wouldn't use it). My dad rides, and his father rode before him, and my son (or daughter) will ride as well. Motorcycles are not 'new' to me.
Likewise, I am no stranger to hard drugs. I first tried cocaine when I was only 16. Now THAT was experimentation, and quickely led to trying crack, MDMA, hydromorphone, oxycodone, hydrocodone, and various other less memorable drugs. Most of these drugs I had tried before I'd ever smoked a cigarette. And why? Because there is no esoteric knowledge or experience to be gained by smoking a cigarette, and for that reason cigarettes were of no interest to me. Despite all this experimentation, the only drugs I continue to use to this day are marijuana, alcohol, and psylocibin mushrooms (which I haven't been able to find in more than a year). No, I have never done methamphetamine (though I have tried pharmaceutical amphetamines, which I haven't cared for), and I'm not particularily interested in changing that, especially not for a price.
There is also nothing new to me about 'earning respect'. I don't keep company that gives respect easily, nor do I give respect to those that are undeserving.
Professors come from all sorts of backgrounds. My Russian history teacher from last semester has been riding since he was 16 (he's in his 80s now). He still rides to campus every day that the weather permits. My current psychology teacher was once incarcerated in a maximum security prison. These are just two of the professors that I've had - surely there are many more exceptions to your stereotyping of professors.
So no, there is nothing for me to 'find out'. I already know.
And what about yourself? You know quite a bit about me now, yet you've been rather tight-lipped about your own story. Why is it that you consider yourself such an authority on respect, drugs, and motorcycles?
