When looking for a unique and personalized symbol to represent someone recently passed, some opt for the emblem of the motorcycle. The motorcycle is not a piece for everyone, and is specific to individuals who represent similar connotations of the vehicle itself.
Motorcycles often represent this freedom of spirit, and an attitude of daring and carefree nature. The individual who rides the motorcycle might be a little bit rough around the edges, might enjoy the feeling of the wind blowing and the sun shining down on their face. It feeds off of more masculine energies and an attitude that enjoys the freedom and exhilaration of the road. It can be a ride for those who seek a bit more danger and adrenaline, but that’s just what some of us are seeking from life.
Whether or not your loved one rode a motorcycle, had dreams of riding a motorcycle, or simply loved the aesthetic of motorcycles, it might be the choice based on just what symbolism we often associate with it. Perhaps your loved one liked to live life on the edge, or loved the need for speed. They might have enjoyed solitude, as one often rides a bike alone, or they enjoyed the feeling of camaraderie and community of going for a Sunday right with a group of friends on their motorcycles to lunch.
Freedom, excitement, energy, exhilaration, tough exterior - these are just some of the traits that can be reminiscent of a motorcycle. It tends to not just be a vehicle for transportation, but a lifestyle, a way of living, and a symbol for making the most of the time we have.
