Bonding        

I used to see a prototypical Harley dude on a heavily customized bike regularly on my homeward commute. Over many encounters he would not so much as glance in the direction of the high-viz Aerostich wearing Jap-crap 250 rider that is me. Some years ago, I was caught in a torrential downpour that had me taking on a great deal of water in spite of the GoreTex Aerostich and he was a lost cause in jeans and a t-shirt. On that day he looked my way and gave a big grin and a thumbs up. Forever after he has acknowledged my existence with a nod or wave when our paths crossed.

Suffering a bit is good for the soul. Shared suffering even more so.
