All riding is EXPEDITION.
Not only the first adventurous course, but also the riding on familiar course that we riding every time gives us different experience and feeling. The seasons change all the time and the weather changes every time. The direction of the wind most important for rider is also different. Sometimes we are so insensitive that we do not get to know the changes and feelings.
The word expedition has some possibility of failure.
If you think that just returning with "safe" after going somewhere is the whole of riding, it is difficult for riding to be expedition. Some riding faster than last time, perfect cornering where I failed last time, not losing tempo in spite of headwind, laying down everything, feeling syllabic and grassy smell all over ... etc. It is much better than that, but some riding is also left behind.
Also, in expedition, there are some things that you have not thought about, something that you may encounter. Sometimes it's good, but sometimes it's not. If it is good, we just enjoy it that much, and if it is not good, we will grow a bit more mature with proper handling without losing calm. If there is a day, each other as there is night. There are elements that are opposite.
So, expecting something that I did not even think about today ... I go riding with the heart of EXPEDITION.
