Riding with a cigarette?

Just wanted to put something out there.
Can anyone who smokes explain to me what the point is of lighting up a cigarette right after saddling up? I see it all the time we're by certain bikers light up and then go for a ride.
don't get me wrong, I do enjoy the occasional cigarette but how do you ride 40 miles an hour with no windscreen with a cigarette in your mouth and all that wind in your face? Is it just the cool factor or are you actually enjoying your cigarette? I'm not trying to be sarcastic I'm just trying to understand the logic behind it 🤔🤔

You can say anything stupid. It's the internet. No real consequences for YOU.

I long ago stopped worrying about other peoples proclivities and habits that made them happy.

I found that pondering such things distracted from my happiness.

Live and let live!

I was never a true smoker, but I used to smoke a good cigar occasionally and would smoke one while riding every now and then. Behind a windshield.

Same reason that people smoke after sex except that is at the end of the pleasure instead of the beginning pleasure of a bike ride.

I am an ex smoker but can relate.

It's all fun and games until the cherry blows off the butt and starts a wild fire. Yup ... it happens all the time.
