I don't know, I've been talking to a friend this morning who says 'I'm looking forward to freedom' referring to passing a driving test. I fully understand where they are coming from, and to them it may make sense. But to relay on a vehicle to grant you freedom, surely there is something wrong there?
It may give you the opportunity to transport yourself form A to B faster than other means, but is that freedom? I like to think i have freedom, and i do, i have unlimited, endless, unimaginable freedom. I could walk out my front door right now and go anywhere i wanted, and with enough bits of queens headed paper in my pocket i could be in Scotland before the sunsets or Drinking a Twinnings in Hyde park by Tea time. Using my Bike i could go anywhere i wanted also, it may require more effort, but if something is worth travelling for then its justifiable.
