A Thanksgiving Remembrance

This is just a link to something I wrote a few years ago about the Holiday Season and a particular story from a Native American viewpoint.

It is actually my most viewed single blog posting (by far).

Hope you enjoy if you're reading it for the first time.

Hope you have a fond memory if you have read it before.

Carpe Diem my good friends!

A Wise Man Once Said....

Embarrassingly, I had not even started Max for about 4 months.

Did he hesitate?

No!

Not even for a second.


Sometimes I wonder if my mind is going around in circles especially with regard to riding.

But Bobskoot suggested to me that perhaps I just needed to go for a ride.

So I did!

Not a long ride. And it was a bit chilly. Last night we had our first hard freeze. And silly me, I had my summer gloves on. But I did have my gear jacket on, and some heavy jeans. (I forgot what cold hands on a bike felt like)

Max ran like a champ. It felt good. 


Almost hate to admit this, but Max has been up for sale. But no offers. Not even any bites. 

Therefore,,,,

There may be more rides, and ride reports in the future.

This bothers me

I went to pick up some Korean food for dinner tonight and saw this bike parked on a sidewalk. 

Good grief! Does the world owe this person some kind of favor! I can't park a car where he did. And I wouldn't park Max there either.


It's wrong. It's rude. And I think people will  react negatively to bikers in general.

Ironically, probably about 30 yards away is a covered parking garage with designated motorcycle parking available. 

Maybe this person can't walk that far but I doubt that. 

It just bugs me.


Ride on and Carpe Diem my good friends.
