When I first bought the scooter I was very determined to ride in all weather except for ice and snow.
40 degrees F? Yes, no problem!
30 degrees F Hell Yes!
20 degrees F Well maybe not hell yes, but okay!
10 degrees F Well now you're pushing it, but I've done it
This year? Well.....
I admit to being less aggressive in the cold this year. Oh, I've been out there, but not near as regularly.
I've needed the car more when at work. Somewhat true.
I've been walking more. True but does not account for the that much of the difference
Weekends have been busier, less free time. True definitely
The heart doesn't like cold weather quite as much. True
The weather hasn't been cooperative. Somewhat true
But then again, most of those are just what I say they are, Excuses!
I need to ride more!
I got Max out this morning. It was about 30 degrees. Hadn't ridden in about 3 weeks. He started up as if to say, "Hey, How You Been!, Where we going today?" Fired instantly on the first push on the starter.
I've been trying to make some plans for the summer and fall. Maybe some longer type trips. Been thinking about even coordinating some of those with a little camping (which I haven't done in ages) and even some long hikes. Saw a movie recently about hiking. Sort of liked it. It's healthy for my heart. Hmmmm.
And another book report might be on the way soon, but the book wasn't near as good as Jack's book.
But for now, we are heading into another "tax season" at work. Lots to do, little free time. Most riding will just be to work and back.
But I hope to do more of that!
Ride On and Carpe Diem , my friends.
