I miss the two-wheel experience. Both my motorcycle and bike. I spent a lot of time on a seat between two wheels. But in the last 10-15 years it’s just renting bikes at the beach on vacations or at a friend’s house. The motorcycle has been gone for double-digit years now. But I would like to return to putting in some seat time and exploring.
I’ve been thinking of hitting the local bike shop and might do that after I see what is wrong with my foot next week. I just scanned the local shop’s website and it appears that things have changed a lot since my last bike purchase. There were bicycles that cost 5 digits. Don’t worry, I won’t be spending anything like that.
It’s so dangerous riding around here that I would probably get a rack for the car and mostly use them at the beach and at my friend’s home on Kent Island. Then again some rides at dawn might be possible out here in the town of Woodstock.
All I do know is that I miss getting on a bike and when I do it feels so right again. So if my health holds out you will see me on a bike again.
Random Thoughts of the Day
- Sometimes I think a slow-moving stream is peaceful. Then I see a sleeping child and peaceful is redefined.
- Tomorrow I will think about being very alive with a short drive with the top down. Then a celebration of life for an old work friend with a few tears and then gathering with my best friends who I usually end the evening dying of laughter. I think Jim Valvano said something about that being a full day.
- I’m not happy about this loan forgiveness program for college loans in what little I have heard about it so far. I’m going to go read through it and there better be something in it for us responsible ones who paid off our loans.
