Here it is the 9th of January of the new year and I have not posted a thing this year. I didn't even post Christmas Greetings, Happy New Year, poignant reflections on the past, sage predictions for the New Year, or any of the usual crap people post in their blog at this time of the year. I've made no New Years Resolutions as the futility of that exercise was learned by me, and probably you too, long ago.
I'll lament that I didn't ride more in 2007 and hope that I can do better in '08. The reasons for not riding more last year are many and I'll spare you the whinny details. I do think the blog is better when I ride more, I probably grouch and complain less here, at work, and at home, when I ride more so riding more this year would be a good thing. That is not a resolution to ride more, only an acknowledgment that I am happier with more miles behind me and more pictures taken. It's also stoopid to spend so much money on motorcycles and then not ride them. If I was going to spend a lot of money on something I didn't use I'd spend it on a boat and then at least I'd know why I didn't use it: I don't enjoy skiing, swimming, or fishing.
The Caponord has sat mostly idle for the last year except for occasional rides to work. As much as I like the bike, I ride it a tiny fraction of what I rode the first one I had. I should probably sell it or trade if for something useful like a Hayabusa or a Suzuki Burgman 650 scooter. Sorry, I guess I'm rambling but I'm still recovering from the three weeks I took off for Christmas....oh never mind, I'm going riding.
