|2004. I miss that bike.|
Rather than expound anew on life and motorcycles (same thing to me) for this anniversary entry, I thought I'd spend some time perusing my blog entries from the dim and distant past and refer you to some of my personal favorites.
I've hit the "Publish Post" button a bit over 300 times now and probably another 900 times after I noticed a typo and went back to fix it. In reviewing my past ramblings I found myself drawn to the earliest ones, possibly because it's been long enough since I wrote them that I've forgotten what I wrote.
Here are some favorites of mine that I enjoyed writing and later reading (there's ego for you):
Rumbling Road (of young love and Mexican food in 2006)
"Someday" Might Slip By (no time to lose)
Mr. Cheap Tour (the joys of learning to tour on a motorcycle)
Once A Rider (remembering my dear old dad)
The Best Days Are Free (a long ago ride on my first bike)
I Knew A Guy (yes, I ride a murdersickle)
Love Child (still seems plausible)
Ein Kliene Nachtmusik (and evening ride on a Rickman Matisse)
A Mouse In The Corner (Cycle Magazine & Friends)
The Back of the Shop (when motorcycle shops were real)
Inside the Helmet (no, it's not a vacuum)
Grim Fairy Tales (advice on buying a used bike)
As The Wheels Turn (a look, via cartoons, at my motorcycle life with Debbie, AKA "the Comely Passenger")
There were other entries of which I am still fond, and even a little emotional about on a level that I can't really explain, but I'll let the curious seek those out. For those of you reading regularly or just occasionally or maybe for the first time, I thank you for your kind attention, comments, and fortitude. I do appreciate them.
I seem to have put on a few lbs and ride slower now,
but otherwise I'm as charming and lovable as ever.
