I don't think it was this sky that did it.
It could have been the yahoos at the ice scream stand. 4 of 'em on new bikes, dressed to the nines in their best sweatshirts.
Or maybe it was this picture that did the trick?
Hard to say what motivated me on Friday afternoon but I had the urge to ride - despite the stormy skies. I pulled the K75 out of the garage and I geared up, all the way to the rain suit. And I was smiling about it...let the skies open up, I'm ready, I will ride by the unprepared and laugh in their general direction.
Next time the mood strikes you, listen to your inner mileage hound, and gear up, get out, and ride!
