My First Love

Bike & Clouds
You never forget your first love. Thankfully, I never sold mine. I get on that bike and all of my senses come alive. The smells, touch and sounds send 10 years of memories flooding into my head. I just love the first ride of the spring.

How many times do you have to take the rear view mirror to land this picture? I love the soft reflection.

I took the K75 out for the first time this year trying to get the ADV tag for Mass. I can run Garmin on the K75. I needed that, the back up instructions plus a map to find the place; but I ended up being the third person to get the tag.

You call this rough? Bah, 30 mph in 3rd gear is not rough!

Sandy Point on Plum Island was the tag. I think I'll come back when it's a little warmer.

I brought the good camera and glass with me. It was quite cold, I shot for a few minutes. The cloud cover was interesting to look at.

Spring it's so close you can taste it. Hope yours is going well!

Spring dropped-by to say hello last weekend, with sunny skies and warmer temps. Then it was gone! About a foot of snow on Monday pretty much crushed my hopes of an early spring.

Oh well. At least I got to ride a few hours on Sunday. That should hold me until spring shows up for good!

Hope things are going better for you. Hang-in there.

I can identify. Sophie wasn't my first two wheeled love. She was, however, the bike of my dreams. Sill is and still with me.

I killed my first love. The dealer brought her back to life as some sort of Ghola of her former self. So I traded her in on a better model.

I feel shallow...

Ara: It's only funny in hindsight. My life is a storehouse of funny things in hindsight....
