Minerals, ah Reno area, I still haven't ridden up there but have heard about the awesome single tracks and the many mountain ranges to explore. If I can get up there I will contact you for a tour.
I guess that 500cc 2 stroke hits pretty hard!

Lots of nice looking bikes here. Scole, your Girlie looks like it could be the best approach tool of the bunch. And it looks great in roulette green.

Though I'd be happy with a bone stock Triumph Daytona 675. That triple sounds so good to my ears.

OK, I posted this on another thread. But it is motorcycle related, so I am putting it here too...



Wierd day. I did not sleep well last night. All day a persistent fatigue has consumed me. I am on edge from new pain and growths I feel in my neck and groin.

So I made chocolate chip cookies to cope.

And breakfast, bucher bacon and eggs, organic blueberry pancakes, coffe and OJ. Then this afternoon, just as I started pasta and meat sauce, the phone rang.

Actually, Ruth's phone rang. She had just left for the store, and left her cell.

It kept ringing, then my phone too. "What the hell?" It was our boss at the yoga studio. THe web schedule said Ruth was off. But the board at work said she was on. The owner was in San Fran and could not make it. Everyone else was not answering. "Crap!"

I tried to start the Harley, my only availible ride. No go. I run back inside and stir the pasta. Maybe the bike flooded.

I run out and try again. It fires. But the choke is broke. I wedge a pebble in to hold it open and run back to the stove. As I stir I call the boss.

"You find anyone?"

"NO, Damn, what now?"

"I'll go start the class and leave a note for Ruth."

"Really?"

"Well, f*#k, someone has to get there." I hung up and tested the pasta. Two more minutes. THe gloves were in the truck and I forgot my warm jacket as I puled on my leathers, Drained the pasta and stirred it into the sauce. "Good enough."

Helmet, glasses, out to the bike.

I flick the stone out of the choke and blast off coughing. THe cold engine makes me cringe. 'yah, boy!" On the freeway and up past the limit. It feels good to do something silly and dangerous again. It is cold!

I roar in front of the studio and rush in in a shiver. Suprise greets me. "Let's do this thing!" I shout as my helmet comes off. I grab a towell, the mike and some water. Off to the room.

It is full. Good grief. I strip right there out of my leathers down to the shorts I had put on at home to save time. "You get the full Humphrey tonight, I guess." I launch into an impromto act, yoga, stand-up, corrections and philosophy spew from my mouth for 90 minutes in the 100+ degree room. 'It's Showtime!'

I end with a gasp. Ruth arived but I had continued. Talk about jumping into the pool. I have not taught for months and was afraid I could not. I forgot a few things. Just laughed it off and went on.

I am tired!

Ruth is still there. She is coaching for the demonstration / comp in Stockton next week.

Whew!
