Two-wheeled paradise

Friday, March 03, 2006
There's nothing that can cure the blues quite like a good commute on a motorcycle. This morning, about 30 seconds before I left, I decided that the weather was glorious enough for me to ride my motorcycle in to work! This was, in retrospect, one of the best decisions I've made in a while.

My bike, a Triumph

They say that a bad ride on a motorcycle is better than a good drive in a car... and they're correct. Cruising up Highway 217 - historically one of my favorite roads. Yet, on a motorcycle, landing at work means I have a smile in the morning, not my normal grimace. I can't wait for the weather to warm up!

A quick note: Despite the relative comfort of light hiking shoes, the fact that they're so well ventilated leads to some very cold toes when travelling 70 miles per hour in 28 degree weather. Consider this a lesson learned... again. :)
