I brought home my Goldwing on his date in 2004. I remember quite clearly the first song to eminate from the radio - "Peaceful, Easy Feeling" by The Eagles. Whether you believe in omens or not, that was a good sign. On my way to work this morning, it hit 19,000 miles.
I've been avoiding driving my truck this week, for reasons that may be explained in a later post, and Monday-Tuesday were lovely days. Because they were lovely, and Wednesday morning was sunny, I didn't look at the thermometer before I left for work. Wow: 43°. That's a bit chilly when riding a machine that makes its own windchill. My lower limit for cycling to work has usually been 55°. A new and somewhat brisk low, and short-lived. My commute is less than two miles.
I looked at the thermometer before I left this morning: 39°. A second new low in as many days. Should be closer to 50° than 40° Friday morning. I hope it's warm for the weekend, so I can see about fixing my truck.
