One thang I noticed this weekend: the bikes are out in FORCE now that the WX is predictably nice. I've been noticing the bikes for a couple o' few weeks now... it's a personal Rite O' Spring for me. Up until this year I'd be right out there with 'em but for various and sundry reasons I got rid o' Miss Zukiko last summer. I'm beginning to think that was a mistake. From an old post:
I think I'll keep my leathers. You may think I'm weird, but I just MIGHT buy a Can-Am Spyder RS. I didn't quit riding Miss Zukiko because I don't LIKE riding, I quit riding her because I don't have enough breath to horse her around and the sporting riding position is just too damned hard on my old bod, specifically my wrists and (what's left of) my forearms. The Spyder has a reverse gear, yanno? And wouldn't I look cool on one? Much better than those geezers on Gold Wing trikes, methinks.
That's an excerpt from the post about selling my love into (light, loving) bondage. My leathers are still hanging in the closet and I've begun thinkin' about a new moto. But I don't think it's gonna be one of those Can-Ams... it might could be one of these:
Yeah. In blue, just like that. I could see myself on one of those, easily, but I'll have to sell El Casa Móvil De Pennington first. I suppose I should get on that (no pun, of course).
