And, after work I managed to ride sixty or so miles. Friday is usually a night for making music, sharing ceremony, and hoping for peace with my friends at Neve Shalom. Tonight I did manage to get to Neve, but since I was on Isabelle I didn't have my instruments. Still it was good.
Yes, you read correctly, I rode Isabelle today. I had some bank business to take care of. It was important for me to get there before the bank closed. It was Isabelle or the car. This wasn't a very difficult decision. If this had been before Isabelle the choice would have been the car. Someone asked me if I was finding myself riding Billie less now that I have the Kymco. The answer is yes, and it is no. I still ride Billie to work nearly everyday, but the weekends usually belong to Isabelle. What is happening is, much like this evening, more often I'm choosing to take Isabelle rather than the car.
It was a beautiful night to ride. Isabelle really lights up the night. Her highlights seem as bright as the headlights on my Toyota Yaris. A very nice change from Billie. Billie's lights are rather anemic.
For me it is a three day weekend. The Courts are closed in observance of Martin Luther King Day. Heather doesn't have the day off. We know what that means. I'll be taking her to lunch.
Have a great weekend whether it be two days or three.
- 30F/-1C and clear for the ride to work.
- 53F/12C with a few clouds when I left the Courthouse.
- 45F/7C and clear when I arrived home.
