I know I wasn't the only one who rode to work today. It was a gorgeous day.
After work I met a stranger for dinner. We wanted to talk about doing some riding together. She has a Genuine Buddy 125cc. She and I both belong to the River City Riders Forum. She posted wondering if there was anyone in her area willing to ride with her. She is a fairly new rider and I knew how difficult it can be to find folks to ride with. It isn't always easy for smaller cc folk to find each other.
It was a good first meeting. We both like exploring back roads, finding old homesteads, and taking our time.
I'm mostly a lone wolf when it comes to riding. Much of that has to do with my personality, but some of it has to do the whole fitting into the moto culture and finding a place. Dar, Princess Scooterpie, got me thinking with her post about Moto Attitude. She just took the bull by the horns and started a riding group. While that isn't my style. Responding to another rider looking for someone to ride with is something I can do. Who knows I might even like it. We'll see how it goes.
- 66F/19C and lots of sunshine for the ride to work.
- 86F/30C with stunning blue skies for the ride leading eventually home.
