Yep, here in North America, summer continues until 2229 EDT on 22 September, the date and minute of the autumnal equinox.
And yesterday I led the last ride of summer 2014 with my Harley club. We had a fantastic day. It was sunny and warm, with beautiful roads to ride on in my home state of Maryland.
… on the backways and byways through farmland in central Maryland. We went to a diner for lunch (and had all-day breakfast!) Then we rode to a creamery for home-made ice cream.
It was a perfect day. Just what this biker needed for a break from the intensity of caregiving all year (the spouse is doing better, thanks) and exceptionally intense workload at the office.
I wore my Wesco motor patrol boots with jeans tucked into them. Man, I had forgotten how comfortable these boots were. These are by far the most comfortable of all of my Wesco boots. Photos below show me without much gear. I did wear my mesh jacket while actually riding, but not while seated in the baking sunshine.And what would a good motorcycle ride be without stopping for ice cream?As they say, “Live to ride, ride to eat!” with smiles all the way. I thank my fellow riders for their courage to follow me. I didn’t even get lost, thanks to the pre-ride I did on Saturday.
Life is short: ride!
