It is rare when I don't have a bike insured during the Winter. My insurance expired a couple of months before Christmas and the weather was horrible, so I stalled. Then it rained & rained & rained & rained. Then the frost & ice came, it was dark and I just didn't feel like riding. We booked a short vacation for January and in the few weeks before we planned to leave, I usually stop riding just in case something happens. It would really make me mad to be in the hospital instead of a warm place. It is more prudent to take the car and play safe. My intention was to renew my insurance after our vacation, and today was the day
I am now insured to February, 2013 which includes half of next winter. I decide to head south wondering where to ride and then I impulsively went to visit my mechanic and what do I see . . .
he came over to me like he knew me and maybe he did. Everyone looks the same in a helmet. They were a small group of 4 riders heading somewhere for a Dim-Sum lunch. I wasn't sure what it was so I walked over and he told me that it was a Cafe Racer, using a Honda 750 donor bike. I really liked the paint colours and the solo seat. Must have been because Yellow is my favourite colour.
It really was a stunning bike and I liked it a lot. I have a Columbia Hi-Viz Flourescent Orange riding jacket which I don't wear much even though I purchased it nearly 3 years ago. So here is a rare photo of me modeling it
It was a great day for a first ride to nowhere special
