but I didn't go. I was thinking about it but I am trying to be more practical in my older years.
I was getting my Nu2Me BMW ready for next season and I think all I need is some RAM mounts, spline lube, rear drive flush and new rain gear. I'm still thinking about a new GPS. I have already purchased a new riding jacket, new full face modular helmet which is just waiting for my Sena to be installed . I have already upgraded my sleeping bag and self inflating pad since last year .
Saturday was the best day for me to see the show but I wasn't feeling that great and with no one to keep me company I just didn't feel like driving the 1-1/2 hours each way (3 hours total), pay the $6. parking and just walk around looking at stuff that I didn't need so I came home and took a nap
After my nap I was feeling a bit better so I went shopping to pick up stuff for dinner. By the time I got home with my grocery supplies it was time to get dinner started
Sometimes I wished that I had someone to share my riding with. Those of you who have built-in riding partners are lucky. There is no one I know that lives near me . I don't have a regular riding buddy and with our tailgating and aggressive drivers I found it just easier to take the car to work. I did much less commuting to work during 2012 than in previous years but most of it was due to our construction project and difficulty of getting my bike "out". Then when Mrs Skoot broke her wrist I had to chauffeur her home from work every day as she was not allowed to drive.
We seem to get our worse weather during January-March so we are still in the grip of Winter. I normally don't ride when it is below 4°c due to frost or fog so we still have a few months to go before our riding season begins but it is a good time to be staring at maps and dream . . . of what 2013 will bring
