I took Joe's advice and rode my
bike. I did a nice little 20 miler
this evening at dusk and ended
up back at my place after dark.

Beautiful time to ride.

I felt lost! So nice 33 miler after work. How many of you did rides, longer than noramla rides, or did you all sit and stew and feel sorry for yourselves?

I rode my bike and discovered that I have a wife, kids, and a dog. Where the hell did they come from?

Withdrawal symptoms were extremely painful on this end. However, it was amazing the other things I got done.....

I had to work the last 2 days! uggggg I hate that word.
So yesterday I went out and rode in the rain and got wet and everything, lots of lightning but they missed me.
Glad 50+ is back up. I need my daily fix.

DeeGee must be happy I seen him cross over to BJ forums.

Ride and be FREE
