    It's time!!

    O.K.

    I see the trees have finally stopped swaying in the wind and I no longer hear the rains pounding on the roof. The sun has come back to the solar system and the temperatures are finally seasonal.

    Our trip to Milwaukee for our daughter's college graduation is history and her home visit with us will be over tomorrow. We actually took the bikes out a few times while she was home!! I'll miss her, she's moving to Chicago.

    I only need to take my wife to one more driving lesson. She will then be qualified to drive her enhanced vehicle and she won't be totally dependent on me for getting out and about (her license has already been up-graded). I sense a bit of free time in my future.

    On my favorite bike I've installed a new chain, new rear brake pads and dust boot, a new Axiom rear rack and a set of panniers.

    It's time to get out and ride!!

    Can see where your priorities lie. That wicket fence needs painting

    Summer has arrived over here aswell.Except for the wind and a Respite from the 70f+ temps next week when it will be a bit cooler. Great news on the wifes licence. Will give both you and her a bit of independance so more riding on the cards.

    There are a few rotted boards that need to be replaced as well. Better get busy, you have a lot of work to do before you can go play.

    I look forward to all those adventure pictures to come.

    The weather here has been in & out and I haven't gotten out as much as I want to. A week in May was spent on my Ducati riding the BRP with friends. My son got married last Saturday, it's been windy as hell and we are preparing for a trip on Monday to Amsterdam. Hopefully there will be more consistent riding once we get home.
