After a couple of months, went out with John again. Knowing John, I was guessing that he would show up with yet another bike. He did not disappoint me. In the 40 odd months that I have known him – I met him at the motorcycle safety classes – this Honda Rebel 1100 is his ninth bike that I have seen him with!!!
He is certifiably crazy about bikes.
Had a good time riding around Lake Lanier and then grabbed lunch at Pig Tales.
Put in over 60 miles… mostly running errands for home.
On the 39th month of riding my first and only motorbike ever…
Sunday afternoon coffee ride.
Learned the lesson from yesterday. Did not layer up enough for a 45 degree motorbike ride (the wind made it worse). Today, I was perhaps overlayered. Took a very circuitous route to my weekend afternoon coffee place, enjoyed some coffee aged in bourbon barrels and caught up on Montaigne.
Check out my answer when the lady asked me what name she should write on my cup!
Finally opened the Christmas present that the family gave me… motorbike jacket that matches the motorbike color!!!
The weather in Atlanta warmed up enough to let me ride to Ballground and settle in the coffee house there for the rest of the day for office video calls and meetings. Rode back in the evening when it was a tad bit cooler.
Relive the ride here…
