2014 has been one hell of a year for me and still is on some levels. Separation, leading to divorce, death of my beloved 10-year-old Beagle, Cruizer…work issues, deciding to leave Canada after almost 18 years and start over? So, what to do? Do I dwell on all the misfortunes I have experienced or do I try to hold on to the things I am and should be grateful for? Seems like such an easy question to answer doesn’t it? I should instinctively say I am THANKFUL for being alive, my family, my friends, my passion for organ donation, my dogs, my bike, my many many trips I am able to take, yet I am not completely convinced I feel this thanks deeply in my heart.
I think after I write this post and I’m reminded how fortunate I am, I hope to end with a truly genuine thanks. Let’s see how I feel as I write and post some of my favorite pictures from the Fall of 2014. I don’t BS, been told I offer too much information, TMI, but again this is me and what I like to do is actually write how I am felling in the moment and I just happen to share it with well? A few people around the world. ;-)
November 19th 2014 – My Seattle Day Trippin’ to AltRider!
All pics clickable and videos throughout this post…short clips
Mileage 678 KM’s – left at 0600 and arrive home at 1930. Weather? Perfect, cloudy, some sun, cool temperatures and NO RAIN!
I left in the dark and came home in the dark. LOVE my new Aux lights and the LED low beam. Truly helped me when I decided to ride a road in Washington called the Chuckanut Drive. More about that later.
Once again I made an impromptu decision to finally get down to AltRider to meet Erik to get some upper crash bars installed on my bike. Erik and I tried to arrange this prior to my X Country 2014 Trip Continue reading →
Feb 2-3 2013 (click on the pics and see the slide show)
Took a short 700 KM trip down to Seattle to ride up the Space Needle and spent the night in LaConner, Washington. Left in FOG, had some sun, came back in the cold rain. All in all great to get back on the bikes and just ride for fun!
Today was a great day to ride to AltRider. Why? It was not raining, cool enough to turn on a little heat, traffic wasn’t too bad, the AltRider gang were extremely friendly and helpful and I got to test out the ESA on the “infamous” I-5 from the border to Seattle.
