  1. The Next 90 Miles (continued)

    The Next 90 Miles (continued)

    April 8. 6.5 miles, 43.1 miles total. Had to run errands, decided to take the motorcycle. Had to make quick shopping/bank stops then off to a clients site. Upon arriving I had to parallel park the bike on the street. A big open space is available, I pull right up and stop. The bikeís not quite in the position I want it to be so I attempt to move it.

    I keep tossing around in my head....this really isn't that hard.....it's seat time, it takes practice.

    When you learned how to ride a bicycle what happened? "well nothing, I had training wheels" - do they make training wheels for motorycles? And No I don't care if people laugh at me......Im a grandma for crying out loud, people probably EXPECT me to have training wheels, right?
