    I'm not a church-goer so I eased into the day by staying in bed until 7 am. Norty and I washed and waxed my car. Had no candy but I did have ice cream. All in all another successful day.

    Well I haven't got a new motorcycle in forever ... so I test rode one yesterday. Trying to live a more spartan aesthetic non-material life I first turned down even looking at the bike ... but the guy brought the bike to a place near my son's and even insisted I test ride it ... on a trail in the dirt.

    Man is that sucker TALL. 38" and I have a 29" inseam. O yeah I flat footed it ... not. I could barely tip tippy toe it, the guy must have weighed 250 so the preload was way up there. So the guy said "I haven't ridden it in a while but this trail goes about a half mile and ends in a parking lot where you can turn around ..."

    I go over a hill ... and at the bottom is a huge trail wide mud puddle ... and there were about 7 hills with big muddy puddles at the bottom of each including a couple with drop your tire in holes ... as in tire drops in and you make like Superman over the bars ...

    ... and the trail ended in a huge swamp.

    No I did not drop the man's bike ... but there were a few tense moments. And I returned it very muddy. But it was his dang trail. There is no way on hell I would have let a stranger ride my bike on a trail like that ...

    Of course like anything else where you narrowly avert disaster ... I have decided it was fun.

    The best thing you can buy for your motorcycle is gas.

    Happy to hear that you didn't drop the guy's bike. Love your attitude about narrowly averting disaster.

    Who needs a refill?
