First: Change the Oil

It’s not that you haven’t already been on the journey. Probably many journeys. But occasionally you need a fresh start. Give the bike a good wash after a hard winter of cold and rain. Polish the chrome. Maybe add a new bolt-on part just to dress her up a bit.
            Life is a series of new beginnings. If that last sentence were any more cliché, it would bore you to tears like two ships passing in the night at the end of the day. But you get the idea. That’s what these next five months will explore. The journey. But also the destinations. And everything in between.
            I anticipate about 10,000 miles on my motorcycle from May through September. Some trips are already planned, especially the one to Colorado/Wyoming/South Dakota. Others will be simple, daily commutes to work. But like beauty, truth is everywhere. We just have to look for it. And I would love to have you along for the ride.
            So here we go.
