End-of-summer blues


I did my last motorcycle ride in Alaska for the year. The snow was falling last weekend. I was worried I was going to wake up to a foot of fresh snow in Anchorage, and not have the bike ready for winter. This was on account that I am being snotty and refusing to believe that winter is actually here.

*Sigh.* I have also been hedging on whether or not to sell my trailer. Normally, I store my Alaska motorcycle along with all my pedal bikes in the trailer for the winter. This year I figured I would sell the trailer and just keep the bikes in the garage. I went to the storage lot and found a flat tire on the trailer. A quick 15 minute errand turned into a couple of hours by the time I was finished.

I think I will keep the trailer.

I spent the weekend washing the mud off my gear and packing everything up. I was like a pouting child. I got STA-BIL in the tank. It’s already for storage.

Somewhere in the back of my mind lies the thought, “If it’s sunny this weekend, maybe I can add more STA-BIL?”

Of course, the BMW is in Phoenix. It should be cool enough to take a nice November stroll.

  1. Good thing you're waiting until November to ride in AZ. Today is probably the last 100 degree day … but no promises!

  2. ooohhhh.
