Too soon?

Maybe I was a bit hasty in putting the bike away for the winter.....

All good things...

Well, guess it's that time. I changed the oil,
cleaned the chain, put Stabil in the tank, and
connected the Battery Tender. High temperatures
next week will be in the 20's. Took it out for one
last ride. All good things come to an end...
 
Nasty few weeks. The wife developed Cellulitis and
has been in the hospital for 3 weeks. Almost lost
her. The nurses just happened to be in her room
changing a drug bag when they noticed that she
was slumped over. Checked and found no pulse
so they did CPR. She came right back but they moved
her to ICU for a couple of days to monitor more closely.
 
Doing better now though. They filled her with all kinds of
antibiotics and now she's been moved to a rehab center
for recovery. Hope she can come home soon. I usually
like to have lots of time for silence and solitude in living
a monastic life, but being a hermit for several weeks turns
out to NOT be something I like!!!

Monastery Trip

Rode to the monastery again, my bi-yearly time in solitude.

There was another part-time-monk-biker there too, on 
his Gold Wing:




Packed and ready to go!
Big Pelican case full of camera gear.



Brother Placid, 87 years old and stronger than me!




 Prayer time in the middle of the night.

Bike Night at Rudy's Drive-in!!!

We have a local A&W drive-in restaurant. The waitresses are even
on roller skates, just like the old days. I've never seen one have an "Oooops".

Every month they have a bike night:



A new Buell !!! (They're a Buell dealer too)



Interesting lighting under this Can-Am! Switches from red to blue to green constantly.



My V-Strom!!!



Rod's Ride-On PowerSports sponsored this Bike night. They sell many brands including Victory.
