What Are You Willing To Do?

Spring time is for the renewal of Mother Earth and all of her creatures. A time for those creatures to awaken, leave the safety of their den, and start to live again. So, it shall be in AzHD land like the bear waking from a long winters nap....emerging from the shadows to stretch, begin to explore, to get out to start living, and riding again.


So, my first day out of hibernation was to meet up with Boston for breakfast. She and a couple of friends had been out enjoying Arizona Bike Week and seeing the Doobie Brothers.  Yea, I don't understand that either.

It has been a struggle in my world the last few months, but I am seeing a light at the end of the tunnel.
Then today, like someone turned on a switch, it came to me. "What are you willing to do?"

"What the Hell am I willing to do?" 

It is now under serious consideration. Me and thinking is normally a dangerous situation.

Cool Place to Park a Motorcycle?

Gary France, over at Flies in Your Teeth, has a picture contest for a cool place to park your bike.

My submission should count for a downright cold place to take a picture. This is from a Spring Break ride in 2008. It is on Highway 36, leaving Red Bluff, California, crossing over the Shasta-Trinity National Forest, heading over to Del Rio, California, to get to Highway 1.


The woman working the desk at the motel I stayed at suggested it would be perfect weather. She said she had been there just a couple of days earlier and there was very little snow.  It was about 25 degrees and the coldest I have ever been. Once going up the hill there was no turning around with the trailer on the ice covered road. Just another quality ride that I will remember for ever.
