I’ve never felt so wimpy as I did Monday when I saw this guy.
You sadly can’t tell from this picture but it’s raining pretty hard. I was walking to get myself some chai and I saw him zip past me and then get into this turn lane and wait for several minutes in the queue. All in the pouring rain.
Yes he’s a bad ass and he knows it. He waits patiently for his turn, so he can get where ever he’s going and on with his day. He’s on a cool retro Triumph, he’s wearing a leather jacket, a matte black helmet, and jeans. Yes in the rain with a leather jacket and jeans. He clearly couldn’t care less about the world.
I so rarely choose to ride in the rain these days since I don’t have to, and often I feel weak for not doing so, and this guy… damn this guy… made me feel like I wasn’t even good enough to even think about riding a motorcycle.
