Merry Christmas: Motorcycles and Babies

Merry Christmas! I’m celebrating with Family and I hope you all are too.

Just a little update since it’s been way too long since I’ve posted anything. I’m still riding the Hyperstrada , in fact I just had two new tires put on it last week and had it’s first Desmo Service done since it’s got 19,000 miles on it now.

Soon, too soon however I’ll be having to drive the car more. The Blueberry of Doom will need a ride to Day Care, and despite my best efforts I can’t figure out a way to do that with the motorcycle. Well not one that a sane person would seriously consider. Which means my days of riding are coming to a big slow down. Probably for the next several years.

Which is a bit of a sad thought on such a joyous day.

It’s a good thing my beautiful little girl is worth it. Even though I’ll will really miss the motorcycling.


About MotoCynic

I started riding motorcycles in 2006, and there is no going back. I've ridden more than 100,000 miles, most of it on a Ducati Monster, and despite setbacks and murderous BMW's I'm loving every mile.

    It’s just a season…and it makes the days that you do get to ride, all that much sweeter!

    That is an adorable photo! My coworker had to sell all of his (dirt) bikes and buy a mini van. We have 11 bikes, combined, right now. His kids live with their mom, and I just have fur babies, so I am not getting rid of my 6. But I am giving one of mine to him–which is technically not getting rid of it. But at least I don’t have to pay the insurance and registration every year (We pay for our own vehicles). We barely get to ride as is, even with eh kids now being 12 and living with their mom). WORK! LIFE!! It all sucks! We did get to ride dirt this past weekend, but I can’t even tell you how long it has been since we’ve ridden street. I would have to look back on a blog post to know. Anyway! This is not about me, this is about you. Make some time for yourself, the both of you! Take turns. Get a sitter. Or you will go insane. Don’t give up what you love doing (even though you love the baby more), you really can do it all. 🙂

      Thanks for the words of encouragement! I did get out last Saturday for a short ride in the hills with my brother.
      I’m blessed with having retired parents to help watch the new bundle of joy if we need to get out on the road together, which hopefully we will in the spring.
