I work second shift, my job can be 24/7 and on top of that I have another job that I work two days a week and takes anywhere from three to eight hours to complete. In other words, I work a lot. Since my girlfriend is unable to work, we spend our mornings together. Riding 2-up with her is just not possible right now. She feels that I need a more experience before she climbs on the back of the bike with me. I know she is right.
All this limits the time I get for recreational riding and frankly since the untimely death of Gary B - I've no one to ride with. That may change in the future but for now I'm a solo rider. Riding with a friend is safer and in my opinion a hell of a lot more fun. Not that solo riding isn't fun. I've found a little 3 mile long stretch of road near where I work that has 15...yes, 15...wonderful twists, turns and bends. Everything from sharp abrupt corners to a few sweeping rights and lefts. If I get to work early enough I can be found riding that road.
One of the joys about about getting lost, I had originally planned on a 50 mile ride following a predetermined route, is finding the unexpected. Even though I live in West Central Florida I just happen to live in Kumquat country. A nearby town even has a kumquat festival. I found the packing plant and a Kumquat specialty shop. Sadly none of my pictures really came out well.

But I digress.
I've only had the Burgi for a few months and am enjoying the ride a hell of a lot more than I would have ever of guessed. When I first considered getting a bike it was for commuting purposes only, now here I am taking 100 mile joy rides.
