I know longer have a fear of twisty's, in fact I seek them out now. Where I rarely ever passed anyone on my previous Zuma 125, I do so with joy now. I still feel a little weird at night when a car is speeding behind me, but I know longer feel a compulsion to pull over and let him pass. Nor do I hug the right lane anymore, I feel confident in all lanes. I do remind myself that the second leading cause of accidents however is "confidence."
At work, my heavy motorcycle jacket no longer gets odd looks when I come in and the fact that I ride in nearly every day has forced the three Harley Owners and a Shadow owner to join me, least they be teased that the "Scooter Guy" is more of a biker than they are. Today I plan on taking the bike to Keel and Curley Winery for there Blueberry festival. Sadly I will not have any pictures since my camera died, but I do promise to return with a nice Chardonnay or perhaps a sweet blackberry wine.
