|The gloves I have now are just not working for me.|
Random thought # 2: I've been giving some thought to upgrading my phone. I am due for an upgrade and my company has a program in place where I can actually get a "Smart phone" for free. While I don't really NEED a new phone the idea of having some apps for GPS and Crash Detection appeal to me. Considering how my Burgie is now my main ride. A cheap Bluetooth device might even allow me access to music and make phone calls while riding the bike, although I don't feel like that's a good idea at this stage in my riding career. So my question to you gentle reader is do you use your Smart Phone in a similar manner? Does it make sense to do so. What type of mount do you use for it?
Proficient Motorcycling the other day. So far I've only read about 70 pages of it and already learned one or two things. For me at least owning any sort of two wheeled transport is about "smoothness." I'm not out to beat land speed records, or jump over buses. I want to learn how to ride safely and effortlessly. I'm not sure if this book would help, and after only 70 pages I can't review it. Maybe later.
Finally, I'm approaching 20K on my bike and will need to change out my drive belt soon. My lack of mechanical skills is really starting to bother me, so much so that I see little ads on the sides of various sites I read to "learn how to be a motorcycle mechanic" I am very tempted to call them and learn more. I have always been more of a theory guy than an actually nuts and bolts guy. Now if I could only find a mentor around here that is willing to teach me how to do even the simplest of fixes I would be happy.
Finally - part two: My Green Swamp ride is still planned. I just need some time to do it. Soon my friends. Soon.
