Here’s the conundrum…my wife is two weeks from her due date, and I was on call this weekend with my regular job, BUT, it was also one of the best days this summer had produced. Mid 70’s, bright blue sky, and Rage KaGe ready to put some miles on. What’s a boy to do. Compromise, that’s what you do.
Man there seems to be a lot of anxieties these days. We are in the middle of a pandemic, which has now caused an economic disaster, which has lead to record high unemployment, which means people can’t buy food or pay their bills and mortgage, and so on. Parents are trying to figure out if there child is going to school or not, and how do they continue to juggle all of that. Just thinking about everything the world is facing right now seems overwhelming.
Have you ever experienced true peace? Sometimes you only feel it for a minute, sometimes longer. No matter how long it is, it is one of the best feelings in the world. A lot of times I do not experience true peace. Don’t get me wrong though, I experience happiness and a lot of different emotions, but very rarely true peace.
Before I had even ridden a motorcycle, I knew that I liked them. I liked how they looked, I liked how they sounded, and I liked the idea of them. I read about motorcycles, and I talked to people about them…I had a pretty good understanding of everything pertaining to the entire motorcycle industry.
My first motorcycle was a beast. It was loud, it was fast, and it was a hack job. I think I fixed it more than I rode it. The speedometer didn’t work, the brake light didn’t work, not to mention you had to take half the bike apart to reach the battery and other vital components of a motorcycle.
Freedom. Land of the free. Free from persecution, free from fear, freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom from sin. Freedom isn’t free. Freedom machine!
One thing you might not know about me (even my closest friends) is that I overthink almost everything. I’m certainly not a Type A personality or a perfectionist either, but I do go over things constantly in my mind. Even with small decisions I tend to think about for probably too long. Even this blog post took me a while to write, because I was writing it in my head over and over, and each time I found problems with it. So I finally just told myself to write, and that brings us to this point now.
