AAAAhhhhhhh....the first time you can get out the bikes in your mesh jacket is so liberating! We didn't have to bundle up with thermals, sweaters, gators, solid jackets, and the whatnot. The freedom of not feeling like StayPuft the Marshmallow man. No worries about getting chilled out and making sure you have extra layers. Just basking in the spare room in the gear. And this is our 3 weeks of spring where the temps are perfect, the humidity is non-existent, and the pollen is low. Trifecta!
It averaged about 80 degrees (F) and we headed to Juliette, GA. This was only the 3rd visit this year. We hadn't been there in years, the food wasn't terribly thrilling. But they either changed owners, got a new cook, or both, because the food is spectacular!! So yes, that is becoming one of my favorite destinations for an RTE and there are so many nice routes to boot. Last month our trip home saw us spending a couple miles on dirt roads (as I finally found the Enduro setting on the GS that loosens the throttle response).
We sat on the porch for a few minutes after eating. Just letting everything settle and freeing up the table for another in the line on the 45 minute wait list. Saw the bike my brother drools over.
Can this be believed?? We are actually letting go of some horses and clearing a space in the barn? Unheard of!! We've finally made the decision to release the pent up horses in the Honda XL600R and send it to a new and better home where it will get more attention.
I couldn't kick start the darn thing and hadn't yet gotten used to the height. So peace be with her and hope that she gets more love and road time.
