I finally got another bike! As you can see from the pic, it looks very similar to my old one. In truth, it is the same year/make/model minus about 6,000 miles. It came with custom rims and a custom muffler. Apple guy found it online at a dealer in Santa Rosa. [1]A good hour and half north of the city.  I might keep the rims as I like the color but the muffler is a huge annoyance. It makes the bike super loud and I hate that. I know for some that’s a bonus but not me. My ego [2]and other parts are big enough, I don’t need something super loud and annoying to announce my presence to the world. lol

I’ve missed riding so much and am sooo happy to have a bike again! Getting around in SF isn’t much of a problem but I’ve missed being able to just hop on my bike and go for a ride. I’m been using co-workers for rides back and forth to work, Zip cars for errands, and MUNI for everything else. I don’t mind public transit, especially the underground tunnel, but you have to add 30/40 minutes to everything  you wanna do.

This coming Sunday will be 4 months to the day since the accident. To say I’m rusty is an understatement. lol I had to drive the bike home from Santa Rosa, which went fine but it was all freeway. I’m planning a short leisurely group ride this Sunday to help get me back into the sway of things. (Pardon the pun. lol)

  1. Good to see you've got another bike! I heard something interesting the other day about law enforcement and motorcycles here in RI. Apparently most cops won't pull over a cruiser but they will pull over a crotch rocket.

    If I could ever convince Keyron that I won't crack it up, I'd love a Harley or a Honda.

  2. Congrats on the new ride! It's finally warm enough for us to ride in the DC area, so I don't have to envy you too much.

    Ride safe!

  3. Congrats on the new bike Moby! I know you've been missing riding a HELL of a lot these last few months!
