Keeping your head in the game

I promised myself I'd blog mostly moto related stuff and nothing else. Hence the big gap. I did have some cool motorcycle related stuff worth blogging from early last year but frankly, I just didn't feel like typing it up. Really, I didn't feel like doing much at all.

If you're like me, you spend a lot of time thinking about your bikes, upgrades, repairs, tires...oh yeah, all manner of things to keep them working exactly the way you want them to. Again, if you're like me, you also do some basic things to keep your body humming along. I have often joked that I go to the gym simply to avoid buying new leathers.
Unfortunately, it's harder to predict the performance of the human machine. A few years ago, I had some fun with my thyroid and while the idea of having a rare cancer was pretty scary at the time, the promise at the end of the whole thing was a normal life with the caveat of needing a pill every day.

Yeah, about that.....

Like I said, it's harder to predict the performance of the human machine than a mechanical one. Who knew how much of an effect little variations of one chemical could have on your overall well being.
There is, however, good news. EVENTUALLY, there is a point at which they finally find the right amount of stuff to pop every morning to feel mostly normal again. Ok, so it took two years of roller coaster good times to get there but I think we're close. And, it's nearly spring here in the north east....heck yeah!

Soooooo, I think I will take the next couple of posts to highlight some of the good stuff from last year with the expectation that I will have lots more two wheeled fun to talk about for 2011.

Here's a teaser

What sort of person takes a freebie, barn find CT70 Mini Trail, rebuilds it in 5 weeks or so, adds a 150cc engine and then ships it to LA for a trip to San Francisco? Oh, the chubby SOB in the silver helmet there is likely to do anything when he's feeling good :D
