Back in the day I was riding a black FZR 1000. In 2007 I switched to a FJR to better ride with my wife. Over the years folks stopped riding or moved away. I was mostly riding to commute. About a year ago I sold the bike with only 40k miles on it. I just wasn’t riding it anymore. A big reason is that I started working from home, and with no big rides to plan for the summers. I was finding it hard and harder to get out. My skills were waning and I found to be irresponsible of me to ride with two kids and wonderful wife at home.
I still have all my gear in the off chance that I might find myself in a position to ride again.
I do still believe that life is meant to be on two wheels, and have picked up Mt Biking again.
