    Back in the saddle again!


    Rode the last few days from home in NH, to Kansas City, MO, for the next job.
    My wonderful wife has kindly loaned me her '95 M900 to ride, until I get a new bike.
    I was a bit apprehensive, since I hadn't ridden a bike in 7 months, since the crash that claimed my own bike.
    That's the longest I'd gone without riding in 30 years.
    The first day, about 400 miles to Rochester, NY, was tough. My saddle was saddlesore; my back and neck and wrists and so on all ached ...
    I stayed an extra day there, as I was having a good visit, and to ready myself for the long rides ahead.
    But my body remembered, and set itself back to shape for riding.
    The next day, I felt good all day, got about 600 miles, all the way to Indianapolis.
    Then 500 miles the next day, to Kansas City.

    It feels really good to be back on a bike.

    Interesting you put this up...motus put up a social media thing with a mass plate that I would’ve sworn up and down was yours.
    Motus HQ on Instagram: “Love this one. @robsdyno #newengland #massachusetts #mstr #madeFORamerica”

    Aye, but alas, you live on the other side too.

    A Motus MST is on my short list, and I might well get one, but I have not done so yet.

    lol. I'm only so late getting started because I've been out of town, and without my own bike.
    Normally, at this point, I'd have had my bike out for two months and have about 2500 miles on it for the season so far.

    The ice has all melted, people!
    Get those things out and ride!
