Slow Start to Spring

Two weeks at her new home and less than 400 miles on the odometer.  I'm telling myself that it's due to the slow start to Spring that central Ohio is getting this year.  The lawn has been cut twice in that same time, but I've only enjoyed one day trip on the Road Glide.  Let's hope that doesn't become a habit.

The news events of the past week have been saddening: the Boston Marathon bombings and the factory explosion in West, Texas. The news of the death and capture of the suspected bombers does nothing to lift my spirits.  I'm glad they have been apprehended but I cannot celebrate their demise or capture.  My thoughts and prayers are still with the victims and their families, not for the two brothers that caused so much pain.

And then I learned that as many as 12 bodies have been found in West, Texas, presumably, those of first responders.  What a loss to the small community of West, Texas. 

I still have not decided on a name for my new lady.  I anticipate a long relationship, so choosing a name, if done at all, requires due consideration. 

Ride Safe!

Hello to a fellow Ohio blogger! I've been waiting for you to start posting again.

I am just outside Cincinnati and keep in touch with the rest of the moto bloggers around the country.

I don't ride as fast, but I ride passionately!

Congrats on your new ride!

Where are you located?
