I'm still not giving you a man hug, no matter how many more times you ask.

How do you snag the first piece out of the pizza box on the way home, while on the bike? Come on, I know I'm not the only one that does that...

Let's not get carried away here!

BTW, trust me on this Mark, people may not remember your name 100 years from now, but I assure you, some of the stories you've told on yourself WILL be retold many (more) thousands of times by people you've never even met, that heard them from someone on ADV. Some of them are just THAT much fun to tell.

And, that was one of the best "rants" in a long time.

Interesting topic tho, and well stated.

I feel much the same about motorcycles, by and large, and I accept the risk (as does my wife whenever she rides), but I differ from some in that I'm pretty risk averse on the street...to the point that in truth I never, ever, get that "zen" relaxation/in-the-moment shit all the moto-writers blather on about. I'm sure it's there to be had, but for me to give myself in to the experience, I'm shutting down the part of me that knows I have a daughter to raise, a job to go to, a wife to grow old with, and bills to pay. I am hyper-aware on the bike 99.9% of the time and I would be lying if I said that it didn't get in the way of fun sometimes.

Lately, I've become committed to being a safer, smarter rider. In fact, I've purposely changed the "how and why" I ride in the last couple years, so that I don't feel that drive to ride beyond my abilities, or keep up with anyone, or even to be in places where the bike exposes me to too much risk. I do more easy rides with the wife to a restaurant, slow back road days, etc. Probably stuff that would bore a lot of guys, but it's good for me and it's good for the wife.

None of that is to say I don't completely understand that some people take greater risks, because believe me I have and would do so if my life was a little different.

It's a "deal" we all make with ourselves, at some level. The nitwit pirate in his dew rag rolls the dice with his choices, so does the Oldwing guy in his denim vest and 3/4 lid, and so does Captain Safety on his RT, hi-viz Stich and flashing landing-gear lights. All share some risk, some of the same risks, it's just how you decide to live with them. I still get a lot out of motorcycles, but I don't have that itch to find the line of my own abilities anymore.

Grab a slice before you shove the pizza box in the panniers, and store it in the map compartment of your tank bag for easy access.

This only works with a modular flip-up helmet, sneaking a slice of pie in through the shield is a bitch at stoplights and makes it hard to operate the clutch lever after consumption.

Side note: Just figured out why all my maps have grease stains. Shit.

There were 12 parmesan bread bites when the bag left the store. 8 made it home. 2 before the bag hit the panniers, 2 before the bag made it from the panniers to the kitchen.

I'm only human, afterall.
