    Many times a ride by myself is exactly what I need.

    Hatch, I feel ya. The last five years or so I've been away from the seat time I've needed. Trying to get back is hard, and watching time slip away is harder. I get to a point where I don't want swing a leg over and go. The DL has long legs, and I have short time... a classic mis match. I'm wanting to get back to a thumper so I can steal a few hours here and there in the ANF to get my head back on right.

    I'm lucky enough to get to ride through the woods after work everyday when my body allows it. Yesterday i realized i was just flying through, not appreciating it for what it was. Gotta stop and take it all in like hatch said from time to time. The woods are the best therapy there is. Hanging out with a bunch of like minded wankers with dirt bikes mixed in is unbeatable. Already counting down the days until the next trot and polar bear.

    Yessir, after a long day of dealing with deadlines and needy people, a nice quiet sunset inspection restores balance. Yin to the yang, and all that jazz...

    This is what I'm talkin about, right here

    Y'all are right, a good ride out in the woods chases the black dog away. I hate stickers (:D), but I might put this one on my bike:

    I usually stop because I crash, then smell to make sure I didn't shit myself... after that I smell the forest while the throbbing in my head stops:thumb

    Damn. I don't know much about you but I feel safe in saying that sweet companion had a life to be proud about sharing with all her other 4-legged friends.

    Rest In Peace, indeed.

    Sorry to hear this--I didn't realize she was going on 14 years old, I remember when she was a puppy and it just didn't seem like that long ago. Time goes by mighty fast these days.

    An old man misses many dogs, and now you'll miss one more. They leave their paw prints all over our hearts. Rest in Peace, Molly.
