You Gotta Like It

Posted by Jim Zeiser on Monday, December 29, 2014,
Years ago a buddy of mine, Glyn, and I used to say that when things went our way unexpectedly. Today was one of those times. The last few days have been unseasonably mild but the end is near. The weather forecast says it will get colder in the coming days so my fleet will be settling in for a long winter's nap until Mother Nature loosens her grip. Yesterday I had the chance to hop on the Honda for a run into Town while the mercury hovered in the mid thirties and thought that was it. Today I w...

A Good Day

Posted by Jim Zeiser on Friday, December 26, 2014,
The weather of late has been atrocious and I only saw my two wheeled fleet when I had to enter the garage or through the windows as I walked by. Today we got to see an unaccustomed sight, sunlight. In addition to sunlight we also enjoyed warmer than usual temperatures. Even better, I had a list of items that needed purchasing from town and just the bike to do it with. Out came my 50cc mini motorcycle, Rocket, for the trip into Town.
It was glorious to be out on the road, and more enjoyable tha...

Bad News

Posted by Jim Zeiser on Friday, December 19, 2014,
This is not a two wheeled bit of news but personal. As some of you may remember my wife Sara spent most of this year in the throes of Chemotherapy.

Last week we learned that another tumor was present and Sara's tumor blood markers had risen. She bravely accepted...

I'm sitting here watching a lovely veil of white blanketing the Earth and I'm not happy about it. The present snow was supposed to be bad but it's turning out to more of a nuisance than a threat. Original estimates pegged it at eighteen inches but it looks now like it will settle in at around five or six. What it means to me is that whether I like it or not the riding season is over and the roads will be coated with ice, snow or a thick layer of salt. Not the best conditions to be riding on. ...

Salt On The Earth

Posted by Jim Zeiser on Thursday, December 4, 2014,
I had a few shopping items to pick up today and had every intention of braving the cold and riding something. As a precaution I walked to the end of the driveway to check out the road. It was white. Recently we've had some snow and freezing conditions at night so our beloved State DOT highway maintenance crews have been out making the roads safe to traverse. That means numerous plowings and spreading of road salt to clear the roads. While this has made driving safer it also means my two wheel...

My Ride


Jim Zeiser If you wish to comment my e-mail address is h1500e@hotmail.com. I'd like to hear anything-good or bad-that anyone would like to say. As they said in college, we're all lifelong learners.
