Happy Thanksgiving

Posted by Jim Zeiser on Wednesday, November 26, 2014,
The weather report this morning was for significant snow and the Doppler radar picture was equally as bleak yet nothing had fallen. I thought to myself, "The temperature is at thirty-one, a little cold but nothing is coming down and I need groceries. Do I dare?" I dared.
I put on my winter coat, pulled the zipper all the way to the top sealing my neck and strode out the back door. My faithful 50cc bike, Rocket, was gassed and ready to go and off we went. There were two things I should have re...

I've been cleared to ride by a Higher Authority so I'm back on the road. No, not by the doctors. Sara has let me loose after many of the tasks I've had to do showed I was up for it. This morning, for example, I took the 150cc scooter to Bainbridge to attend the funeral service of the husband of a good friend. It's been a long time since I last ventured over in that direction but it was a good ride given the occasion. I took a few roads I've never ridden on before and the trip was quite intere...
