After my bold prediction that I'd be back in the saddle again I couldn't bring myself to do it. It's been hard staying of the bikes and scooter but I've tried to be good to let my bones heal. Also the cold weather here has made me a coward. Riding with nothing but a freezer bag ensures a chilly ride home at night from work and I just can't bring myself to do it. I also have some sad news. I divested myself of the Honda Big Ruckus. Apparently the State of New York won't title it or renew the registration next year so I can't use it. I gave it to my local garage who will use it as a yard bike to get around on. All the parts to fix it have been secured and it could be running in no time. Maybe I'll have better luck with the Yamaha.
