This has been a really unusual winter for us here in Arizona, a lot of cold, windy or rainy days. It’s been wave after wave of storm systems coming off the Pacific and sweeping in from California.
I had a window of opportunity yesterday to get out for a while, so I jumped on it.
I was riding through some twisties yesterday and I had my bike heeled over in this sweeping curve just like this
Okay maybe in my mind
, anyways I was surprised mid turn when suddenly SCREECH!!
My left floorboard touched down. It startled the crap outa me! Fortunately there is a little screw in sacrificial stud on the bottom of the floorboard that is designed to touch first, sorta as a warning. The floorboards are also hinged and spring loaded so they give. Ah well, it’s hard to think of yourself as Ricky Racer when you‘re out there floating around on a cruiser.
But it was still a thrill.
I‘ve still got it! ……if only in my mind.
