For those that aren’t familiar with New Mexico, the yellow & red represent the NM state flag. The skull is one of the biker skull representations. I’m told that it’s stands for our awareness of our own mortality, shows no race, shows no status, shows no religion, and tells us that we are all the same under the skin.
It’s been a while since I posted here, but I’ve been riding and will continue to ride. In the course of my absence, I took a 7 day course on teaching people to ride motorcycles offered by the Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) and will be teaching people to ride for Santa Fe Harley Davidson. I’ve already taught one class.
I’ve also driven out to Holland Michigan for a week to visit Mom. She’s doing well, in case you’re interested. We’re a family that’s blessed with good health and longevity. On the return trip, I stopped and visited friends in the Chicago ‘burbs. While it was great seeing Mom, I had a wonderful visit with old friends and we broke bread at Home Run Inn Pizza in Naperville. About a dozen of us spent 2 hours annoying other diners with our boisterous antics and lies. I miss those people!
Riding does happen, almost daily actually. My Harley has become my primary vehicle this year. There are weeks where my Grand Cherokee never sees any milage. It’s been a great riding year so far, except for the 2 month where I was down with a broken arm.
Anyway, big plans for next year’s riding, but you’ll have to wait to hear about them.
