The bike is out.

Image may contain: outdoor

I was planning on selling my motorcycle this year but I suddenly changed my mind this weekend. The nice weather and seeing everybody else out on their bikes convinced me that I needed to get on it soon. So today I registered it and then got it out of storage. As I rode it home I remembered exactly why it is that I need to ride every year when the weather turns favorable. I got home and felt goosebumps—okay, part of that might have been because it’s still a little chilly but it mostly had to do with the excitement of getting the bike home and looking forward to the rest of the season.

I wasn’t going to give up riding for good. Initially, I wasn’t planning on giving up riding for the season. The whole point behind selling the bike was to help pay off my credit card bill. If anything, the bill payments taught me that I could be paying off a new bike instead. That might have worked if I didn’t have that last root canal. But what I could get for the bike at this point—considering its age and the stuff I’ve done to it—I wouldn’t even be able to cover half of the credit card bill. So I would still have that bill and no motorcycle.

I can come up with better ways to pay off the bike, such as a summer job. I don’t really want to, but the option is there. I could also just accept the fact that it’s going to take a while to pay off of this bill. Maybe I could look at it as a symbol of continuity in my life. Unfortunately, the part of me that likes to get things done and out of the way keeps getting in the way of that.

I will publish the next book review tomorrow.
