Lunch for breakfast at an airport.
I thought my days of stacked iPads getting ready for an event were over. At least I do it from a comfy poolside setup these days. (-:
Recently I’ve been blessed to spend a lot of times with Marines. The owners of these rifles were amazing young men and I was fortunate to spend the better part of a week with them.
Recently, while traveling in a lockdown state, we visited a non-chain, family owned, Italian restaurant that was open for business as usual. We sat inside, maskless, with attentive waiters, fine wine, and great fresh made in house pasta, and a veal recommended by the owner and his son.
This must have been what it was like, sort of, to visit a speakeasy back during prohibition. The food was great. The service great. But was my perception tilted by what we were really doing? Living life, as it should be, ignoring ridiculous edicts from politicians and bureaucrats? Probably so. And I’d do it again – I hope very soon.
The Royal Enfield Intercepter 650 is the most popular new bike in the UK right now. It’s a “retro” bike – looking like Royal Enfield offerings of the 60/70s, but with modern features like ABS and fuel-injection.
I now own one. (-: The photograph above is from its maiden ride.
I sold my Africa Twin, mainly because it was big and I wasn’t gonna do long tours. I then bought this for $4500. And it’s fun. I love zipping around on it. It’s lighter. Shorter. Easier. I notice that people walk around and look at it when it’s parked.
Is it the bike the Africa Twin was? Heck no. It’s just fine though. In my “perfect” world I’d probably tweak the front suspension a bit, it’s harsh on pot holes. But other than that, very nice.
