Though many things can interfere with dreams, like my shoulder injury, there is still a way to find the brightness in the dark. Major brightness occurred for me in the form of a legitimate motorcycle jacket and new gloves. This opens the doors for all sorts of new journeys.
The new jacket is stiff enough with kevlar and gore tex that it can stand up on its own. My range had been limited prior to this purchase because my parents worried for my health on the open road without a motorcycle jacket. The jacket not only protects me but gives me the look of Bane from the Dark Knight Rises. With the amount of kevlar built into the jacket I’m surprised that it wasn’t marketed as a bullet proof vest.
The next addition to my motorcycle arsenal is my pair of street and dirt gloves. The dirt gloves will be such an awesome addition because when dirt biking my hands have become shredded over time on my knuckles. The street gloves are even better. They fit tight and have added grip on the palm for ample control. They also have a large X on the back of the hand. They are red, white, and blue so they truly showcase my patriotism.
The next awesome development was not bought by money. I left my BMW f650 in the hands of my most trusted mechanically inclined friend Wells Coalfleet, who was able to make important developments. With his tinkering the bike ran for around an hour without any problems. This helps relive my prior heartbreak. As soon as my shoulder is fully mended, which should be just a matter of weeks, I’ll finally be able to steal the motorcycle back and return to riding. Hopefully with the spring weather in the air and the sun in the sky.
