If I lived to ride, I would be so antsy, right about now.

I’m up here in the northeastern USA, waiting for yet another big storm to roll on through.

We’ve been getting absolutely socked with snow, which means there are a lot of plows on the roads… and not many motorcycles.

I’m a pretty inveterate “cager”, making the rounds in life in my little commuter car, but I can well imagine what it must be like to be sidelined during the winter months, while white stuff fills the roads and makes riding impossible.

I do get antsy, myself, during the spring, summer and fall, as I’m an avid snowshoer. But obviously, it’s not the same. Snowshoes… motorcycle… yah, not much comparison there.

Still, I can imagine how many folks are watching their calendars, just waiting for spring, so they can ride again.


So many #motorcycles, so little time

I’ve been finding some awesome video footage of motorcycles in Paris — and beyond — in France. Huge gatherings of bikers who gather and go for a ride. Individuals hopping on the backs of moto taxis and riding through Paris. On beautiful days under a blue sky. Or on bright days under a cloudy sky.

Either way, I’d much rather be doing that, than shoveling snow.

But here I sit… recovering after the second big storm in a week.

So it goes. It is winter, after all.

Well, at least I have YouTube.
