    I am not in the best shape of my life right now, though certainly not in the worst. Last year in an attempt to find new things to do for exercise, i took up bike riding again, and I realized how much I missed it. Something that brought back that childlike exuberance I thought I...

    Determined Destination

    but I do not like getting flats

    so I mitigate that risk by using heavy duty tubes and puncture resistant tires it is a 21 speed mountain bike though I ride on the road more than the trials and sometimes for miles I hope to upgrade it to electric assist by spring or early summer though the kits for that are...

    It's the most freeing thing ever.

    I always feel good and pumped up when I ride my bike. It's definitely good for my health. I also like how it gives me a sense of control on where I'm going, how I'm going there, and how long I can stay there as opposed to commuting. Everybody should just burn their cars and...

    I have a mountain bike too.

    and I love going out on trails with it rideing all through the woods. I know some will say I shouldn't do this but I think it's fun when I ride right after a good rain. and the mud will fly everywhere from the tires. and by time I get back home I will have mud all over me. but...

    Biking Is the Best

    I started biking around a year ago, and I still bike of course. I really do love it, it's a great experience, riding a long the neighborhood, looking at people's different houses, the challenges going up steep hills, and how it relieves stress immensely.  The best thing...

    I ride every morning,

    when it is quiet and I am alone. I get a lot of good writing ideas this way.

    My Bike

    I love my bike. I have a cheap cruiser bike from Walmart it is by no means impressive, but it is a big inspiration for me. It is my sense of accomplishment, my stress relief, and most importantly my inspiration behind throwing out those cigars.

    I have a Kawasaki Ninja 300.

    I use it increasingly not just to get me to work across the city, but also to provide me some leisure fun too! I have learnt to pull wheelies, and I can do donuts. I have even had a pillion rider behind me, and yes, I wear leathers but I've also worn just a dress when I rode...

    I Should Do That More Often

    So I've been on this bike for an hour..... I thought about sex the whole time. And I never think about sex while working out... Not to mention, the nookie has been 'out of commission' for a while now.... it's a nice change of pace :)
