With luck, I will turn 70 later this year. I can still use a motorcycle for much of my daily transportation and ride the tight turns on Squirrel Spur or our other challenging roads. I can still cover courts and the board of supervisors for the paper and I will wander the vast areas of FloydFest later next month for photographic and video coverage.
The thermometer is already 58 degrees at 6:30 this morning and is expected to hit 65 by 2 p.m. I’m heading north towards Roanoke shortly to join members of the Roanoke Valley Harley Owners Group for breakfast and a possible ride down where the high is expected to top 70 degrees.
Live to ride and ride to live are mottos of those of us who enjoy time on two-wheels.
