Hi, I'm quite busy these days. I've got numerous things to accomplish. But, I'm still feeling good. Like what others have said " Keep your head above water" That's why, I'm doing everything positively. Looking forward to an awesome weekend. Great day to all!

I find that motorcycle season is very pleasant if I get in the habit of riding, and unpleasant if I don't. It's a busy and stressful time of year at work, and regular riding lifts my spirits, helps me sleep, and generally make me better adjusted.

To get myself a winter equivalent, I have actually sat down and designed a simple motorcycle simulator, but it's a huge amount of work to actually build the thing so I haven't done it yet.

Every bike is a good bike. The question is whether or not it's the best bike for what you want to do.

I hope I'm not going to upset anyone by writing this but for me life's pretty good at the moment. This week I reopened my bicycle repair shop after the Christmas break and business has got straight back to a healthy level. I've got to the point in my life where I've lost the lust for ever more expensive vehicles and bicycles that for a good many years had me living at the limit of my means and am now able to start putting things in place to enable me to retire eventually. Fixing bikes all day is hard work and I really don't fancy spending 40-50 hours a week doing it when I'm 70.

Only minor grumbles are that now I'm past 50 I can feel my fitness falling off and cycling hills is definitely harder than it used to be. No amount of training now will get me back to where I was at my peak so I have to stop looking at performance measures and just enjoy the rides.
It'd be nice to have a little more time to ride my CBR.

I'm having riding withdrawal due to arctic-like winter temperatures, but I'm doing well otherwise. Mrs. Stichill and I are empty nesters now and we're making plans for vacations and maybe building a new garage dedicated to...motorcycles!

just had a nice ride home from yoga..
nice combination of health giving
and enjoyable activities..

exercise and rational movement sequences
are vitally important for general welbeing..
ie, use not abuse of all body systems,
including nervous system and brain..

and thus our normal brain secretions
such as serotonin and dopamine etc..

very important especially for
inevitable aging..

Same, an exciting project finally being actioned. I crushed two fingers at work today so crap day and typing with left hand while right is in ice water. Going to be a long night..

I was blessed with stable mental health until 8 years ago (triggered by relationship melt down) and now I'm a bit flaky but not to the point of requiring medication. Struggle with it most days.
Two things that work for me tho, other than motorcycling of course:
Getting good regular sleep and exercising. I know it seems obvious and we've all heard it before but I find it really helps.

The riding weather was fine today. Just cool enough so that I wasn't too warm in the Darien jacket that I bought myself for Christmas.
