September sucks.

diditsnow So its getting colder out and that absolutley blows when you want to go for a ride.

Yesterday I had my first experience with cold weather riding. It was only 15 degrees out. Ya thats right farenheit sucks. It was also raining and I only had mesh gloves on. Luckily my BMW 650gs has heathd grips which prevented me from going completly numb. My neck was still cold and I was shivering like a wimp while riding at 100kph. Hopefully the weather can hold on for a while because I really want to ride throughout October and possibly November.

Maybe I should invest in some warmer gear. Does anyone have any suggestions on what to get? Maybe a scarf or nice mittens. Definetly gotta get something on my legs.

Oh well. I just want ride as much as possible.

The other day when I was out and about I was just minding my own business at a red light when it happened. The electrical system on my bike completly died! I was so pissed off! The only thing I could think was f*** f*** f***! For some reason I was not being all that logical so I just stood at the side of the road worrying. Because I have a BMW, I have a nice warranty and roadside assistance, but none of that really matters because I didn’t have a cell phone on me.

After about 10 minutes, someone on a harley came by and asked if I was ok. I shook my head “no” so he stopped and asked me what was wrong. About this time some one else on a harley stopped and offered his assistance. I told them the electrical system was dead and they asked where the battery was. I got to the battery and just had the reconnect the cable and she was running again.They made it look too easy.

It was so nice of two people on Harleys to stop for a douche like me on a German bike. I know I am such a rookie but that how I learn. And I will never be making that mistake ever again. But I will be making other ones, hopefully I can get through those.

I didn’t get their names but to whoever you are I would like to thank you both for your assistance.

Peace Justin.
