Look Ma, No Thumbs.

I have now gone out for several rides with my nice friend who is kind enough to act as my pretend riding coach. I can now handle turns and have managed to get up to speed on the roads. I have also gotten pulled over, locked the back tire and slid all over the place, and dropped the bike on the ground. We won’t count the original running out of gas and battery jump, since someone told me “tank’s full!” right when I drove off for my very first try. Just working through all the steps one at a time. I was going to try the freeway, but I think I’ll need to figure out how to go faster before I attempt high speed merging.

I got a nice little jacket too, but still need better gloves. I rode for a bit in the evening and couldn’t feel my thumbs when I stopped. Oops.

I like deerskin work gloves for summer; padded motorcycling gloves were too hot for many of the days I remember riding in the bay area. These are very similar to the gloves I have.

My hands are always cold. I have nice thin warm weather gloves. I need some radio active gloves for night and windy days.
