Thoughts about motorcycles, tools that work (or don't), travel, and occasionally politics. Places I've gone, routes that were special, and food I've found along the way.
And, thankfully, not too much of any of it.

Something more to contemplate
A while ago I offered a couple of quotes to think about. I started writing a post to discuss my thoughts but was quickly overwhelmed by where it took me. It still sits in my Drafts folder as a struggle to bring it into focus. In the meantime I came across this quote in an article by James Clear. It extends my thinking on this subject; that we seem in such a rush to get nowhere.
is weary of living in the country and moves to the city; one is weary
of one’s native land and goes abroad; one is weary of Europe and goes to
America, etc.; one indulges in the fanatical hope of an endless journey
from star to star…
One is weary of eating on porcelain and eats on silver; wearying of that, one eats on gold.” —Soren Kierkegaard
