Afternoon on Spook

Post by tom84std » Sat Sep 01, 2012 10:50 pm

Not a big deal to most of you guys, but I got mangled on the expressway last April and I've had an equilibrium problem, falling down a lot. Afraid to ride. Planning a 900 mile ride this coming Tuesday, followed by several hundred more with my best friend in Colorado. Sleeping on the ground and cooking on a campfire. Two old men on two antique machines in the mountains. I wanted to prove to myself that I'm over the vertigo so I unloaded Spook and warmed her up...

I chose roads in neighborhoods with a lot of stops and twisting. Felt good, like I'd never had the crash. I truly believe the vertigo is gone. I feel strong and good. Tuesday is a go as far as I'm concerned.

Damn, I need to mow my yard!

Great! Keep yourself hydrated and get good rest - that should go a long way towards keeping you upright and having a great time!
