My New Year's resolution is to work less and restore balance to my life. So when I felt the urge to go into the office today, I fought it. There must be a special circle in Hell for people who break their resolutions on the first day of the year. (Checking Dante's "Inferno"...)
Few activities please me more than riding a motorcycle. It's inherently fun. Especially on a fast bike like my Yamaha FZ-1. This motorcycle is a thrill machine. Super-fast, accelerates like a bullet, and handles like a racing bike.
So when expected snow didn't arrive, I knew what my first choice for fun was. I took the Yamaha out for a spirited ride. Stretched both its and my legs. It's good to ride in Winter; the bracing cold wind reminds you of nature's powerful force.
What did you do on the first day of the year?
