Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas!

It's been far too long since I've blogged - and I apologize. Sometimes the day-to-day action of teacher, family life, home repairman, guitar player, web site designer, pilates rookie, cyclist and watcher of the occasional TV show gets in the way of blogging.

I haven't scooted for the past couple of weeks because of the below zero temperatures and even snow for a couple of days. I had a small scare last year when I slid in the way to school so I've been a bit more careful this year. I've also had to drive my daughter to school at least 3 days a week so that certainly cuts into my opportunities to scoot.

I've also been way too bust so that when I have a free hour or so, there's a million other things to fill the void. Gotta change that in the new year!

I'm still toying with the possibility of getting a bigger scoot but possible travel plans next summer may stall my decision.

Happily, it's supposed to be rainy and wet for the holidays, rather than icy and cold, so I plan to get out at least a couple times over the holidays - and hope to blog as well!

So, I'm still here, still willing to blog if there's someone willing to read. Hope everyone has a great Christmas and a very happy new year!

Happily, blogging is not a job, no deadlines, no pressure. Write as much or as little as you are able. I am sure some of us have other lives and things to take care of.

Merry Christmas to you and your family too. Perhaps we will "bump" into you during the Holiday season. Be Good, or maybe it's better to "be bad"

Hey Dave - keep it up... when you get the chance. Even a little two wheeled adventure is better than none at all. ~Dan.

Dave, there's not a thing wrong with being busy. Scoot when you can. As BobSkoot said, we all have lives beyond blogging -:)

If you decided to move up to a GTS you'd be very pleased with the slightly larger tires and more power. Very stable on the highway!

Happy New Year to you and your family!

Bobskoot: I hope it's better to be good! You're right - blogging - and riding - should be enjoyable pastimes so I'm just taking her easy over the holidays.

Lumpycam - You're definitely right - I do look forward to my adventures on two wheels!

Joy - Thanks! Good to hear it!

Anonymous - What phrase?!!

Chuck - I am very tempted by the GTS - we'll see what the future holds!

Hi Dave,

I have a blog ( and I have linked to your blog.

If you feel that the link is inappropriate, I'll edit as you suggest.

Warm regards,

Het dave, it is always nice to read your blog. Keep blogging. I'm sure there is a reason for the lack of posts off late. Keep them coming. And keep riding
