    Ridin' the Full Moon

    This is something I wrote back in late 99 after acquiring my '73 R60/5, about a ride I took early one morning along the Blue Ridge parkway in VA when the Full moon was still hanging in the sky. Having been out of the saddle for 12 long years, I spent almost every weekend riding, besides my normal commute. Only put a 1000 miles in my truck that year, man it felt good to be back riding!

    Never will I be bikeless again.

    Still consider it one of my better efforts.

    BRP morning ride

    There is something about riding in the still of the early morning hours seeing the moon fade away as the sun begins to light the day that always stirs my soul and rejuvenates my mind. I think it is called stress relief. As rocketman says, it's man, machine, and memories. Thanx for the report. Ironhorsecowboy

    I think you put your finger on it pretty squarely, IHCB. There's something about being on the road when the sky turns that purple color in the morning. You just know you've got a long way to go before it gets dark again and you've already accomplished quite a bit.
