It's Moto-Monday! Welcome.
|Warming up to head out to work.|
|The sun was gracious enough to let us shine with her.|
I’m not as flexible and enduring as I used to be. I’m in my late 40’s now and it definitely feels different to do all of the things that used to be so easy in my 20’s and 30’s. (Meaning: Squatting for two and a half hours to clean and polish really hurts for the next few days. My hands feel like big, swollen baseball mitts. I got wax where? And heat rash?! Are you kidding?! I was only out sweating in 80 degree weather for a couple of hours casually polishing. What the heck?!)
|She's still a beauty, even at 14+ years old!|
I don’t want to get old either, I’d rather gracefully become a classic. Dreams don’t die. Sometimes they just change with morning’s light. Just like my bike, some dreams need a dust off and a polish up. I’m using flexibility of mind. That’s why I’m back to flexing my writing muscles. My dreams are still out there and as long as I keep working and polishing, I’ll still be able to see myself getting there. Having a dream may also help me avert any “crisis” and heaven willing, I’d still like that really fast car! :D
|Shiny enough to even make me look good!|
Now, for something somewhat completely different, but still right on topic: I came across a link to someone working hard and polishing up his dream. He has invited others to share in his dream and enjoy being a part of it. Although I plan to talk about motorcycles in movies, in the near future, this project only has 10-days to go. It’s a film they want to make called “A Line in the Salt”.
For any of you that know about or have been out to the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah for land speed trials, this is it. A garage bike guy that is heading out to Bonneville this year to live the dream he’s been working on. It’s an Indegogo project (just like a Kickstarter project) to show and share this adventure. Any hardcore motorcycle person will be interested. It’s a motorcycle adventure after all. Take a look at the project and see what you think. Currently he’s only a third of the way to his goal. I think it’s a worth project and a way to polish your own dreams back up on the way. If you don’t/can’t participate in the project at this time, I’m sure they love for you to share the word so that it can all work out. Good karma, especially on a motorcycle is always a good thing. Now, go check it out! And have a great riding and polishing week.
