    Copied from another post, couldn't have said it any better!!

    Dear loved ones,
    I want you to know I’m sorry, I truly am! I’m sorry for making you worry every time I climb onto my bike, for I know you worry this could be my last ride. I want you to know that if that is the case, I’m sorry I left on such short notice. Please know that it was never my intention. You sometimes ask "why would you risk your life just for a ride?" To most people, no answer will be good enough. Others say things like, "he's careless, you don't care about me, you're selfish or you only want to go fast!"
    For the rest of you that are undecided, please take a minute to read on!
    For those that ride, "a ride" is our freedom away from a world turning evil. A small " A “ride" could have helped you stay another day at a job. A “ride" could have saved an argument, or kept a husband from saying something he regrets, or a wife from burning the house down ‍♀️. A veteran from doing something that cannot be un-done. To think. To decompress. To “air-it-out”.
    A “ride" could be the only time a mom, dad, wife, husband, grandma, grandpa, girlfriend, boyfriend, sister, brother, aunt, uncle, friend, daughter or brother has during the day to catch his or her breath, to re-energize, to pray for strength to continue on with all the "responsibilities" and other "expectations" in a day!
    Last but not least. I love it and everything about it! I love the long, open roads and beautiful views! I love the excitement I feel every time I twist the throttle. I love the gas station conversations. I love the out of the blue races. I love the family that's within the biker community. I love the random head nods, ape hanging and ground pounding with a breeze on my face. I just love the ride!
    I will finish by saying THANK YOU and I love you! Thank you, for supporting me even though you're not comfortable with my choice of this "ride". Thank you, for the countless prayers. Thank you for every phone call made to make sure the "biker down" wasn't me. Thank you for showing your love even when it's difficult.
    Sincerely,
    Me
    Borrowed from a Brother.

    ^^^^^ If Cali’s depopulation is real, maybe a condemned outhouse without electric, water and is located in a flood prone, earthquake zone will be less than $500 k......doubtful, but they say that’s where dreams come true....in the crapper not in Cali

    My Dad did something similar. At stop lights every so often people who are in a hurry to get to the next one would "BEEP" their horn. My Dad would get out, go to the front of the car - stare at it for a bit- go to the left side and do the same- go back around the front again and bend down like he was looking underneath- then down the right side and do the same- (always keeping an eye on the traffic light) - get to the back and do a much more thorough look-see. Then walking back to the person that beeped, with a confused look on his face, (by now the light was red again) --- and ask a question of the offender-- "Thanks for the BEEP but I do not see anything wrong, What did you see?

    The only thing I disagree with is: Other vehicles are to me NOT BOXES - as many good things can come in a box. But are instead "cages" that is why my license plate says - NO CAGE! Other than that nice job.

    Do ya all know that a helmet on the road behind your bike indicates you need help. In a cage they used to tie something white to the radio antenna. But cages - no got antennas anymore.
