Cyclerides.com Weekly Update
12/22/10
 
Greetings Riders,
 
As I mentioned in the newsletter last week, I will be taking the next 2 weeks off from the newsletter editorial to relax, take some needed time off and get ready to start a new year. Hope to do a little bit of flyin', a little bit of ridin' and a little bit of nothin'. Kind of sounds like a country song doesn't it? In fact, here is one that I took from the air today of the new Diamondbacks Spring Training Stadium. I will post some pics from the air and the ground on Cyclerides.com Facebook as I get them. In them meantime, I will still leave you with a few nuggets from past letters.
 
The time off has been good so far as I have all of my Christmas shopping done already. For the first time in probably 30 years I won't be shutting the lights off at Costco Christmas Eve on my way out the door, trying to get one last item to round out my list. Now I can actually coast till the big day. No more check out lines or crazy drivers for me.
 
Mrs. C. and I would like to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas.
We hope you have the opportunity to relax and enjoy the time with your family and friends. After the last couple of years of economic and political turmoil, Lord knows we all need it. Christmas Blessings to all.
 
If you want to relax and take some virtual rides while you are waiting for family to show up for Christmas dinner, go to the Cyclerides.com Smugmug Photo Page for the most recent photo's and video.

Here are a few quotes that you can ponder over the weekend.
 
 
Twelve Important Things My Motorcycle Has Taught Me.
 
1.  The only good view of a thunderstorm is in your rear view mirror.
 
2.  Four wheels move the body; two wheels move the soul.
 
3.  I'd rather be riding my motorcycle and thinking about God, than sitting in church thinking about my bike.
 
4.  Life may begin at 30, but it doesn't get real interesting until about 75 mph.
 
5.  Midnight bugs taste just as bad as Noon time bugs.
 
6.  Sometimes it takes a whole tank full of gas before you can think straight.
 
7.  A bike on the road is worth two in the shed.
 
8.  Young riders pick a destination and go; old riders pick a direction and go.
 
9.  When you're riding lead, don't spit.
 
10. Catching a yellow jacket in your shirt at 75 mph can double your vocabulary.
 
11. If you can't get it going with bungee cords and duct tape, it's serious.
 
12. Only a biker knows why a dog sticks his head out of a car window.
