take a breather...

So I have been out of the scene for a couple of months now.  Other than some service and bolt on crap for a few friends I haven't been doing anything with bikes.  Weird thing is I sorta like it, and the time off  has reminded me why I started in the first place.   I have been busy with my new baby girl and have only ridden a few miles so far.  I threw some new tires on the Buell and been riding it as is, oil leaks and all, and I don't care!!  It's about riding and getting away for all the stress and bullshit of the daily grind.  I forgot how nice it is to take off and RIDE!!  with no where to go, nothing to do, no one to meet, and just clear your head.   I have my priorities and my family is number 1, and that means my bikes have to wait.  I have spent most of the winter remodeling my house to get ready for the baby.  I realized I just like to build things, and don't have to be bikes.  I truly enjoyed working on the house and making it "my" way.  Turns out that I'm not half bad at being a carpenter.  

So when the stars align, the money tree buds, and when i feel like it, I will finish the bikes.  Everything is out in the shop to finish them, I even have the gaskets to fix the oil leaks on the Buell.  For now I will spend my free time riding, and remind myself what is important...
