A Bat Outa Hell

The only riding I got to do today was to the local shop to fix the leaky fork I blogged about yesterday. You know what a biker does when his bike is in the shop? Yard work! Well at least I mowed the lawn, whacked the weeds and took down the inflatable pool. That helped keep my mind off the expense of replacing a car tire last weekend and now this repair.

I told Diana to give me a half hour head start before heading down to pick me up at 301 Cycle in Middletown, DE. I got caught up in something the next neighborhood over and Diana ended up getting a little ahead of me… but not for long! She was on Rt 896 when I buzzed by her. Now keep in mind my princess drives a Mustang GT with a V8 and a lead foot. The only thing I usually do faster than her is eat!

So here is a deep biker question: when I ride by myself I ride like a bat outa hell. Not all the time but definitely a lot more agressive than when I ride with others. When I lead Diana or a group of riders I ride like a granny. I’m super conservative when leading one or more people. Anyone wanna take a crack at explaing what you think is the difference? It’s like I’m a whole nother person!
