After actually hitting a couple of things on my bucket list and adding quite a few patches to my vest, I realized I hadn’t updated the Rides Page in a while. Nice to move a few things into the “Been There” column and add a few goals as well.
Whenever I first created that page, my vest looked like this:
And now it looks like this:
That’s a LOT of fun. That’s a lot of stories. That’s a lot of miles. That’s a lot of America I’ve seen. I take it out and look at it to get me through the winter. One thing it’s not, though, is a conversation starter. I had assumed that people out on the road would share my curiosity and ask me about some of the roads on my patches – not so much.
That’s OK. I see so many people who wear vests covered with “HOG rally 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021” etc. or the same thing with Sturgis! Listen man, no one’s got a vest that looks anything like mine – front or back.
