I didn't go to Rolling Thunder this year. Bummer.There were more than 2 million bikes in DC yesterday. I had a pretty good sampling of exhaust note all around me.
I either pulled or ripped a muscle in my side or maybe something else has happened that's causing me pain that ain't going away. I decided to rest it over the last week until my next doctor follow-up appointment in a few days, hopefully to see if it gets better. It didn't. :-|
Usually by this time of year I'd have at least two trips under my belt. So far this year: none. The funny thing is that riding the motorcycle itself doesn't cause any discomfort, but all the associated activity of motocamping and touring would. I still ride, but just daily fun runs and commuting.
I'm hoping to get it all figured out soon so I can get back to traveling.
