So I got home from school and decided to get some Seat Time...

My buddies were busy so I thought I'd ride around myself. Riding alone is boring as :/:

Just thought I'd share.

i use to have this "route" that i would do by myself, probably 3 times a month, just to be by myself, nothing there, just me and the bike and every once in a while a car, but i knew it well and always enjoyed all the thoughts that filled my head when i was by myself, just hummin to myself.

yep, a good ride by yourself can do some great things

Ride every day *brudda*

phucking ran outta gas coming over the Ship Channel Bridge today.. Had to coast down to the Clinton exit and then pushed the bike the last 100 meters or so to the gas station

Resting right now with an ice cold Pepsi before heading back out to ride... nice sunset right now..
