We went riding today, but first I had to have my battery charged up. Jimmy rolled my bike out and when I tried to start it I could tell that the battery was weak so I didn't want to completely kill the battery so I asked Jimmy if he wouldn't please connect the battery charger to my battery for a little while.
It was a beautiful day and only required a sweatshirt when we left and as the day progressed it got even warmer. It was a perfect day and I wish all days were as nice as this one was today. It was very enjoyable so I rode a little longer than I usually do on my first trip out after winter. Jimmy rides all through winter, but I don't...I'm a fair weather rider.
As my family knows, I make up all kinds of excuses as to why I can't ride. It's either too cold, too windy or my back hurts or I'm tired...when really I'm just too scared even though I love it. I can't explain my fear. So when I asked Jimmy to charge up my battery he thought it was another one of my excuses. I have an initial fear of my first ride each spring, but once I take the plunge and ride, I'm fine and wonder why I'm so hesitant in the first place. Well today I over came my fear once again, so now I'm alright.
