Last Wednesday was my last ride to work for the foreseeable future. I'm not throwing in the towel, just carpooling full time. Carpooling is a good thing, since I get to spend more time with Lady Luck, save wear and tear on the bike, and reduce our fuel costs.
The downside is, I go kind of nuts when I don't ride for a long time. When I ride to work, I get about one and a half hours of quality motorcycle time in per day without taking time away from other hobbies and responsibilities. I can find time to ride, believe me, but it's nice having a consistent level of moto-goodness as a structured part of my week.
On the other hand, now my rides should be more adventurous, on the whole, than the usual back and forth routine. Perhaps this will be a good development for future ride reports.
