I got the job.

No, not that one, this one. The one that I already had.

The executive leadership team heard I was looking elsewhere and actively interviewing, and stepped up their schedule to give me my long-overdue review. And my new manager stepped up and worked with me to create a new role, with a broader scope, management responsibilities, staff for me in next year's budget, and a career path.

And a $15k/year raise, with another increase scheduled next year.

Work is pretty dang good.


I think I have finally - after going through 6 motorcycles in 5 years - figured out what type of riding I do nowadays, and the type of motorcycle that fits me.

This is my sport-touring bike (1991 Honda ST1100) I am getting ready to sell:

And these are the two bikes I am currently looking at:

Yamaha Royal Star Tour Deluxe -

Indian Scout 60 -

Gotta take em for rides, find the right one for sale, etc. But these seem to fit the type of rider I am nowadays. It's been 40+ years of riding, and I've pretty much had every other type of bike out there! So maybe it's time for me to have a grandad bike.

Get the Indian!!! (Sorry. Been reading John Irving for months. If you would like to play John Irving novel bingo, motorcycles and specifically Indians are definitely worth a square.)
