I’m bad at goodbyes, so this is hello. Hello past summer, your long days now stretching shorter into September. I’ll miss you.
Truth is, I didn’t take full advantage of summer. No big trips in 2011, and a lot of car and airplane travel kept me busy on the weekends. I got married, too, which I’m sure will be remembered more than the lack of moto miles this year.
The days I did get out and ride? I’ll keep them with me. Partly because each day spent in the hills had its own color and flavor, and also because I filmed them with my GoPro HD Hero helmet camera. Enjoy the footage now or in some years’ time. Makes me wish I wore a helmet for my wedding.
