It was truly a gorgeous day today in Costa Rica!
I had a fun ride with a group of (new) friends, thanks to Luis Herrera, who added me to his motorcycle “friends” Facebook group. Of course I was the first one to arrive at Honda SAVA! I have to laugh at the fact that I still like to get to places on time.
We did the Aguacate/Puriscal loop which I do regularly — as do many bikers.
I managed to keep up, but realize I do need a bigger bike if I am going to ride in groups on the highway. Maybe someday! I think a Honda cb 500 might be perfect for me.
Riding alone is more of a spiritual experience for me. It’s a magical pause to relish the quiet and beauty of Costa Rica.
Riding in a group is about the group. Being with friends and enjoying their company. A different thing altogether.
I think one of these guys will ride with me every now and then, since he too is a solitary rider. This is the best of both worlds! Looking forward to it.
Song: Born to be wild. Maybe! In some ways it is too rock-and-roll-y for this day. Maybe the song, “I’ve got sunshine on a cloudy day” fits better, though it was not a cloudy day. But it fits “my girl,” my Honda! Haha!
