On August 3rd, 2020, I went to buy my new Honda 500 XA…SAHARA!!! This was my 22-year anniversary in Recovery. (And the start of recovery with love addiction! Hahaha! Here is my Facebook post on the root cause of this dis-ease.) WOW!!! What a gift to myself and to my life journey!
After signing the papers, on the way home, I decided to ride down to Los Sueños in Herradura to celebrate!! The Hook Up was closed, but I found La Lanterna restaurant and was pleased with both the food and the atmosphere. Yum!
The next day, my dear friend and teacher, Felix Franco, Clever Rider Instructor, also affectionately known as Sensei, gifted me with a ride to Honda to go pick her up and ride her home!! I am so touched by his generous act of kindness, taking time out of his day to do this for me. May the universe shower him with love and blessings!
I was going to have Honda deliver Sahara to my house. But Felix had suggested it was better to ride her home. He was so right!! Riding her home was a historic moment in my life. Hahaha! I am so touched that he also made the effort of taking photos of my ride home (well, some of it)! Que manera!! Que amigo mas amigo!!
Rather than go straight home, I decided to go to La Casita del Cafe for a snack. 🙂
And then, SARAHA WAS HOME!!
I am so moved by Felix’s act of friendship that tears are welling up!
I can’t wait to go on many adventures with my new companion. 🙂
I love my motorcycle family: Los Rejuntados and my motorcycles!!! La Honda Tropical, Storm!, and SAHARA. Of course, my XL won’t stay long, but there is no hurry to get rid of her, especially not now with the driving restrictions during the Coronavirus pandemic.
RIDING IN COSTA RICA: KNOW THE LOVE!
Date of purchase, August 3, 2020. Date of bringing her home, August 4, 2020.
