Nah! on my motorcycle, I can get two, maybe 3, bags in the milk crate on the rear seat so I don't like shopping on the bicycle unless I KNOW that I am not going to have a lot to get. today I DID take it, i got 3 bottles of tonic water, a bottle of Gin, 2 limes (guess what I am doing with THAT stuff!!! RIGHT!) and some sour cream for SWMBO. If I am going for "real" I take the SUB. MUCH easier to load groceries on that than the MC. This is the contrast. the motorcycle is a bit faster, and does not really use much gas, (Last tankful was 109 mpg) and insurance is like $35 a year. OK, that is fine, but the bicycle has more cargo room and it is easier to simply USE. I prefer to commute on my bicycle if I can. But who can say...I STILL have to fix the fuel pump on my little car!
I wonder how Anne Littlebird is doing? She must be pretty
busy with her music and work. Anne are you there?
