Riding to Nowhere

Ever had the sudden urge to go nowhere..I had one of those weeks..tough work and good company..Nine days on the road..long days and wonderful nights..Moving houses from hell and dealing with the youngsters with checkbooks..Lemon cream pie and Dos XX's..A 36 hour work day..and a short nap..A Shovelhead in the driveway and nowhere to go..

Now a ride to nowhere always puts you somewhere. Maybe you know where somewhere is and maybe you don't..It is all about riding, clearing the mind, places have no meaning only other than that's where you went. Today's nowhere was a left turn at the crossroads..Fruit tree's and Oranges tree's..follow the path less traveled..no people only the winds and the pipes to sooth the mind..Long straights to hammer and one lane twisty s to play..Slow country roads to enjoy..What starts out as a short ride ends up after the sun goes down..The bodies worn but the mind is fresh..problems are solved..My Sunshine is still my Sunshine..life is good...Someday we will travel the road to nowhere together...

Midway rides to nowhere, that go somewhere but it is what is in between that counts..Meet and go,,nice and slow,,savor,,nibble and chew rides??

Santa Nella, Split pea soup and Highway 33, Santa Nella to Shields ave..Over the hill to 145 backdoor to Hollister,,101 to Famous Daves for BBQ..Merced 59 backdoor to Jamestown..The Crossroads for Bacon and eggs, Merced to 49, Mariposa for the butterflies,,down the road for the spa and how not to hemorrhage money at the Blackjack table..first hour on me..for both..seafood and steak buffet to die for,,more carrot cake for desert..Mariposa take a left on 49 and head through echo canyon..load pipe rock your world for 20 minutes..a burger with grilled onions and no sauce at Buffalo burger..ahh so many choices..get better..
