As the temps are bleak and the wind is howling at 40mph gusting to 70mph, its hard to believe that in 90 days I’ll be pushing off on my adventure of a lifetime on a motorcycle. There is so much to do and at times I feel overwhelmed but other times I know that it takes a lot to put this all together and even baby steps forward are at least steps forward. This past week I did manage to get the aluminum frame piece that holds the signs to the bike started. The welding shop will get it going in the next few days. I also set up several meetings with potential sponsors and had conversations with a couple of cancer research foundations. All positive.
As I get things prepared for the bike I have been spending a lot of time watching You Tube videos on how to pack light, safety tips, gear needed, riding in traffic hints and so on. There is a lot of good useful information out there and some of the You Tubers that I have connected with have been to my website and have given me positive feedback. I am not all that technical savvy but I may try to do a video or two myself. I have been fooling around a bit with my old GoPro to mount on the bike, but the more I fiddle with it the more I want something a bit more user friendly and simpler to use. I’ll keep looking. I still need to get a new phone so maybe I will incorporate a mounting system for that and get some additional uses out of one electronic devise. We’ll keep playing.
