Day 31, 12/31/11

the final day...out with a fizzle!

I slept really bad last night.. actually I didn't sleep at all, I was up until 4:30 am...sick!, than got up around 10am for a few hrs than went back to bed around noon. When I got up again around 4:30 I knew I needed to head out or I would never get the last day done.

My original plan was to ride at night to some of the first night celebrations in Worcester than take my final photo in front of a clock at 11:59. Temps were supposed to be above freezing all night but the whole day it drizzled and I was more than a little nervous about black ice. ( around 10pm that night the sanding truck went by our house so I was glad I changed my plans) So around 6pm I suited up and took the KLR out for the final ride of the 2011 riding season.



Right down the road I found my "S" for the letter tag

I also tried to get a moon in the shot





Like many rides before I had a hard time getting motivated to get out...but once I felt the cold breeze in my face I had a hard time coming home. I rode around my home town of West Boylston just enjoying the holiday lights that were still out and shining.

When I got home and parked the KLR I had done just a little bit under 1,500 miles in the month of December. I managed to get every bike I had on the road out for at least one ride.

We settled in with the kids and watched a good family movie (Paul Blart Mall Cop) than watched the ball fall at midnight.

It was a great year!

I can't help it if she can't remember how much they cost. I told her two years ago.

I'd never steal your pink font OSJ
