Ride to work with Shoganai

Reason for nuking post:

I’m saddened to be seen as an attention seeker when all I thought I was doing was sharing my life among fellow riders.

In order to live as humbly as I can, I must avoid the appearance of attention seeking behavior.

Perhaps I was posting to feed my ego, because it did make me feel good when people said they liked or supported what I said. But at the same time it made me uncomfortable. I think that uncomfortable feeling was because deep down I knew it fed my ego, and that was not living humbly.

I have received more than I’m worthy and given as much as I could to this site and it’s members. For both, I’m grateful.

Off to seek peace in all things and to ride with joy.
I wish for you all the same.

Gwen

Did the turtle pee in your saddlebag? I think it's a defensive mechanism.

Shoganai,
Thx for the trip! Have a mellow night and enjoy that morning ride.
Tell those fine folks you're hanging out with that they've all got the smiles of truly nice people. Bless you all.
Whence AK? I did a speedy weekend run up to Atigun Pass (on the Haul Road) and befriended some nice places to stay this summer... you're going to like it!
Have a great shift and ride safely in the morning.

oh, and stunning pics!

Strewth, you're amazing, how do you fit all that "stuff" into one life?

I'm in awe of anyone who works in nursing, (here in the UK at least) it's under valued and grossly underpaid AND you've got room for all those animals and children and a four hour commute!
Stand up and receive the applause you deserve

Cheers
-Simon

Gorgeous report. Well done.

144 miles and a 12 hour shift has gotta make for some seriously long days.
