Palm Springs Window Reflections

Palm Springs Window Reflections

Having my picture taken isn’t fun. I hate the way I look.

Sometimes I go through the process of taking selfies to try to work through these feelings. At this point, it seems like a futile effort to come to terms with the aging person that I am.

When I look at the person in the pictures it’s never the person I feel like on the inside. Geeeeezus, who the fuck is this old bag with the tired eyes?!

What comes next is an exercise in tallying up all of the things that are “wrong” with me and then spiraling into a loop of self-loathing. Is this normal? Sometimes I feel like it might be. I mean, who isn’t plagued by some level of feeling like if they just had <insert thing here> then they’d feel a million-bajillion times better? Is it all just a matter of degrees?

Taking pics in my riding gear or with my helmet on, or even wearing my glasses feels much easier. There is a sense of safety in being covered in some way. You see me, but you don’t. I prefer that.

Who would’ve ever though just showing yourself to the world as you are, would be such an act of vulnerability? 🤷‍♀️Especially considering you walk around all day doing just that.

Anyway, this was me, in my safety suit, reflected in the SHAG store window in Palm Springs.

Stay weird, friends.

Things I could use:
(In no particular order)
+ A lint roller
+ Jack Daniels
+ A hug

After a bit of a rocky start this morning, I finally got underway on a road trip.

It isn’t uncommon for me to kind of burn the first day getting my sea legs.

I left home with ZERO plan. I reserved the bike yesterday right before I flew out and put no thought into what to do with my time.

So, I just sorta winged it today and landed in Palm Springs for the night. Not sure what tomorrow will bring. Hopefully more sunshine and nice, warm weather.

Right in, ride on.

Motorcycle Road Porn on Instagram (2019)

The motorcycle road porn that is featured on the Instagram account @instaroads is fantasy fuel. The photos there are sure to get you hot under your motorcycle jacket’s collar.

While you’re scrolling through, take a moment and imagine you on your motorcycle in these photos. There you are, leaning through the undulating curves, taking in the grand landscapes, feeling the wind, smelling the air… incredible.

Here are a few of my favorites:

Inspiring Women Motorcyclists – Dream Big

Because of women like these seven, there are riders on the other side of the screen thinking to themselves, “I would love to do that!”

And maybe, just maybe, one of those riders who’s watching will find the power within themselves to chase their own dream. They’ll see their images and read their words and know that whatever is holding them back isn’t as important as what is inspiring them to go forward.

Thank you, ladies. Thanks for sharing your view of the world with us.
