Going on a ride tomorrow

I'm going to visit my brother tomorrow 140 miles away. Not a long ride, but further than I normally go on weekends. I've had this horrible feeling all week like something bad is going to happen. I don't believe in premonitions but. . . I'm not posting this for attention, in fact I hope no one even reads it until I get back home on Monday. When I get down to ventura I'll post on this thread and when I get back home I will post again. Should this be my last post on this forum then I guess I didn't make it back home for whatever reason. This is a really great community and I hope im on the vtxoa daily for the next few years

Espresso and motorcycles both have a way of making us feel alive, happy and free. Both of these thing, however, can be ruined if you don't start with good G R O U N D S.

If I were god, and I had a specific premonition, I would listen to myself. 😀

However, I too have had some strange premonitions about possible mishaps during an upcoming drive or a ride. But, being a regular mortal, Iíve never put too much stock in such ideas. Just figure itís my subconscious reminding me to be cautious and defensive when behind the wheel or in the saddle.

Reminding yourself that you are invisible when on a bike is a healthy thing to do.

Well my premonition came true after all. Bike started to ride like sh1t after 30 miles and I had to turn back. But at least I didn't crash. Fml, back to the 1800 technical forum for this guy.

Sorry it worked out that way, but you'll get it figured out.

I think so, it's still a Honda after all, they don't quit easy.
