Good Bye Burnsie!

Today I said good bye to my lovely Honda Shadow 600, one of the all time best bikes in my opinion for short girls to ride.

I didn’t get to play on Burnsie much in the later months due to always carting around passengers, but when I was able to ride all the time he never failed to cheer me up.

My favorite memory was riding over a bridge on a misty morning when a pelican flew up alongside me.  Halfway across the bridge we raced together and then he veered up and over the water.  The whole incident was like spiritual adrenaline and I was charged up for the rest of the week at least.

What an awesome memory that was; face tingling from the mist and rain and racing a pelican over the bay.  I hope Burnsie goes on to be appreciated and loved.
