There has been talk on the blogs lately of trying to combine hobbies. How do you find enough time to get some good riding in on your motorcycle, but still do other activities such as bicycling, canoeing, kayaking, or even gardening?
Well, I think we've discovered a way Bobskoot and Bluekat can combine their enthusiasm for motorcycling and bicycling.
While at a plant nursery in North Albany a while ago we noticed this motorcycle on the highway stopped at a traffic light and quickly grabbed the camera.
Wonder what it would do to the balance of the bike, if anything.
Years ago we saw a bicycle pulling a canoe on a little trailer. Always wondered if you could do that with a motorcycle but I'm thinking you might not want to, as your lines around a corner would really have to change. Maybe with a trike or Can Am Spyder it would be better.

We rode to coffee yesterday morning and by the time Troubadour and I left around noon the sun was already heating things up to be our warmest day this summer. I was starving since my lemon poppyseed scone I'd eaten at 9 :00 was not keeping me full. It felt like my stomach was gnawing a hole in my backbone. Rather than ride for lunch somewhere we decided to come home. I find when I am hungry I get shaky and my riding abilities suffer. I don't find it safe to be riding like that so I thought the 3 mile ride home was the best option.
Of course when we got home and were comfortable with full bellies, it made it hard to go back out. Within a few hours it was 93˚F in the shade out back so we opted to stay inside and stay cool. Yes, that's right, we had a lazy day of doing nothing.
We had the ceiling fan on in the living room and even Basil decided being belly-up under it was the best place to be.
