Sunday Ride to Cooper’s Rock
I had planned on taking the Volusia out on Sunday. It was supposed to get to a high of 80 with clear skies and sun. I got in touch with Rhillai and we planned to meet at a park called “Cooper’s Rock” which is a natural rock formation that is amazing.
When Sunday arrived, I was torn whether to go. With my computer being down for an upgrade gone awry, I wanted it fixed. But, I was waiting for a drive to copy which was going to take a few hours. That had me at a standstill of sorts. Plus, I think I was needing some time away from that for a bit. I thought about working on my Jeep, since it was needing the rear brakes. I thought about staying home and working on that; but wasn’t sure if there was a recall on the brakes. I wondered how much might be covered under the warranty. I didn’t think there would be much if any at all… but thought it would be worth calling to find out. So, I decided to go ahead with the motorcycle ride.
I met with Rhillai at Cooper’s Rock and we looked at the overlook and then went to look at an 1800’s iron furnace which is a bit of a walk down a trail. It was a nice ride; but the ride back was nicer. I took the back roads on the way back and was more leisurely than the ride there. The ride there was mostly 4 lane with me going highway speeds. I picked a perfect day for the ride, though. It was warm and clear skies with a bright sun.
It was nice to be able to talk to Rhillai for a bit, too.
I was thinking during the return ride that it was the kind of day that Sharyn and I would have gone for a ride. It was the perfect kind of day for her. Normally, one of us would have called the other and we would have ridden together. Sigh.
When I returned, the drive was finished copying and I set to work on getting my problem solved. Within a few minutes, I got things on the road to repair and was finally making progress. So, at times, it’s good to walk away from a problem for a bit.
