Pimpin’ my ride

Footpeg2 Okay, I admit: my fascination for bling is turning into an obsession. What was once a little bit of this and a little bit of that has turned to a “going to make heads turn”-thing. Fortunately for me, most of the blinking doesn’t cost too much since I try to shop on sales and maybe not the most exclusive brands. After all, who’s going to notice the difference between a hundred dollar peg and a five dollar one when I roar past them…?

The latest addition was actually sent to me so quick to be a five dollar thing from eBay China that I don’t know how they managed to do it. Nine days from ordering to delivery, that’s got to be some kind of record. Usually the money you save on the item is lost in time, but if they have found a way of improving logistics to this point, it’s going to be a game changer.

Speaking of game changers, I am itching to get back in the seat to see if I still feel fear when riding or if I’m over it by now. My body keeps reminding me though, especially my wrist joints not to mention my knee cap. I do hope knee caps heal by themselves.

I’ve started looking for a good tent to bring with me on epic journeys but I am torn between buying an expensive but really good tent from Hilleberg which I can use on these hikes I’ve been thinking about but never got around to do or one of these cheaper tents which includes space for the motorcycle but lack the robustness of the Hilleberg tent. I don’t want to waste money because that is something I really lack, but at the same time I know that poor gear can ruin the best intentions. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Even better, if you happen to be manufacturer and want your tent tested, drop me a line.
