Nite RyderzThe motorcycle season of 2017 is officially opened. Yesterday the Nite Ryderz went for the first ride of the year and it turned out pretty damn great…

Now, riding in the middle of March is as gamble as to temperature, road conditions (loose gravel everywhere) and rapid changes in the weather but sometimes you have to say ”fuck it” and just do it.

It was thrilling to suit up, put on the gear and hear the bikes roar to life. The first few minutes the all too familiar feeling of fear combined with freedom was present but it’s amazing how fast you get back to old habits, which in this case means fun, playful riding. But being the responsible riders we are, we first did the usual control of tire pressure and such. And then we roamed the streets…

This year my focus with riding will be somewhat different. I’ve invested quite a hefty bit of money (to me at least) in a tent and multi fuel stove to be able to do more camping. I will try to combine riding vacations with hiking so getting the best gear is essential.

I am also planning to commute more. Not to save time or anything, because riding takes a lot longer than going with the subway in my case, but to start my days with something positive and end them. Hopefully this will put more joy to the time in between…
