Francois_Dumas Posted May 26, 2006 Share Posted May 26, 2006 Or am I the only one !!?? Somehow my 'art' of preparing for a safe ride includes a LONG preparation phase. Nina says I am fussing..... as if I am staling to get on the bike. Perhaps I am.... am I!? First I go upstairs to get my riding gear.. trousers and jacket, and documents. I get into my trousers, don one or other long sleeved sweater or shirt.... then go down and put all my stuff 'at the ready' in my office: Bottle of water, ear plugs, gloves, helmet, boots, jacket, scarf, documents, keys, cap, maps (sometimes), CAMERA, something to nibble on, second pair of glasses, sunglasses.... Nina starts giggling at this point..... my whole desk is full ! Then I go out to take the cover off the bike and put it in the shed, unlock the disk lock, store it, and push the bike off its center stand and forward on the 'parking', ready to 'load' it. Next is to put all the stuff from my desk in the little tank locker and top case, and some in my jacket pockets. OOPS, forgot my mobile phone..... Then it is time to get the boots on, scarf when its cold, carry the remaining things such as helmet and gloves outside. Then I check the bike... tires, lights, fuel, oil.... nah, already did that when I stored it OOPS, forgot the key of the garden gate.... get it and unlock it..... Almost ready now.... put on my jacket.... I am already half an hour busy now........ no rush, really getting into the idea of riding, enjoying the anticipatin already almost.... So am I fussing too much !!??? Do you fuss ?? Just curious... Francois Link to comment
