Did you ride enough miles last year? Are you sitting home now with snow piled up along the driveway where just a month or two ago you parked your bike, wishing you had ridden that day the weatherman was wrong and it didn't rain? Or the day that was a bit chilly that you drove your cage instead or manning up and riding?
I myself am rather happy with my miles last year. I rode in the rain (like heading home from South Haven Fire Fest in a bad thunderstorm. I stayed just in front of the worst of it!) I froze my butt off more than a few times.
For me, my bike is not something that sits in the garage and gets polished every weekend before a 1 hour ride. No, for me it is how I get around most of the year. It is an expression of my freedom to enjoy the ride to work, or to the bank, or just taking a ride in the country with my girl.
I look back on my spring, summer and fall of riding and have very few regrets. There were a couple of days where I could have ridden instead of caging it, but for the most part, I rode every day I could.
Then there is Short Bus. The man is an animal when it comes to riding! He has logged more miles than anyone else in the chapter last year. He has even been out a number of times this winter.
So, I tip my hat to the Short Bus. I hope to ride as many or more miles than you this year!
As soon as the snow is gone. Damn, you have a head start on me already!
Welcome to the Rolling Inferno M.C. Tri-County blog!
On this blog we will talk about the goings on in and around Northwest Indiana as far as riding events and gatherings.
The Rolling Inferno M.C. Consists of 4 Indiana Chapters(Indianapolis, The Region, and Northeast) with membership being restricted to Firefighters, Police Officers, EMS, EMA and all other public safety officials.
The Tri-County Chapter was formed in February of 2010 by 12 firefighters and one police officer.
Our goal each year is to enjoy riding and Brotherhood together while raising money for our two charities, Hoosier Burn Camp and Supporting Heroes.
Along the way, we have met a lot of good folks and made some friends.
We hope to see you on the road this year at one of our fundraisers or poker runs!
