I’ve been moving hard to find 2-stroke 250cc race bikes for a special client overseas for two years now. Number five belonged to a personal friend who had war stories from Angola and Northern Ireland and fostered large breed dogs in need of training and shelter while awaiting adoption. He had a stroke last year and no longer rides this one despite the recent WERA sticker on the fairing. He stood in the trailer with me while loading and placed his hand on the tail the way you pet an old dog goodbye for the last time. He mentioned seeing the bike again if he is lucky and makes it to the Isle of Mann TT this year. Amidst the thick air of emotion, his wife interrupted our conversation and introduced herself. I had never seen her before but she was wearing a @motohub_usa shirt. Said she got it from a friend but had no idea what sort of full circle had been drawn before her. Finished loading and stopped the seller on his way back to the house. Asked him what size shirt he wore and pulled it for him. Can’t have that wife of his showing him up on race day!
Biscayne NP: you definitely need a boat to see almost everything the park is known for. I went looking for manatees to get in on some underwater napping but they were still on spring break. If you plan a trip here, book a ride to Boca Chita Key to see the lighthouses and shipwrecks. I need to come back with a Whaler.
Everglades National Park Day 1: you need a canoe or kayak to get into the good stuff here. I tried to find a spot to go swimming but they’re kind of against breaststroking with the gators. There’s a Cuban Missile Crisis site that Kennedy deployed an Air Defense Artillery unit to from Fort Bliss to shoot down anything that might launch out of Havana that wasn’t a mojito. Hurricane Irma destroyed a lot of the buildings so some of the remote visitors centers like Flamingo are half shut down still, but the fancy pink paint jobs held up. Also, gator bites are good but gator ribs are great!!!
Part 2 tomorrow!!!!
Found a magic wand hiking in the Flatirons at night. Apparently, I’m a Bright. You may all send tribute in accordance with the prophecy. I’ll be working on my spells to modify winning lottery tickets and opening a magic-themed nightclub in the foothills. Hit elven girls apply via DM.
