Lunch ride in January

It started as most of our rides do, with a text message: “MOTO-lunch?” A couple of texts later,  we agree and plan to meet at 11:30.


Jim Osbun has been retired for a couple of years although he has worked some part-time jobs. Currently, he is riding a Honda Gold Wing. He’s been through three bikes since I first met him several years ago. I’m on the same one, my Suzuki V-Strom DL650.

Jim and I meet almost every week for coffee. Sometimes, it’s on the motorcycles and a breakfast ride ensues. We are often joined by a third friend, Ian, who is a fine Scotsman, and I am honored to call him friend.

We met, as planned, and then headed out for a brisk ride through the countryside. Temperature about 50 degrees, the ride was comfortable although a brisk wind was out of the southwest. We wandered for 30 or 40 minutes and then ended up back where we started to enjoy one of the best restaurants in our area, City Barbeque.

The ride was great. The food was delicious. The company was most enjoyable.

Call a friend, and go riding. See you on the highway!

  1. That’s one of the best things about riding – sharing it with some good company. Good food doesn’t hurt either.
