Motorcycle rider –
Now riding a 1984 Yamaha FJ1100. Comfy, looks good for its age, decent fuel economy, seriously hauls the mail at times and generally easy to handle. Preferred riding: 6+ hours putting on the miles anywhere in Ontario’s cottage country.
My sanity saver. You never see a motorcycle in the parking lot of a psychiatrist’s office.
Paddling – not so much since I got into motorcycles but for years it has provided the same escape; bringing the mind into focus to constantly manage the task at hand, eliminating thoughts of anything else. Both activities are great therapy.
