I am in my room at Colby Kansas, and in a couple hours will be leaving for Manitou Springs Colorado. Staying a a place located at the base of Pikes Peak.

There is a man here at the hotel, on a dresser Honda VTX, from Alberta. He is on his way to Arizona. He and his wife have friends there. Each year he rides his bike to Arizona, leaves it in the friends garage and flies home. Then he and the wife fly to Arizona at Christmas time, spend a couple weeks, and have a bike to ride.

Then when the weather clears, he flies to Arizona and brings the bike back to Canada. Thats living.

I wonder if he has a around town bike just for those wanting moments.

I like that, he's thinking outside the box. Here in most of Canada except for Vancouver Island,the Queen Charlotte Islands and a few other small geographic locations our winters are from November til March or April. I've thought
about that type of thing myself. Good for him.
