back in the saddle again

note: this is one of a number of entries that were lost in a server crash, followed by a desktop crash, back in late 2004. on march 1, 2009, i happened on a cache file on the crashed desktop hard drive, so i am reloading all of the entries with their original date and time values intact for posterity.

mileage at the end of today: 384
i didn’t make up for the 10 miles under from yesterday, but i did manage to get 50 for today. which is good, considering when my alarm went off this morning it was pouring rain, and continued to do so for at least the next 30 minutes. in fact, my street was flooded up to my sidewalk and i had to wait an hour for the water to go down so i could drive my pickup to work. there was still a lot of standing water and people stranded and such, but i made it okay. so all my riding was done after i got home from work.
i also noticed tonight that the vin number on my insurance was wrong. the first character should have been “1” but it was an “I”. i called progressive and they updated it and are sending me new cards and such. of course, i probably won’t get them before i leave on my trip.
speaking of not getting stuff before the trip: i hope i get my new driver’s license in the mail before i leave. my current one expires on july 1. i also hope the dealership gets my new permanent plates before i leave. i’m thinking temp texas dealer plates and an expired license on a motorcycle might not be a winning combination when going on an extended road trip through multiple states.
