We didn’t get an autumn this year. Not really.

There’s already salt and snow on the ground. Early in the morning, there’s ice. Thanksgiving is tomorrow. For the past few years, that hasn’t been the case around here. My SO and I would usually be riding motorcycles late into the season.

I remember one year that I was out riding around a couple of days after the New Year when we had a freak warm front come through. There’s a special kind of satisfaction that suffuses your limbs when you ride at a time when most people wouldn’t.

This year, we’re unfortunately resigned to driving a bit earlier than has usually been the case. But a) bunnies, and b) motorsports on the DVR.

I’m also pretty sure that I’m one of the only people (if not the only person) you know who’s currently knitting a design based on a professional MotoGP racer’s helmet.

Photos will come when it’s complete, but it’s gonna be awesome. I promise.

Until then, happy Thanksgivukkah, everyone! 😀
