I took my motorcycle grocery shopping today, for the first time in about 40 years. I got new saddlebags for Christmas, and they each hold one fairly full grocery bag. I didn’t know that until today. It’s been too cold for me to enjoy shopping on the bike.
I had some errands to do and very little time to do them, and we’re going to walk later when biker buddy gets home from work. (Yes, he often works on Saturdays). I got the bike out and my helmet and goggles and attached the saddlebags and rode off to mail off some estate-related lawyerly papers priority mail and then went to the Village Market.It was sunny and warm and I went in my T-shirt. I locked my helmet and bags every stop. I did my errands and zipped home. More fun than the car, if a little bit more time consuming.
