False Neutral #18: I Don't FEEL Tardy…

This week’s episode was devoted to catching up. I had just returned from nine days in Alaska, and Garrett had also been traveling, so we hadn’t spoken in a while. Eric and Garrett each caught up on project bike maintenance. I had to catch up on the conversation after dropping into the conversation about ten minutes late (after staying late at work to, you guessed it, catch up on office tasks). I showed up just as Garrett was wanting to taunt me about the FZ-10. And my leathers. (Yes, again.) We went on to catch up on lots of other topics we’ve discussed in the past, including the deadly happenings at this year’s Isle of Man TT. We did manage to talk about some new stuff: how VW’s woes might affect Ducati and a couple of new motorcycle models we had not discussed previously.

    Funny enough, I was looking at an F650CS on Auto Trader a week or two ago (under $3k Cdn with about 25k miles is tempting, if I could spare $3k)- had no idea it existed until then. They really do look incredibly dated (even moreso in stock photography and brochures), but it kind of works for me. I’m going to chalk that up to being a teenager when they first came out, so the aesthetic of the time imprinted on me?

      It’ll get you from Point A to Point but you’ll forget how you got there. Just like the BMW F-xxx parallel twins, innocuousness is its defining feature.
