As I said I love riding but yesterday I took Stella out for a ride about 30 miles round trip and found that it was a boring ride.
Has anyone ever had this happen before?
I guess riding single has just caught up with me yesterday.
We are going out again today hopefully it was a one time thing.
And I am not losing my love for riding.;)

Come on Jerry!!! Its the mileage that is the problem.;) 30 miles barely gets the heart pumping. I guess its better than being parked in the garage though.

we rode 1 mile in the other direction and stopped at a pull off hunting spot and the three of us parked our bikes and bull****** for a while and i guess smoked ourselfs stupid, in this whole trip i drove 3 miles was gone 5 hours and went through 2 packs of smokes,got home checked on wife she just had surgery,she asked how was your bike ride honey i replied dont ask i sold the bike 2 days later, now i have a different wing and my two friends have moved away

I feel the same way at times. I find that if I go for a longer ride with friends I lose the feeling.

I found this to be true with my sport bike. Although living in Florida has a bit to do with that. After riding the mountains (single) and the racetrack, I don't even take out the sport bike anymore. One of the main reasons I got the wing was so I can take the wife with me on longer rides. So far its been great and I am gearing the bike up slowly for a good long distance ride in the spring time. It has renewed my love for riding. Maybe its just the different bike but riding the straight flat roads of Florida, the wing serves its purpose.

Maybe a change in motorcycle is in order?

Riding does wonders for my head clearing. Going on a trip lifts the spirit for weeks before the trip. And when away it like on a high. The birds wake me up, the sunset and sunrise make me bounce out of bed. It the simple things that take on such beauty, the running creek with the frogs at full song. Sitting around a camp fire with a stick and a marshmellow. Even putting the kettle on at a bush stop and talking with another traveller. No I haven't lost the love of it yet. I can't wait for the next adventure. The plans are on the drawing boards right now. Eric
