In my free time I really enjoy riding motorcycles. It's kind of my way of getting away from all the sitting and reading and writing that I do in my job, and which I enjoy, but which can lead to cabin fever! I have a dirt bike, which is an 87 Honda CR500, a dual purpose Suzuki DR650, and an old shovelhead Harley 79 Superglide FXE that I've had for over 20 years. I try to ride almost every day in the good seasons so you'll see me on these bikes this summer coming to work.
The last great book I read was The Story of Edgar Sawtelle. It's a long novel about a boy who can communicate with dogs on a high level. I love dogs and it was a moving book.
Nice to meet you all!
