It has been almost a year since I last posted. I can offer lots of excuses but none of that really matters. I’m chalking up the past year as a “learning” year – I learned a lot but precious little of it was motorcycle-related. As a new July gets started a new plan for the motorcycles is starting to form in my mind. Otus and Strix both need work to continue to be the motorcycles I need them to be, and there’s a new place for me to do the needed work. The move to a new town is complete and I’ve got a new workshop for the motorcycles. As I return from this hiatus I’ll be getting back to wrenching, writing, and riding – but all of this is going to re-start with an updated plan to revive Otus and Strix.
