Riding the Wind

A  L  O  H  A !

Oahu has been enjoying 
wintry windy wet


After all the recent
change, shock,
passings, holidays. . . 

It's kinda nice
to cozy up
listen to the 
see the rains. . . 

Perhaps a
golden sunset,
 a sudden gap
in the clouds
as they
rush over us. . . 

Only got up 
to the mid 70s f

Zipped out
on my scooter
for a quick
grocery raid.

Riding on two wheels
demands total 

Wind gusts
make it more-so
to a factor of 

When I entered
the H-1 
to go to the 
very next exit,
I had to 

And Yell!

And ride the wind
like a tornado,
like a surfer
on a 40 foot wave,
skittering over the 
at full


I'm an experienced

I was riding
THE    W I N D!

I love the cloud formation in the third photo - and love even more the image of you riding the wind - and am very glad you did so safely.

It's not hard to tell who's never been on two wheels at 75 miles an hour.

Omg I have such a clear image of you, wind in your hair flying down the highway with such enthusiasm..excellent. Equally fantastic would be the cosying up listening to the wind howling outside, I'm more than a tad envious! I want wind and rain!

The weather is different here too. It's cold, snowy and I've stayed home for two days. Nice that you ride the wind. That first picture kept me focused for some moments. I really like it. Happy week end,

You could speedily, (but safely please) scooter to a skydiving dropzone and continue your windiness. DrumMajor
