Once we got her home, though, I had to get into the truck to drive to the Camp Pendleton Motorcycle Training office, to get the little yellow card that allows me to ride a motorcycle on base. Once I did that, I raced back home. I had a little less than an hour to make the 45-minute ride up to the Naval Weapons Station in Fallbrook to register the bike. I made it to the pass & ID office with less than five minutes to spare.
But the bike got registered, so i can drive it to work on Thursday. I did, I admit, go by my office to let the guys look at it. Then it was a 45-minute ride back to the house.
I hated to put the bike up, but, unfortunately, I have other things I have to do. So, I’ll have to be satisfied with 2 1/2 hours on the bike today.
Still, today was a good day.
