I hate being overheated.
When I lived in the south I was constantly unhappy.
I would walk outside and have trouble breathing. I hated that I could sweat through my clothing just standing around. I got where I missed the cold. There are certain things you just can’t do when the weather is too hot. When I moved to Portland, Or I was happy that the weather was mainly cool to moderate. Running errands was suddenly a wonderful thing for me. I love riding my motorcycle anywhere I can. In the south it was crazy with the horrible driving and the weather. The people of Portland are much safer and more cautious on the road. The weather is also ideal biker weather. In the colder months I just wear my thick leather jacket and pants. In the warmer months I can get by with jeans and a vest. I go for long bike rides through the city and make stops along the way. The best ride is going to the cannabis dispensary near me. In Oregon there is legal recreational cannabis. So I like to drive there, pick up some fun edibles or cannabis oil, and then drive back home. I frequent the legal pot shop all the time due to the ride and the awesome weather for it. Anytime I see that my recreational cannabis dispensary is throwing a sale, I make an effort to stop by. I get to see all the local businesses in town and some of the pretty foliage while driving along. There is just something about a motorcycle ride that is so much better.
