Thinkin about leaving...

Hey guys, any of you just pack all of your necessities in a couple boxes, slap a shipping label on them, jump on your bike, and just go?

I live in the Inland Empire (not Anaheim) region of California, where life is, for the most part, not possible. Buy not possible, I mean, here mostly everything is fake. From the buildings to the pavement, landscape to atmosphere, here in the inland empire, it's tough to get in touch with mother nature. Here in the inland empire, it's hard to eat healthy, hard to be heard, hard to make a global difference.

Here most people have a false sense of accomplishment, a yearn to cock measure, here a lot of insecurity exists. Some of you may be thinking, these things exists everywhere, we can't know for sure, unless we've been everywhere.

I just know that for 27 years, I've been here, and today it's just me, haven't met anyone like me, even with siblings and relatives. So maybe I should go search, hunt if you will, for likeness, for change, and if not change, people who want change, will die fighting for change. I am not one to be content, or one who says "well what can you do?" Change yourself you change the world. And maybe that starts with a change in location.

Any of you just say f it, let's see where my intuition takes me...I know my streety would love to.

your only direction is east. better stay to deep south while traveling. anything else will be unbearably cold. Fla. would be a great destination.

Yep, I am in Georgia... Not so back here... I am from San Diego. I like it here cause I have about 6 race tracks within 4 hours of me, in every direction. Not to mention everything is green here!

Stay away from Florida if you enjoy things like "curves" and/or "hills."

Try Georgia or SC. I hear they're nice this time of year.

Damn fellas you're about to make this real lol. There is a lot more going into this decision as you can imagine, so I need to round off any possible sharp edges before I go.

jk what part of Florida? I have a cousin living in north Miami.

I'm a weird guy supposedly. According to my mother I'm an alien. If any of you have read Zen Mind, Beginners Mind by Shunryu Suzuki, That book describes my personality and outlook on life pretty accurately. Just living in the moment and accepting all possibilities, and the reality of death. Just focusing on my breathing, and letting my intuition lead the way.

Like when I'm on my bike :)

Side note while it's on my mind, last week I was at my cousins house, his brother-in-law comes over, and sees my helmet sitting there on the entry table. Here is the dialogue:

Him- who's helmet?

Me- that's mine.

Him- what do you have a Vespa?

Me- no, it's in the garage.
(we walk to the garage)

Him- ok sick sick, what's this?
(he points to my center tank pad)

Me- that's for my nuts man.
(I lined 2 rows of foam tape)

Him- oh just sit back man.

Me- I like my weight to be forward, I like to hug the tank.

Him- nah man just sit back and lean.

Me-(chuckling) alright man.

Him- bro I fly at 140!

Me- oh you have a motorcycle license?!

Him- yeah bro I fly at 140...no.

Me- (laughing) aight then man.

Him- bro talk to me when you have an eleven hundred.
(walks back inside)

I turn to my cousin and ask him, what does he wear on his feet when he rides, my cousin says sneakers.

You guys aren't those guys right? Lol.

Hit the road. Life is all about maximising experiences and minimising regrets, and the last thing you want is to be regretting the experiences you didn't have.

I'm a bit of a nomad myself... I'd guess that I've lived in something like 20 towns. Liked most, didn't like a couple, haven't regretted any, met people whose company I enjoy in all.
