Biking & Blogging

I got my learner’s permit for the bike yesterday and now I am posting my first blog that my friend Wendy has encouraged me to start writing. I get easily sidetracked in life so it will be a big surprise to me as to what happens in either one of these adventures.

My bike has this terrific feature that is made to stabilize it for smoother riding…it is called auto level. I needed instructions to understand the instructions……

And after many attempts and much time the copy of my instruction manual and instructions will JUST not cooperate and place themselves in this area! I have soooo much to learn!

After all of that I found out it was a very simple procedure. After loading, getting on and starting the bike just push the button and wait for the compressor to level. Why didn’t they say so??? My dear husband Will

always explains things to me like the manual, but then he writes technical manuals for work that have to go to FAA. (No I am not blond!) Plain speaking does work though as does examples of “how to”.

I am using a program on my Firefox browser called ScribeFire to help me write this. One thing I have learned by trial and error is that the neat features do not work “automatically” even if they happen to say “auto”. I have to do something to use them. Some times it even requires reading instructions. I am still learning the blog and ScribeFire instructions so my comments on those will have to wait (at this point I see nothing funny about them!)

This has happened in my life also. I have to use my “Life Book” to get the instructions from God in order to have smoother riding. It does not always mean that I don’t have bumps and hazards in the road, but at least with my owner’s manual at hand I can read about how others have gotten through the rough spots and know that I too can do this. My life is not perfect and I know my bike riding is not (I am a beginner and have lots to learn) and the same will be true of my writings. Anyone who has ever chatted with me already knows that I am a horrible tyipytst.

To make my first post a little more interesting I am including a couple
of photos to spice this up…after all adventure is what makes any ride fun.

Thanks for letting me share!
