Motorcycle Ride- April of 2014- ManTherapy

Oh how I miss Lucille. She's a 2008 RoadKing Classic.

So this little trip was taken in April of 2014.  It started in Spotsylvania, VA.  I rode out to Culpepper then to Sperryville, VA and went up to Skyline Drive.  I rode Skyline drive all the way up to Front Royal, VA and took 66 East all the way to Washington, D.C.  When I arrived in Washington, D.C. I took the time to wonder around the different memorials.  I’ve lived around Washington, D.C. the majority of my life and I can say that this was the first time that I have ever walked around the memorials by myself.  It was actually quite nice if I recall.  It actually makes me want to go back now that I’m thinking about it.  Shown below is the bike that I rode on.  Lucille.  My Road King Classic.  Oh how I miss Lucille.  I named her after BB Kings guitar.  To me it only seems fitting.  BB King- Road King.  Get it….  I actually sold Lucille on another trip and randomly bought another bike…..and that is another story yet to tell.

A nice old car that drove by. Lots of times people drive their nice cars on Skyline Drive. Skyline drive is a long stretch through the mountains and the speed limit is only 35mph and has amazing views

About Adventures in the Burbs (72 Articles)
I'm now considered a survivor. A survivor of what you may ask? For my entire life I have been a walking time bomb due to a visitor embedded in my brain called an AVM, or an Arteriovenous Malformation. I never actually knew I had it. My story of survival is so improbably and spectacular that it is worthy of an entire book in itself. I may have a post in here somewhere on my blog that covers it. In the end I’ve survived a brain hemorrhage, brain surgery and I’ve been left with Epilepsy and Left Side Neglect. Believe it or not, Left Side Neglect has been nothing less than a fascinating experience although I don’t recommend it for the feeble or weak minded. In the end that time bomb exploded yet I’m still here to put my adventures up on this blog and I will never let my survivor experience hold me back from life. Although I’m now considered a “Survivor”, throughout life I have been many things and it seems I have assumed many different identities along the way. For me life has been a zigzagging adventure woven with change and that change has always been good. I’m truly blessed as my life has been nothing short of amazing and my cup has always been overflowing even in the worst of times. I’ve had a good family, good friends, excellent mentors along the way and an amazing wife. Wonder if she will actually ever read this?? I’ve been a musician, a dishwasher, a pizza maker, a break-dancer, a skateboarder, a long haired metal head, a United States Marine, a husband, a father to many, a technologist, a college student, an adventure racer, a businessman, a manager, a leader, a crisis manager, a Harley Davidson enthusiast, a wannabe bourbon connoisseur, an amateur RV’er, an amateur blogger, an amateur writer, an amateur photographer, a thinker, a doer, a traveler, a wannabe digital nomad, an adventurer, and a remote worker. So as you can see I’ve maintained just a few identities….but what’s in an identity anyway. I know my identity as a “survivor” will not sum up my existence nor define me as a person. My name is Will and I am all of those identities listed above and then some. Hopefully you will join me on my journey. Do take Care, Will
