The Art of Fearlessly Living – Replacing Ruby



2018


I took several rides in 2018 on rented and borrowed motorcycles.  My plan this year was to blog about every ride. However, I found that my experience replacing Ruby has not been what I thought it would be. Replacing Ruby has not been just about replacing my motorcycle it has been about rebuilding my life.

The most important motorcycle event for me of the year did The Shop‘s Santa’s Toy Run benefitting the children of Sunny Slope, AZ took place again this year on the third Saturday of December.

I will be posting a blog real soon about the many lessons I have learned in 2018 while I have been on my Replacing Ruby journey!
