Ice is gone
Feels both good and in a way sad when the ice on the lakes are gone, but a new spring is definitely coming.
Got out in this bike that I bought late last autumn just by chance. When this model originally come up at the market in 1984 it was in a period when I moved my interest from bikes to sailing boats and it was nothing I wanted to have.
But it starred with Tom Cruise in Top Gun..
I remember I saw the film alone in a small movie theater in Luleå when it had moved from the big screens. I wanted just to have seen it back in 1986 and it was as I expected filled with so many errors, besides that lump story, my concern was then on flight technicallities and manouvers. I went out and thought that I would newer see another Hollywood film again.. but somehow I did :)
Star in the film was in a way this Kawasaki.. The same model I now have in my hands.
And by chance? I bought at a Second Hand shop this winter a leather jacket quite similar to the one Tom Cruise had in that film and when hurdling out at this curwy way today in that jacket I got this song in my head.. hahaha but I wore a helmet :)
