during a break in the rain, i rode the motorcycle over to my parents for dinner. i didn't notice it yesterday - maybe i was just overjoyed to be back on the bike - but the rear brake pedal is set too high. i'm going to have to get back in touch with greater boston motorsports (GBM) to get them to lower it to a more comfortable position. while they're at it, maybe they can also check the rear brake light, which i saw hasn't been going off either. although i can ride again, the angle of my left foot and ankle is in a vulnerable stance so that if i'm not careful, i could possibly aggravate the fracture. i do ride with the ankle brace, which prevents some side to side motion, but also limits my foot from flexing properly so that i can't shift gears as effortlessly as i'd like. returning the bike to the shop might actually give my broken foot some more time to fully heal.
sensing another break in the rain, i made my way home. stopping at the intersection of huron avenue and fresh pond parkway, i noticed a set of keys lying on the pedestrian crosswalk. i getting ready to dismount the bike and retrieve the keys but the light changed to green and i decided against it. whoever dropped those keys (probably a fresh pond jogger or dogwalker) will hopefully retrace his/her steps and find them (hopefully soon, before the keys getting completely run over by all the cars).
back at home, i turned the tv on to more olympics coverage. women's volleyball, men and women swimming, and men gymnastics. i'm still waiting on my opening ceremony download, haven't seen it yet, heard some good things though.
