Such a Fantastic Idea..

In my last post, mentioned the fact that my computer had crashed and had taken it to see if repair was an option or at least save the data stored on it. The good and the bad. The bad part was the computer was really old anyway and there was absolutely nothing to be done to save it. Hard drive had multiple issues. Good news is the “I Fix Computers” shop in DeFuniak Springs, Florida was able to recover ALL data on the old hard drive. šŸ™‚

Happy is an understatement, feared that all was lost permanently. Photo’s, videos, records stored in the document section plus lots of other things that were important to me since I do lots of things online now and in the past. By the way, that’s a great place to take your computer if you have issues, really know their business.

Ended up buying a computer from them, they transferred all data from the broken one, placed it in one single folder on the new computer. No charge for the transfer since I was purchasing the computer from them. Was easy to pick and choose what was to be retained and trash anything that was not necessary. Sorta like getting a chance to clean up your computer, which I would bet no one really takes the time to do. šŸ™‚ By the way, videos use us a TON of space on hard drives.

While deleting some of the no longer needed videos to make more space on the new computer, accidentally deleted ALL videos. That really hurt my feelings, mostly for being so stupid as to pull a stunt like that. LOL There was only a few that really needed to be saved but oh well, we live and die with our mistakes.

Let’s get back to my FANTASTIC idea! You remember on the 17th (see last post) it was such a beautiful day, great day for a ride and I thoroughly enjoyed getting back out on the road. So on Monday the 19th when the call came to pick up my new computer the thought hit me that another beautiful day to ride. DeFuniak Springs is only about twenty five miles or so from my house. Plus I have a nice laptop case that fits perfectly on the rear seat of my motorcycle and a way to strap it down securely so why not ride the Suzuki to make this pick up?

Just me looking for every excuse to ride. šŸ™‚

Checked the weather of course as usual before riding, chances for rain in the time period I needed to make the trip were very slim, actually less chance than the 17th when we had that most beautiful day. Even checked the radar a few times and there was absolutely no reason not to ride that day. Possible rain much later in the afternoon as usual but would be back long before that was suppose to happen. Rode down, picked up the computer and on my way back….. hard to describe, video below will totally explain. Be sure to watch it on YouTube full screen and turn up the volume. A great day it was and such a fantastic idea to ride the motorcycle!

Liquid Sunshine

Now I’m guessing that AccuWeather really blew this one or that’s just liquid sunshine and I don’t know the difference?

Let me say that I’ve been rained on before and gotten pretty wet, BUT never have I been this WET in my entire life. When I say there was not one dry spot on me, that’s no joke. Won’t go into details here, but there was NOT a single dry spot anywhere on my body! When I finally got home, parked under the carport, stepped off the bike it created a huge dripping puddle all around my feet. Removed all wet clothing on the carport, threw clothes in the washer and realized paperwork that I had stuck in my pockets was, lets just say spongy at best. šŸ™‚ Good thing the computer bag was water proof other wise my new computer might not have survived.

The trip down was a bit dryer, certainly more manageable as seen in the video below. This light rain started when I was about half way to DeFuniak Springs. Video below is last part of the trip there and arriving at I FIX COMPUTERS. Maybe I should get some rain gear to pack in my saddle bags and start loving to ride in the rain? NOT!

That’s the end to this episode, everything dried out, computer works great and I’m ready to ride again. In fact next post you might find really interesting. Be sure to stay tuned.
