Kickstands and burning pipes

I felt better today than I have all week; my mood was a little brighter today too. I was out sick all day Wednesday and Thursday. I went to work Friday but still wasn't feeling well so I left at noon.

I got the motorcycle out this afternoon and made a loop around the park, went south on Broadway, ate lunch at Sonic, then west past White Fence Farms, north on Kipling, then US6 back into Denver.

The bikes kickstand and I are not best friends. When I put it down It will frequently pop right back up. This afternoon It folded up as I was dismounting. I scrambled to catch the bike as it fell but couldn't hold it and I burned by leg on the hot pipes in the process.

I've lost my temper a couple of times in last few weeks. It is a direct product of the depression and anxiety. I am simply not in any condition to hear or read other peoples politics or their latest good cause of the moment. I think I'll stay off of Facebook for awhile.
