8 minutes of fine production that make Indianapolis look like a city I've never seen before, other than recognizable buildings.


By coincidence,I had just clicked on the bicycle option on Google Maps for Indianapolis the other day. It lit up quite nicely!

Marker 'B' is my house, and just north north west of there, near where it says "Park" for Skiles Test Public Park (yes, Skiles Test was a guy's name!) there is a bridge crossing a large creek. That is closed for the summer while they alter it for a bicycle lane which will connect that big wooded area to the east (Fort Harrison State Park, formerly U.S. Army Ft. Harrison, where everybody went the speed limit!) with the trail that follows Fall Creek to the SW.


It's going to be a busy summer.

I shudder to calculate how much motorcycling takes off your life span.

It depends on where you ride said motorcycle. If out in the country or up in the mountains on a nice day with not much traffic, it adds to your lifespan due to induced serenity. Let's say, each hour on the MC in these conditions adds 20 minutes. So, enough of this sort of riding and you will be immortal.

If in traffic with lots of cagers, each hour on the MC is probably comparable to 2 hours in a cage. Still better than being in a cage in other words.
