My focus and energy is directed towards creating the conditons for things to thrive.
I am an avid motorcyclist, BUT NOT A "BIKER".
I have ridden in a few countries, and I'm pretty picky about who I ride with. To ride with me, you must be helmeted, sensibly attired, and not ride an obnoxious, loud Harley.
I have zero interest in large group rides or Harley style poker runs, Goldwings, or big fat baggers. If you are a rider, I'd love to go on trips where we discover new places together. I am self employed and work a lot, but this affords me a certain amount of freedom if I plan ahead.
My ideal man would be part McGiver, part mechanic, part explorer. They might have a stable of bikes, dirt bikes, vintage models, touring, and dual sport models. Maybe there is a musical instument lashed to the back, but there is certainly a cookstove in the dry bag. C'mon, you know who your are. You've been on the road a long time by yourself or with a wingman, and now you are ready for a female companion who's presence brings comfort to your campsite.
I favor those with genuine intellectual curiosity, and critical thinking skills. I think I could be just as excited about a bicycle trip as a motorcycle trip. I love to move through the landscape any which way.
I am all about having life be a quality experience. Hopefully you share my discriminating palate by rejecting fast food, and you consistantly choose the quality option, whether its a meal,a bike, or a pair of shoes.
The truth is, I am a bit of an introvert. While I am lively in conversation, some part of me keeps me from being fully engaged in crowds.
I have always felt myself to be on the outside of everything, looking in. I am not one for loud self promotion, and I suppose you could say I am a bit reticent in some social situations.
I want to focus my attention on one individual, and create a history of memories that could only have occured with the combination of the two of us.
You are trustworthy and your words and actions are consistent.
I like creative people, who are motivated, disciplined, and do their work whatever it is, with integrity and pride.
Btw, I am not much of a "believer", and have little interest in GOD or organized religion. If I see mention of religion in your profile, you probably will not be hearing from me. I dont just believe religion is the opiate of the masses, I believe it causes more woe than benefit to mankind overall.
That doesnt mean I am amoral or immoral, it simply means that my sense of right and wrong is not dictated by conventional norms.
Update: recently I have come to the conclusion that I am not the city girl I thought I was. Living in the city has left me feeling vulnerable and exposed. I am looking for a new home, beyond the city, beyond the suburbs.
I find I need some open space and nature around me. I like putting out birdfeeders in the winter and seeing who comes to visit. Being able to experience the fullness of the seasons is a priority.
I don't know why this is such a simple thrill, but it is.
I don't like hearing traffic at night, and I'd rather feel isolated than put upon. So much for my recent foray into urban living.
I like things that stimulate my brain and senses, with a strong affinity for whats memorable and that which elicits the wow factor.
Food: just about anything as long as its made from quality ingredients. I like grilling out, happy with organic veggies and a grass fed, grilled beast, wild salmon, morels, anything to do with a coconut, exotic fruits like lychee, mangosteen, fancy citrus, and European chocolate, of course.
Reading:Big fan of the magazine called The Sun, its a collection of poetry and short stories and essays, Roadrunne Magazine, books by Ted Simon.
Movies: Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Cherry Blossoms, anything from director Amoldavar (Talk To her), Taladega Nights, Le Rayon Verte, independent film, also enjoy a daily dose of Stephen Colbert and the Daily Show but little else on tv
You may bring as much baggage as will fit in your tankbag (lol). Prefer someone who has a motorcycle endorsement, but will consider others.
