Motor riding: First fall, Slippery Surface, Importance of Gear - Gloves

I haven't posted about my "new" motor bike the Honda NXR 125 Red



This post is about gear - gloves and my first fall on a bike (very very minor fall)

So after riding on a slippery basketball surface and even a clayey football field - I RATHER slipped on a very small patch of mud in my office parking lot.



So i was turning at walking pace to observe the reverse parking rule here and "bang!" my bike was low sided (i know this applies to higher speeds).

I broke my right side mirror.



My gloves (Kevlar with armor) took some mud as well.



On hind side - i should never ride through such questionable surfaces and more so try to negotiate a bend.


Please please if you ride do so with gear! and for this purpose GLOVES!

And yes i thank God for all this and His provision for me :-)

Consumed in a vulcano of emotions

i can't take my mind off her

yet she implores me to do so

when i see her i am disarmed - she knows it

what do i do

God help me!

How i thought i ended 2016 - relationship with the opposite gender

On the eve of 31st Dec 2016, i sat on a concrete slab before our watch night service commenced.

I resolved to love, i resolved not to exert myself on people to whom i expressed love yet but rejected it - (wrong move in retrospect)

But guess what, 1st Jan 2017, sitting on the same slab, i reverted when a dear person sat by me and i realised that the "love" i feel for her wasn't one that could be brushed off.

A few days later she (another) hits me up on the phone and i wonder to myself, this is reciprocal and i start wrapping my mind to possibilities again.

Some months i decide to get in touch with her (yet another) and she (yet another) is very happy and expresses profound excitement (i deduced love) to hearing from me.

Anyway 3 months from that day, today, i realize, yes i do love her (placeholder), and that is what it is.

Love is not selfish, et al 1 Cor 13

so here is another resolution - to still love with a non-expectant mind.

Great is God's Faithfulness
