I have mentioned a couple of Christmas traditions I have in prior posts, but my favorite of all has to be my Christmas morning ride. As I am sure most of you are aware, the day after Thanksgiving starts the Christmas shopping season. This means one thing to me, lots of traffic. There are several large malls within a five mile perimeter so we get lots of traffic. I have lived in homes that were virtually impossible to get out of the driveway because of the amount of traffic. It makes owning a motorcycle pretty handy.
On Christmas morning the streets are virtually empty and the cops on duty seem to be a little more forgiving, so December 25 is officially my favorite day of the year to go for a ride. My photo of the day for Christmas 2010 is of my Limited parked in front of the Korean Freedom Bell which overlooks the Port of Los Angeles.
