for some, it's known as "black friday"... the gluttonous orgy of consumerism that often begins at 3 a.m. with a ceremonial trampling of the Walmart customer service representative unlucky enough to be designated as the official door-opener for the melee. for others, it's simply "buy nothing day".
this year, i would urge all to get out enjoy a nice ride on the bike rather than a stressful day driving around to the various shopping malls, etc. the stuff will all be there a day or two later... what's the big rush? and if the stuff isn't there a day or two later, we probably didn't really need it in the first place, did we?
take time on friday not to be thankful for more stuff, but just simply to be more thankful. we'll see you out on the roads and trails... a couple of things that we all can be thankful for!
