This is the Little Ninja 2 years ago. Note the Sox.
I've had a sticker of a Massachusetts flag on the port side of the Ninja's body for almost three years. I peeled it off today the same way I removed the faded Red Sox sticker a few months ago. My helmet had one of those European-style DOT stickers from College Hype in Adams Village (your source for all Dorchester related merchandise). That came off too. I replaced that sticker with a UN flag. I'm traveling across states as a man without a country, a peacekeeper.
I'll be back in Dorchester towards the end of the month. Starting tomorrow, I'll be describing my motorcycle journey. I'm going to try avoiding the highways once I hit Pennsylvania...I'm avoiding New Jersey. As much as I like the rest areas I don't enjoy the New Jersey Turnpike much. My ETA in New Orleans is May 10; plenty of time to soak up the sights of this great country.
I've dreamed about a trip like this for years. The day will arrive tomorrow.
