100,000th Kilometers Of Travel
While riding my motorcycle, I can't help but notice my odometer was already reaching its limit in figures or maximum reading. So when the meter reached the 99,999 kilometers mark, I stopped and took a pic of it. And I took another shot as it was about to rollover back to zero again. I wouldn't miss that milestone, since I heard, some motorcycles' odometers become defective before reaching such figure. More, it meant that I already traveled a hundred thousand colorful kilometer experience with my motorcycle.
100,000 kilometers, that's just like circling the earth 2.5 times with my bike. Well, the farthest I've been so far were Valencia City in Bukidnon, Aguacan resort in Maragusan, Toyozu resort in Nabuntutan, and Lake Sebu in South Cotabato. But what mostly consist of my mileage were my daily long distance travels to work. Whew... I already rode that much? No wonder my back is aching already.
It was a rain and shine, smooth and rough, funny and painful travel experience for a couple of years now. I met many accidents along the road, just glad a lot of them did not include me. For those that did, I thank the Lord that they were just minor accidents. Nearly forgot, except one, when I collided with a person driving a bicycle. He suddenly turned left... I stepped and gripped on my brakes, so I was thrown to him... He lost consciousness, nearly lost mine... And we're both brought to the hospital... Long story to detail... Just glad we're both fine... Thank God.
Just had my bike repainted, not in the plan, met an accident, and the insurance covered it... many thanks for that. My odometer had a new start again and begun to roll as I continue in my travels. My prayer is that He protects me from the troubles in my way and He gives me the presence of mind and sense of precaution that others might be protected as well. May Yahweh always bless our way.
