Solstice/equinox rituals?

The place to come if you've been with us for years or it's your first time here. General yakking about anything motorcycle related. Think of it as the internet coffeehouse for the UTMC.

No, not really. Not even close.


But the road soaked in a 1/2 liter of Augustinerbräu during a respite inthe goddam Pineapple Express Pacific storm pummeling us for the last week (also, no looney eclipse in SoCal :( )


Stop huffing shit, Middie. Your shit, pigshit, Buckeye shit, nothing.

Great timing. Equinox. :roll: What do the heavens know, anyway?

Haven't been on the bike since June, don't expect to be on the bike until next year. I'll be on the first day of a rainy 50 mile solo backpacking trip. I'm only carrying 8 ounces of Lagavulin 16 year old scotch to soothe the soul, and I'm not sharing... gods be damned.

On second thought... you want another year like 2009? Wasn't that the year everybody crashed? You better spare some scotchy-y scotch scotch.


Fine, I'll pour an effing beer on the road, in the middle of the night, in my underwear. Just like I did every other time (thought I'd only been hitting the solstices)

Ahh, necrothread. :shock:

Anywho, only ritual I had was when I was a kid, we'd balance eggs on end. Axis of the earth was funky during the equinox and you could do that shit. It'd stay upright for about 4 days, or until momma got pissed. What ever came first.

OK, so there's some confusion over when exactly this year's Solstice starts. Here's the dope:
It's Dec. 22, 05:30 UTC

For you on the East Coast that translates to:
Dec. 22, 12:30 a.m. If you're Golgo or X, it's also Dec. 22

If you're CST, then it's 11:30 p.m. Dec. 21.
West Coast it's 9:30 pm.

If you're Jonny down in Oz, it's a Summer Solstice, and being Australians it was probably something like last Friday at breakfast time. :roll:

I'll try to sleep as long as a can tonight and I'm riding to the book-store tomorrow, does that count as a ritual ?
Due to our local climate, I'm much more inclined to summer rituals.

No. For you, it's early morning Thursday, so you can dump the Chimay any time Thursday.

For bookophiles, I guess so. But the Road Gods don't appreciate the significance, you weenie.

Fine. Whatever. You can whine about that another day. Just be sure to offer some beer, especially this year, since your fellow Euro Golgo may not be able to be wheeled to the street to personally give thanks for not being dead. I hope a little trip to road for his sake doesn't inconvenience you any.

I'm offering a German brew myself (Hacker-Pschorr 1417), in honor of our boy, who got the most fucked up by a cage than any of us, and survived. Für Brüder Golgo!

248,9km worth of gasoline were donated to the road gods. The ancient ceremony of watering mother earth and blowing with the wind (aka peepee behind a tree) took place on an isolated road in the countryside. I turned back when I reached places with lots of snow on the side of the road, about where I lost all feelings in my toes.
The light was strange, not really daylight, not night, like the light during a full solar eclipse, brownish yellow. Or maybe it was all the truck poopoo on my helmet visor. Today is a day of social protestation so there are no public transport on the road, but lots of people who usually do not drive during the week or in city traffic. The feeling of being invisible but in danger was constant. Roads were greasy muddy and wet. salemen prick in audi's were avoided with elegance.

Thank you Zer0, it was exactly what I needed.
I have an appointment now but in a couple of hours, I'll surrender to the sacred drinking of the 8% Malmedy brown beer, in expectation of the also sacred headache of the next morning.

Happy light renewal everyone.

Kind of missed the actual date due to my 86 year old aunt having a stroke four days ago. She has no children and is a widow so the mrs. and me are her caretakers. Now it's back and forth to the hospital while making plans for the unknown.
Now, there's the issue of a post about a year ago. Something to do with me huffing the aroma of my own shit in honor of the Solstice and Jaeger. My attempt at strange humor is really fucked up sometimes. Sorry. So today as a late step in addressing this year's Solstice, some beer on the road with a day before Christmas ride is more in tune with sobriety.
Best wishes to you folks for a rewarding 2012.

Jaeger... note to myself... "let it ferment first", most excellent. Like a fine wine, time does wonders. How's the little Jaeger doing away ways? Not heard much. Paper trained yet?
