Holy shitsnacks, I'm going riding tomorrow!
« on: June 13, 2014, 11:43:33 PM »
So, a million years ago, I used to do a lot of riding with Women on Wheels back before I decided that group rides suck and that riding with some of these women in particular was way more stressful than fun.  However, there was one lady whose company I really enjoyed, but she moved out of state.  Anyway, she's in town this week and I'm going to meet up with her and another friend for a ride tomorrow!  This will only be my fourth ride since last August and my first ride with another person since July 2011.  That was the ride that Peter got hit by a car, so hopefully this ride will be less "interesting". ;)

Anyway, I'm just excited to actually be getting out on the motorcycle.  I'll try to snap a couple of pictures of the clock for y'alls.

Lucky lucky clock.

PS. Pop wheelies, jump curbs and be generally irresponsible.
If it weren't for the therapeutic properties of the occasional off-camber decreasing radius downhill right-hander I'd almost certainly go completely sane.

Woohoo! Don't do anything I wouldn't do.
Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

Sploosh!  :inlove:

Departure time in 45 minutes!  Though I still have to pack kids' lunches, a snack for Peter, stock the kids' diaper bags, eat my own breakfast, go rescue Kira from her crib (I hear her over the monitor now: "MOMMMMY WHERE ARRRRREEEE YOUUUUU?"), make Kira's breakfast, get Alex dressed, give the cat her medication, and get the bike tank bag packed.

It was fun!! Not a super long ride but we had a nice long lunch to catch up.  I've been riding with these ladies for 13 years.  The middle gal moved to Arizona a few years ago and I last rode with her in 2008.  The gal on the right is 70! I hope I'm still riding when I'm 70 (she's on a F800ST, too, not a cruiser/trike/etc).  It was a great time. :inlove:

Glad you had fun! Did you show your friends your new stick-on clock?
