The ride.....


Yesterday my hubby and I got to run errands on the motorcycle....it was a nice day...
I've noticed when we are out riding how many smiles and waves we get....sometimes...

I feel like we are in a parade...and it makes us smile....we get the nod from the senior citizen man...you can see maybe he has rode motorcycles in his life....the little boys look at you with excitement in their eyes...even little girls take a second look...other bikers give you a wave...or a peace sign....we had a guy roll down his window and tell us what a cool ride we had.....I never in a million years thought I would enjoy riding on the back of a motorcycle...especially on the streets with cars and trucks....but there is something so freeing about it....so enjoyable.....riding on the dirt and through the trails is fun also....and the people that ride there are friendly also...you stop and chit chat...then hit the trails again....there is a group of young adults 16-22 that ride...and they seem to really enjoy stopping and talking with us....there are families that ride together...so now you see why I don't like the rainy weather....it really puts a damper on our rides.....so if you ever get the chance to go for a ride....hop on and enjoy.....but wear a helmet and protective clothing....you see I do still have some sense....LOL

Oh, Deb. You are so right! Long ago, I rode with the significant other in my life at the time. It is so fun to wave and get waves and nods... especially from other folks on motorcycles. It is fun to be in the wind! Here's to some beautiful, sunny weather for you to soar!

Thanks for your comment - much appreciated.
Friends of ours, in the sixties, go 'out and about' often on the motorbike. She, at one time, said she would NEVER get on the back ... but now loves it! They belong to a motorbike club exclusive to the older person and either go for shorter rides or longer ones to beautiful parts of our country. Helmets are compulsory here.

Oh Deb, what a cute picture. And I want a parade when I do errands... You definitely deserve a parade.

Riding on motorcycles is fun. When I was a kid we had a small trail bike and I loved riding it.

You are so much braver than me! But I'm so glad for you that you have fun!
