MY OH MY....LOOK WHAT TURNED UP WITH SPRING CLEANING!!
YEP.....that's me a long time ago. I was a motor cycle MAMA!!
My beautiful soul mate and I used to ride a Harley. He drove...I rode in the QUEEN SEAT...as he called it. LOL
and I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED every minute of it.
We were careful...wore helmets and all that but we would ride as often as time would allow.
Most of the time they were just short rides on the weekend to go to breakfast or lunch since we were still working.
BUT......we did take one eventful long ride from AZ to Aspen, Colorado and back. We were gone a little over two weeks. Spent nights in little local hotels and were accompanied by some wonderful friends.
These particular friends were experienced riders and had been on many a long trip so they instructed us as to how to pack ...i.e. LIGHT and what to bring.
Now...you must understand....a motor cycle MAMA has to look good; so of course I brought way TOO MANY clothes....and lots of PRETTY EARRINGS!! LOL LOL
My poor honey had to schlep bags of junk every time we settled in for the night....not to mention the additional weight it put on the cycle. Oh....but he was a good sport about it. Did I happen to mention that my packing was somewhat haphazard....so instead of having all my toiletries in one bag...I had them scattered throughout several ...making it necessary to carry in 4 bags instead of one. Oh...and I really ended up wearing pretty much the same 3 or 4 things the entire trip. (O: Our friends tell jokes about how we had to mail our dirty clothes home because there was no room in the duffle bags for anything else.
There was a time or two...I thought he was going to shoot me....but all in all...we had such a wonderful time. I would do it again in a heartbeat....but alas...with a little aging and a few health concerns we have parted with the sweet HARLEY. At the time it was such a grand adventure....little did I know what wonderful memories we were making along the way!
Please tell me....what wonderful memories have you uncovered with YOUR spring cleaning??
