I love this time of year. It is not too hot, not too cold. Basically perfect for riding motorcycles.
Today I had plans to meet my bros at a bar at 11am, and then ride to a Vietnam Veterans event in the Antelope Valley.
Let me add that I have been clean and sober for going on 14 years, so when I go to bars I don’t drink alcohol.
My wife and I got up early. We each had some coffee, suited up for our riding day, put our sun screen on, and then headed out.
It was a beautiful day, with not a cloud in the sky. Literally a perfect motorcycle riding day.
We rode out to the bar where my bro’s were waiting. My wife socialized with some of my bro’s old ladies, while I shot the shit with my bro’s for a while before the ride.
My bro’s invited some guests on the ride to the Vietnam Vet’s event. All of the guests were cool heads, and there were a couple of cool gal’s with them who were riding their own scoots.
One small gal had some pretty high ape hangers. I must say, I was impressed by her riding style. She can put many men to shame with her riding skills.
The gal’s took my wife out to see their motorcycles, and now Liz wants to go take a motorcycle riding course, so I can buy here a Harley Davidson Sportster. I wonder how she got it in her head that I was going to buy here a Sportster.
I must say I have mixed emotions about my old lady riding her own motorcycle. She has totaled at least 3 cars since I have known her. She is not the most careful person I know. I am not sure if she would have the concentration necessary to ride a motorcycle.
One of the guys mentioned to me that his wife was the same way. However, once she got her own bike, she was real careful.
I must admit, it would be kind of cool to have my wife riding next to me. Anyway, we will see. I will let you know if she goes for it. I don’t see any harm in her taking the MSF approved riding course for now.
Hell she was already talking about taking my Electra Glide…. There is a bat’s chance in hell of that happening.
Getting back to the story……..
We all left the bar for the ride to the Vietnam Veteran’s event. The gal with the high ape hangers was riding next to me.
It was not a long ride to the event, but it was a nice ride. We really enjoyed it.
Once at the event, we shook hands all around, had some good barbecue, listened to some good music, and watched the raffle drawings for prizes.
We stayed for a few hours, and then parted ways. My wife and I decided to take a little ride through the Mohave Desert.
Basically it was a great friggen day!
If you do not ride motorcycles, I would not expect you to comprehend in the slightest how a basic day like today, can become a great day, simply by jumping on a motorcycle and riding, but it was.
If you are curious as to what I am talking about, go out and get a motorcycle, and then you too shall see.
Next weekend, some bros and I are probably going to be riding up to Northern California. Hell, maybe I will be writing about a great weekend. We will see.
