Well, today is the day, my Husband and I are going to go and pick up my Harley Nightster bike at the town across the river.  It is a 1200 cc.  It is a smaller bike, just the right size for a woman of my 5'2" height.  I can sit perfectly and comfortably on it, and I can't wait!!!  The colour is black with orange and it looks wicked.  He is going to ride it home, I will drive the car, wishing it was me on that bike instead of him.  I will get some nice pictures when all is said and done.

I am not new to riding a bike, it just has been a long time since I drove.  I passed my learners test (I only had a learners then, so many years ago when I rode) on Thursday, and am ready to hit the road with my Husband, he on his Harley Fatboy, and me on my Nightster.  Oh yes, those days of my long blonde hair, flying in the sun.....

I have been yearning to have my own bike for years, and it finally has come to pass, this is my lucky day.

We ordered this bike last fall, for some reason Canada has only had a very few brought in.  I am lucky that I even got this bike because there just isn't enough to go around.  This bike was an order that someone had made and then didn't want it, lucky for me.  I don't know why they make so few of some things sometime, the demand is there, just not the supply.  Beautiful and most wonderful day in this great life.  Cindi

 Smiley Motorcycle with wind in your face. What a beautiful way to spend a beautiful day.
My husband and I have a Goldwing. We love it. I want one so bad but I cannot hold one up due to my knees.  So What I want is a Trike. Pearl white.

Enjoy riding with your hubby.   Kiss

Cindi, it is not unusual in the states here to wait a very long time to get your Harley. I've never owned a Harley but I've ridden with Harley owners and they attest "the wait" is severe in most cases. It is expected for one to wait an average of a yr, but 2 yrs is not uncommon. Used is a different story.

I miss riding and I think if we do get another, one day, it will be a trike. My last bike was a Honda, Valkyrie. Wouldn't mind a Valkyrie Trike.

Congratulations, happy riding, and be careful out there.
Remember, other people usually don't know how to act when you're on the road with a bike, they get just plain stupid.

Be as VISIBLE as you can, btw, Whoppo says he will be a good boy if you'll take him riding with you. Wink grin

I had a gorgeous 1989 FXRS, I truly regret selling that bike.  I still have my license, maybe someday I'll be in the wind again......

I would love to have a bike, but every time I start thinking about it, someone that I know has a serious accident. I don't know if I'm jinxing them or if they're warning me, but...

Plus, my wife would kill me if the bike (or some idiot driver yakking on the cell phone and not paying attention) didn't.

Sharon, cool that you picked up on that part of my original post.  One of my favourite songs.

I had to laugh at my Husband when we picked up the bike.  I told you that he drove it home.  Boy did he look funny.  He is tall, 6'2" and has the longest legs.  When he sat on the bike his knees were all bent, when he stood up he had at least 12 inches of clearance between his butt and the seat.  That is a very short bike, hee, hee.

When he drove it away, I watched him and he looked even more funny. Picture this tall man on a short bike.  His knees were all bent up when he was riding it and it looked like his knees were up around his ears, oh what a sight that was, and it made me laugh.  We took our separate journeys home.  We had to cross a small ferry and of course the bikes get to go on, even if it is too full to have another car onboard.  Our choice was to meet at home.  He arrived home about an hour before I did, as I had to wait for three ferries.  This little ferry on holds about 25 cars and there is always alot of cars coming from one side of the river to the other.  Thank goodness they are in the process of building an enormous bridge, this has been long overdue, well, since the beginning of time itself I would imagine, hee, hee.

Since we brought the bike home the weather has not been conducive to riding, so I still haven't gone out yet, wah, that bugs me, I wanna get on the road.

This is the bike, and yep, it is very visible on the road, it is very, very orange.  A little too much orange for my liking, gonna have some air brushing done to it sooner or later.  AND....my Son-in-Law has already began plans to change the pipes to make them a little bit louder.  Eeeks!!!  He knows I don't want it too loud, but he has his ways.....him and other other Son-in-Law have surprised my Husband by doing some of the most beautiful altering of his bike too over the years.  What a team those two other loves of my life have done.  I am a fortunate woman to have so many wonderful men in my life.  I am grateful every day for them all.....have that most beautiful and wonderful day, loving this life we live.  Cindi

My bike, note the bent up legs, and look of utter exasperation and frustration of riding a bike too small on his face, I can just picture what he is saying.  When he got to the ferry, there was another guy on a big bike, a Honda Goldwing or something like that, and just looked at my big Husband on this teeny, tiny bike and smiled at him.  My Husband got embarassed and told him that it was his wifes, he has just picked it up, and his was a Fatboy -- the guy smiled and told him he knew what he meant.  Oh brother......wonder if the guy believed him or not, hee, hee......



An older picture of my Husband on the left on his Fatboy and one of my Son-in-Laws on the right on another bike.  Note the unbent legs, how they should fit on a bike, hee, hee!!!

Hee hee!!  I love when the guys have "that look"!  I like the orange, it is bright & easier for idiots to see while you are riding!  Always the mother..Safety first!  It's supposed to get into the 80's at the end of the week here so should be nice there too, you will have the weather to try out your new ride!  Jody

That stuff on the bike was from a tornado that Katrina made.

Sharon, yep, get those pictures, wanna see ya puttin' around, hee, hee, so much fun.

Jody, what I do like about the colour is, yes, very visible, and yes, you need to be that way when riding with all the others that are bad drivers, hee, hee.

JP, I remember you speaking before of losing your bike to the tornado in other posts.  That was a terrible thing that travesty to the areas, and so sad that your bike got all messed up.  It looks like it must have been a real beauty, so sad.  Beautiful day and love our life and live it like there was no tomorrow.  Cindi
