Biker Girl

All of us are watchers - of television, of time clocks, of traffic on the freeway- but few are observers. Everyone is looking, not many are seeing.

It's spring!!! Finally. Well, hopefully, there have been snow flurries this week around here and I know there have been downright blizzards elsewhere, but by the sunshine streaming in the window I'm calling it spring and I'm going for a ride today!
I finally got my battery for my bike and it is time to ride. Problem is I have 150 mile drive before I can throw a leg over the saddle. This is kind of sad, but my apartment does not have a garage so Dad's is the safest place for my Black Angel.
There is one thing I am very thankful for and it is that Dad did not discriminate. He had always said that if he had boys they would have had Harleys when they turned thirteen; he had girls instead and Sis and I both got them. It is the most freeing experience to be out on the road and the sights seen can blow your mind. Officially, I have owned my bike half my life once my birthday hits in May, but I have not had a chance to log very many miles. Of course, if you look at the number of test rides and Dad's bikes I have become a pretty fair rider. A long way from running circle in the backyard.
So, today will be my first ride of the season!

I envy you, I used to ride on the back of my mates bike I loved it the days before when helmets were not obliatory! Unfortuantly due to ankle issues riding a bike isn't a possibility anymore - have fun and enjoy

I consider myself fortunate to live in a non-mandatory helmet state. ^_^ It's not a case of helmet good or helmet bad, I just don't like to be told what to I can and cannot do when I know the risks.

The ride was great, but I have to do something with my clutch, my hands were killing me and it was a long ride that almost didn't happen! Stupid rain clouds!

Ankle issues?

Ride on! (Pun intended) :)
