    On The Road Again!

    Sunday DH and I took the motorcycle out. The first time in I don't remember how long. The weather here has been unusually nice and the timing was perfect. We only put on about 100 miles which seems so few when you consider that we (mostly DH) used to put about 10,000 miles a year on the bike. We even got married in July so that we could take a bike trip yearly to celebrate our anniversary. We always had a different destination, usually in mountainous country and would put anywhere from 2,000 to 4,000 miles on in 10-14 days. The longest day we ever did was 750 miles. And if that doesn't sound like very many miles to you, try it sometime. You need 'world class buns' to do it. Awe, those were the good old days. LOL

    This photo is an older one of DH stopping (in the middle of the road) to take in the beauty of the mountains. I was safely off of the road taking the photo.

    Sadly, since we moved to the Houston area we seldom get out on the bike. If it's not the weather, the bugs, the sudden storms; it's the traffic. With 5.8 million people in the Greater Houston Area, people take their lives in their own hands just climbing into a TANK and hitting the roadways. Getting on a motorcycle is just short of suicide! So needless to say, when we ride we stay to country roads, farm to market (FM's) roads, and the like. Luckily it's still very wooded and rural around us, so even though we don't have nice winding, sweeper type roads we can still get away in relatively few miles. Still and at any rate, it was nice to get out for the day together :-)

    Hi Gerry, That has always been my dream. On the backseat of a Harley the route 66 :D)
    I envy you that you and your DH are able to ride a bike. Enjoy it so long as possible!
    Stay 22 ;D))

    That's great. I'm glad you got to go. We always loved riding, but these days we never do any. Which is okay. =) A time for everything.

    Ati, I too would like to ride Route 66. DH's done it lots of times and he says that it's great!

    Mindy, if you got a bike and trailer you could take your moo baby on tour! Huh? Huh?

    Hi Susan! I think the best part was that we spent time together. We get so caught up in "LIFE" that we forget to have fun.

    It always looks like so much fun to see bikers sailing through the air. Keep it up, enjoy sharing the time together.
