Today's Motor Ride

A very eventful and interesting day...

DH said I had to set aside an hour for him. I needed to dress in jeans, my heavy shoes, and bring my leather jacket... Hmmmm...? His motor bike is at his friend's right now, so it can't be a bike ride... can it? Well, it was!
Apparently a semi truck full of motorcycles goes across Canada to Harley Davidson Shops to promote their bikes, and people can sign up for a ride on a bike of choice, and wait your turn...
This was our ride! The "Electra Glide Classic"!
That would be me with the bike...Looking like I have a big belly cause I have camera, cellphone, and such in my inside jacket pockets...
Pretty dorky looking hey!?! LOL! 8-)
It was a quick (15 minutes), nice ride, though a bit nerving because DH had never ridden a bike so big before...

Prior to this ride, we took the dogs for a walk, and me a "trip" to the sidewalk. Not fun!
Hurt and scraped up my knee, scraped up my hand, and now my hand and wrist are very sore. Hope I didn't fracture anything... DH managed to grab hold of me on the way down, which I think prevented me from hitting the sidewalk to within an inch of my face. Thank goodness! I would have been a sight!!! 8-/

Oh, and the fur-girls got into 2 fights today. One of them was over this new toy that DD1 brought over last night... and the other, well just because... Bad girls!
That is it for our Sunday!

Glad to see you wear a helmet. Delaware doesn't REQUIRE helmets and I shudder each time I see a motorcyclist on the road without one. *sigh* Sorry you fell when walking the dogs and hope your hand feels better soon.

Cool bike!
I really hope nothing is broken.

Went to Kingston yesterday and passed (well maybe they passed us) a lot of motorcycles. One was really something - a reverse tricycle in design. Two wheels in the front and one in the back. Another guy had a HUGE stuffed toy riding with him. If I get the time, I will download the pics and post.

What a fun Sunday!~ not the tripping part. :( Ouch! Hope it feels better today.

I agree with "call me crazy"'s comment. I have always kinda wanted to ride a bike. The furgirls are at it again, aren't they. They're so human like - I had the same love/hate relationship with my brother.

Myra..I got your xbag on Saturday!!!!!!! it is simply stunnig. My sis will be so jealous. Thank you so much for it and the other beautiful things you sent. As I said on my blog, you are the greatest.....Glad you had a fun day with your hubby. I am sorry but motorcycles are just not my thing. Bad experience with one of my boys when we bought him a motorcycle.....Those fur babies seem to cause you a lot of injuries. You are right..Bad Dogs.

Well, I think you look very cute with your biker outfit. I am kinda afraid of them myself, but our mayor rides one. Better gas mileage.

Sounds like your DH needs to get his own bike up and running again.(the harley looks very impressive btw) You look great in motorgear! Pity there's no pic of helmethair after the ride hahaha!!
Sorry to hear that you hurt yourself; hope it'll heal soon and there's nothing broken expect your pride..)
