Welcome to my blog. As a bit of a background ~ I am a middle aged woman who lives on Vancouver Island, Canada. But first and foremost, I am a motorcycle enthusiast. Here on the coast, even though we are Canadian, there is an opportunity to ride all year round (although some days during the winter are "iffy"). I used to ride a relatively 'small' cruiser as defined in today's market - a Canadian Anniversary Edition 2008 Vstar 650 Silverado which was a bike I truly fell in love with. Although it was a smaller bike, to be honest I'm a smaller woman. I stand 5' 2" in my stocking feet and only have a 27" inseam, which rules out quite a few of the bikes out there.
In 2013 I had the opportunity to upgrade to a monster cruiser - a 2009 Harley Davidson Electra Glide Classic and now, my new steed is a 2016 Harley Davidson Heritage Soft tail.
Anyways - as we travel along this road we call life I'll reveal a bit more about myself (at some points it might prove to be too much).
Come along with me.
An alphabet challenge is when (according to the rules of THIS challenge ) a rider needs to take a picture of their bike and themselves in front of a town/village starting with the letter of the alphabet. And here we go …..
Since 2020 hasn’t been much of a ride year to date, I decided to revisit some rode events from 2019.
2019 saw me taking part in a local Motorcycle dealerships contest. The contest was to complete a number of challenges and getting points towards the grand prize. Some of the challenges were quite interesting and it took me on roads that I’ve never gone to before. Other challenges have the rider doing fun (aka strange and kooky) things. For example, most cities have fast food places that have drive-thru options. Why not take your motorcycle through the drive-through?
Yesterday saw a quick blast out and around the valley. Not a cloud in the sky in the morning, but the afternoon saw some high overhead heat cloud cover. The breeze was still cool though making it perfect riding weather.
