Lazy weekend

The weather guessers said 60% chance of rain Saturday and Sunday. I saw no rain on Saturday and totally missed out on some riding because of it. I got really bored around 3pm and decided I was going to ride regardless what they were saying. As soon as I started my bike my son came running down the stairs and bolted out the door.
Dad, Dad where are you going? he asked.
Dun’no, just need to ride.
Can I go too?
Sure, but we might get wet.
So.
Ok grab your helmet.
And we were off headed nowhere special. Found only one new road that looked interesting, but it wasn’t. We rode for about an hour and I could tell he was getting fidgety. So I headed on home. No pictures, just long lasting memories. We never did hit any rain. Sunday it rained it’s ass off and I sat at home and watched Lord Of the Ring, all three of them.
Next weekend is Hawgs of Texas rally. Can’t wait!!

What a great feeling

Sunday I cleaned my bike, had to be done after Saturday’s ride. I removed the windshield as I have done several times, but this time I didn’t put it back on. After I finished cleaning, I jumped on for a quick ride. IT FELT GREAT to ride like this again. It brought me back to when I was first riding. Had totally forgot how good if feels. I don’t know how long I will leave it off though one thing is for sure it will come off more often. Maybe I will remove it for my work day rides and reinstall it for the weekend rides. Some of these Texas bugs are so big you could ride’em. Which is why I installed a windshield to begin with. The last time I rode some of our country back roads, I got nail three times on my face in the same spot. Had a welt the size of a fist. Lol

Anyhow I highly recommend removing your windshield from time to time. Give it a try you might just like it.

Meetup.com

We meet a lot new peps today. There was over 30 riders today, and unfortunately I didn't get to meet all of them. Had an excellent time, I always want to ride in a large group. I can say I did it but I'm not sure if I will do it again. I spent most of my time watching the bikes in front and behind me making sure I wouldn't get in to trouble. The stops were good and I could relax.

The forecast stated no rain and in the upper 70's. Yeah right. Started off cold and wet and never completely dried out even after the sun came out. Last thing I said to my wife "leave your rain gear, we won't need it". I'll never tell her that again....
Good thing I had mine. lol

Catching-up a little

Riding season is in full swing here. I haven’t had the chance to ride much way too much stuff going on. A side from riding to work I have only been on one ride thus far. It was a good ride with good friends, took me too few places I hadn’t been. So that was cool. I am REALLY looking forward to this weekend. I joined a group of fellow riders from meetup.com. This will be the first of what I hope to be many rides with them. I will let you know how it goes.

Last weekend we took Brooke to gather up Easter-eggs. She wasn’t sure what to do and only got 2 eggs and one was given to her. Maybe she will do better next year. We had to get her glasses because of a lazy eye and it’s been very hard keeping them on her. So we had to add another nickname to her already long list of names, Nerdy baby. Some of her others are, but not limited to Harley baby, Harley girl, Carrot top, Strawberry and too many to list.



The blue Bonnets are blooming so we took all the kids to see them and take pictures.






Work is picking-up big time and of course that’s good. Just hope they will start giving us our bonuses again.

My knee doesn’t seem to be getting much better so I may have to have surgery...again.

Please continue to pray for our troops.
