Almost there!

So last fall she begrudgingly lets me get my first bike (the Dakar in the picture). Then, this summer, she says she wants to go to WestFest with me, but only if we trailer the bike. When we get there, she meets lots of ladies having fun riding! We meet Larry and Tracey from Edmonton. Nanc asks Tracey if Larry could give her a ride on his GS. Tracey gets Nanc suited up and Larry takes her for her first ever motorcycle ride.

Last Saturday, we run into an old work buddy of mine and his wife at a Starbucks. They're out riding his Harley. Nanc asks Norma how she likes riding; Norma replies that she loves it and wants to take the MSF next spring. We get home and Nanc wants me to call my buddy and see if Norma would mind if Nanc took the course with her! Yesterday, my truck was sold and we went out and bought Nanc her own set of gear.

Now I'm looking for a 1150RT or GS so we can ride together! What a wife! I love her!

My wife riding the KVR (Kettle Valley Railroad) fully loaded with her camping gear from today. This is just one shot of our 10 day ride through British Columbia. Stay tuned for a full road report once we are back home.

Hey Rockin' Roland!

Nice to hear from you! Yes, we'll be there, if someone picks up the ball and gets this rolling.

Oh, the story continues...just put a down payment on a R1150RT. Will be flying down to Boise or Twin Falls, ID, ASAP to pick it up. I'll get a pic or two of Nanc on it once we have it home and post them.

Take care friend and see you next summer!
