I see a few NEW folks ...
A girlfriend and I went on our first big off road over the weekend. Details here:
I think I prefer riding on gravel roads, but wouldn't mind improving my off road skills a bit.
Way to go Rosie! You gals had a great ride there!
I guess I'm about ready...
Made Blackberry pie and Apple cobbler yesterday ,stuffing today..Cranberrysauce...Do the rest of the food tomorrow...
Have a GREAT day !!!!
Just saw this thread!
I've got some catching up to do!!
Only been riding for a couple years, however, the sport seems to have consumed my life:)
enjoy the ride
Happy Thanksgiving Girls!
Happy Thanksgiving ... Gals !!!
Click here ... Enjoy
Ladies, I don't know which thread to put this on as it really isn't about riding, but at the same time....
Phew, I think it was on the "Single Men for ADV Women" thread that I saw some guy had written about a movie called The Notebook. I'd never seen it, so off I went to the video store and hubby and me just watched it.
Ladies, we can't stop blubbering. That has got to be the most romantic, saddest, happiest love story chick flick I have ever seen. I should stop blubbering after Christmas or so. I feel quite exhausted.
Hey Rosie, Good ride report, looks like you had a good time.
Happy Thanksgiving Darth Peach, nice to see you hear.
Up4thechallenge, motorcycles are addictive. Welcome.
KCDakar and LadyDraco, Happy day after Thanksgiving.
ExtremeVelcro, thanks for the movie recommendation. I'll remember that when I'm in the mood for a Chick Flick.
Rainbow007 and I are just west of Portland, OR for the four day weekend doing some riding. Yesterday it was dirt riding. Today it will be dual sport riding probably over to the ocean.
so....where was that thread for the single men????? not to sound desparate or anything:huh and... the Notebook was very, very good and very, very moving. I LOVED the girls spunky personality and the boys persistance. It was beautiful.
It's well worth a look....there is some good material there one can work with
Well, I went shopping but nothing captured my attention.
My solo adventure running an SS1000
I had originally planed on taking my run in the middle of April, but a good friend of ours had a really bad motorcycle accident
a few days before my departure..
Well being a woman, I elected to wait. I decided on the last Thursday in May...2007
Talked it over with my husband
And he said go for it
I did ask him if he would like to run it with me
He declined as a friend was going to stay with us for a few days
And well someone had to be at the farm to greet him
I packed a small gas can in the trunk
The night before
Don (Hubby) didnt want me to be on the road over night, so a 1000 out and back wasnt going to sit good with him
I looked the route over.. So I thought I would do a turn around
He agreed that was OK with him
. We had done so many high mileage days together, so long hours in the saddle wasnt a problem for me
Plus I had done many runs to visit my folks alone 500 miles away... So the solitude wasnt a problem
Just me my bike & the road
I just wanted to do it myself
. I did have a time frame I wanted to shoot for, other then the 1000 in 24
. I was looking for 1000 in 15
Needless to say I didnt sleep well the night before
Kind of like the night before Christmas as a kid
.Ok so I never grew up
But thats always normal for me..
I was up real early... But it was so foggy that morning I was forced to leave a little later then I wanted
. Oh well best laid plans
But it wasnt that bad just made the other end a little later
So from where we live, it was 14+ miles from my first fuel stop over the mountain and the first dated receipt
. Now its was getting close to 6:15
I told my honey Ill call ya in a few hours
First gas stop was at 6:33 am
I was off n running!!!!
The day turned out to be just great
. Lots of sun but not to hot out
. The next few stops went nice n smooth
All is well then I see way up ahead.. STOPPED traffic!!! Oh crap!!!! Yuppers, was stopped for about 25 mins. A nasty truck accident
. The driver was killed
Hmmm... Maybe it was a good thing I left later then I wanted after all... My mind raced I could have been in the middle of a real bad wreck!!
Well back on the road
.. Bike was running great
. For one that has 100k+ on it
I was really enjoying this run till
. A white pick up truck threw a cup out of the window.. Ok no big deal
. But then they started throwing more trash out the window!!
Now it was becoming a little worrisome to me
As I felt they where trying to hurt me
In traffic! I used my CB and started talking to the truckers that where around me
They saw what was going on and wanted to help
Cool I thought
. Well they boxed the white truck in and I twisted the throttle and nailed it and was out of harms way in a flash
.Dang I love the power of my bike
It was a good size hill that we all were pulling
. But a Valkyrie has a 1520 cc engine with 6 carburetors
And it ran that hill with out worries weaving thru traffic
Sometimes its nice being a female
As I dont think the truckers would have helped that fast if I was a guy
All was good once again
. Made my turn around point in Jackson TN...The time was 1:35 ct
Was right on time too!!! Yeah!!! Called my Hubby to let him know I was on my way home
And doing great
All was going well till I was in Nashville again
Another bad accident!! This time I sat for 54 minutes on the IS with the bike off
. I thought that this is going to hurt my time
But I did hope no one got hurt in this long shut down.
.. I did get to talk to this rider for a bit
I took this photo right before we had come to a full stop
The rest of the afternoon and evening went great
Traffic was moving along well
Talked to a few truckers on the CB, and one was empty and said get right be hind me and Ill plow the road for you
. And man oh man did he
. Ok I know your not really suppose to draft but hey, he knew I was back there
And we hit triple digits YeeHaw !!!
Now that was fun while it lasted
.. Then the hills started once again and I said my see yaws
I pulled out of the line and passed all the trucks
. My stops where still fast..
I would call Don as I was heading to a rest room.. Multi tasking
I pulled into my last stop... Topped off the tank got my receipt.. Call my Honey and told him I was heading over the mountain
My total time was 16h 50 min for 1026 miles
So with the 2 traffic accidents
I missed my personal time
. But all in all it isnt a bad time
To turn in..
I still have all my paper work
Funny I never turned it in
I dont know..
I guess cause I did it for ME
I did get this cool shot .. So I did have fun doing my run..
What a great story Draco!! You're awesome!! And a total stud - way to get it done!!
I'm impressed with enlisting the help of the truckers! Very cool!
Hi Everyone out there! I poke my head in here once in a while and I"m always so impressed with 1.) how many of us are out here, and 2.) how much great support there is in this room!!
I'm in the process of planning a 2 month escape - riding from Washington to Panama and back in March in April. Going solo on the GS! Yippee!! I can't wait!
I hope everyone is enjoying the season!! (Where's the snow??!!)
