A few quick links for winter reading

A few quick thoughts to pass along:

I wanted to be sure to share a link I found recently – the photo at left probably shows that I haven’t really learned the proper technique, but the link is a humorous and instructional article about the best way to tie a doo-rag out of a bandana. The photo also shows that I look better with glasses than without, unlike most people.

As predicted, I’m hearing more rumblings that suggest our state legislature will be pursuing a mandatory helmet law this year. It frankly pisses me off considerably – I am simply trusting that ABATE will fend off the nannies for us again.

This site was recently included in a list of motorcycle-related blogs in an article at FindingDulcinea.com, an internet-based library of resources on a wide variety of topics. A happy little blurb about BCN suggested that it’s “regularly updated,” which prompted me to get in here and write an update.  

Late last year I had a lot of trouble with the files that create the color scheme and layout of this site, and I lost the file that contained links to other biker chick blogs. I’m working now on rebuilding that list, and happily found a new blog to add to it. Please take some time to check out Karen’s Riders on Adventure site, and look for the full list of biker chick bloggers coming back very soon! (Update: I’ve restored the Biker Chick Blogroll and have added several new sites! Check them out below right!)

Finally, here’s a cool story about a 70-year-old woman in Florida who’s embarking on a four-month motorcycle tour to promote awareness about breast-cancer screenings.  The self-proclaimed “Vagabond Granny” will travel 8,000 miles across the United States on her 1996 Yamaha Royal Star. Her trip is sponsored by the United Breast Cancer Foundation in New York.

      Hi Janet,

      Thanks for dropping by and leaving a comment. I love your blog and have a link to you. I REALLY enjoyed reading how to tie a doo rag. I will have to try it. I hate helmet hair after riding and that will hide it nicely, lol.

      Happy Riding,
      Betty :)

      Hi Janet thanks for visiting my blog and commenting… I added you to my MC links and to my feed. I’m going to spend some time this weekend reading through your archives and check out your photo galleries… you have a great site!

      I had no idea that there was a proper way to tie a doo-rag… I’ll have to pass that link along to my husband.

      Take care ;) Jovi

      Jovi, thanks so much for reading – glad you’re here! Glad the doo-rag article was helpful, I’m like you – didn’t know the “secret” to doing it right til I read that article! ~ Janet
