Bits ‘n pieces

Been taking some time to apply for new jobs this week and today I realized it had been a LONG time since I blogged about anything! Then I actually peeked in here, and to my relief discovered it had only been a week. It sure FELT like a lot longer than that! Anyway, just a few notes to share:

First, I took Kitten (plus hubby and his bike – LOL) out to a long-standing bike night event last Thursday and had a neat experience: we were standing at the bikes and a man came up who I didn’t know and said, pointing to Kitten, “So is this the new Dyna?” When I said yes it sure is, he told me his name was Tim and that he is a big fan of the blog. I always get a kick out of being “recognized” from the blog – it has happened maybe four or five times over the past few years. It’s an absolute delight to meet people who read and enjoy what I post here, and learn more about their motorcycling adventures! So I wanted to be sure to say THANKS to Tim for introducing himself and making my day with a very nice compliment!

Also, I sure hope you aren’t getting sick of me linking out to Chessie’s blog yet – I just think she writes the very best “make you wanna be there/ride that” ride reports, and always has stunning photos to go along with the wonderful stories. Here’s the latest, a VERY inviting write-up about a leisurely trip along NC state road 209.

Finally, Friday May 7 is International Female Ride Day – so, as I’ve said before, if you are a woman who rides her own, get out there and make a spectacle of yourself! (I’m not sure I will have a chance to ride, but maybe I can at least pull Kitten out of the garage and clean her up a bit!) Be sure to leave a note in the comments and tell us if you plan to ride, and where!

    1. That’s cool that you met another reader! Chessie does have a really great blog. I love her photos.

      I sat on Sadie on May 7…does that count! LOL Can’t wait to ride with you. I’ll be ready before the end of the season. I’m feeling more and more confident each time I’m on her. :) I have to say it feels really good not being on the back.

      Hi – I just found your site and thought I’d tell you about my trip for International Female Ride Day. I had a blast with the Motor Maids up in Calais, ME! We had a flag exchange with the Canadian Motor Maids which included lots of great riding and time to eat, drink and be merry! It was my first Motor Maid trip, and now I totally get it!!! It was certainly challenging for me… I’ve only been riding just over a year… and we had rain, sleet, lots of highway riding, and more, more, more rain. But I feel like I can ride anywhere now… They are a great bunch of women with awesome riding skills who are happy to help and mentor the newer riders. Check it out!!! I’ll be keeping an eye on this blog and hope to hear lots of women rider stories!

    3. Weird…i commented the other day but it didn’t work! It’s so cool that you got recognized again!!!! Like the PIX of you next to Kitten!!! :) Thanks for the shout out a couple posts back! Hope to see you on the road very soon. This weather hasn’t been too good for getting used to my ride. It will happen soon though and I’ll be cruising with all the other chick riders out there!!! YAY!
