We rode to the Seacoast North Hampton, NH dealer and back so I got 25 miles today. I could not get my back-rest back on the bike. Had to get a new spring for it. The spring on it was bent and not allowing the back-rest to drop into place. Works now.

I rode briefly yesterday - all of 18 miles on my 2008 Ultra Classic Anniversary model. I had my seat repaired. It had a tear along one of the seams. So now it has some new vinyl and stitching and makes it look so much better.

hE had his MRI Monday, picked up the dvd today and see the dr who did the surgery
tomorrow. We are mainly curious as to what he is going to say.

The cardiologist had put him on Neurontin for the pain, but it did not help the pain, only
makes him sleepy, so he is quitting that.....he said he is so groggy when he gets up it
feels unsafe.

And lastly, the dealer came and picked up the bikes today. I am relieved but I still cried
when they left.....we have talked about it and decided that when he gets to feeling better
we would go look at a trike.

I think his dr. damaged a nerve the way he describes the pain. Now he cannot
drive because he is on a medication that makes him go to sleep ... he said it
does help him sleep, so I guess I can drive him around...LOL

he is getting an MRI Monday....but I am hoping he does not mention surgery because
he is just not bouncing back.

RE, I am certainly happy for you. I think if I had a 1200 that was lighter I would be happier
but if he can't ride I feel bad going by myself.

Yes. Yes! A ride is a ride and we did ride today, Friday - maybe all of 35 miles. Been riding my 1993 Ultra Classic Anniversary. It has almost 94,000 miles on the odometer. And it just sounds good.

I am having my seat on the 2008 Ultra Classic Anniversary recovered. It had a tear along one of the seams.

We are waiting to hear from the dr. about a possible new surgery for David's shoulder
because it is getting worse instead of better...

I am glad someone is getting to ride even if it is a short sortie...

I did ride today, Thursday, 6 August - albeit only about nine miles and then I will have a return ride back home.

Good to hear that the weather for KIM was good for her ride to and while in Sturgis.

Tats are not my cup of tea either....

We called the dealer today to see about getting some help with selling
the bikes. David has to go back to the dr. tomorrow to get set up with
an MRI or Ct scan on his arm....it is still giving him fits. Praying they
can take them. The license stickers will cost us almost $300 and if we
can sell them before the end of the month, that will be a big break.Not
to mention we won't have to make the payments....

believe it or not, it was absolutely family friendly. The "real" week is this week. We went a week early on purpose. We wanted to enjoy it and not worry. I think Sturgis is getting a God smack right now. The week we were there,the weather was PERFECT! I mean just picture perfect. It is one of the prettiest states I have been to. As soon as we left, they got bombarded with rain. Today they got rain and hail. Flooded the Full Throttle saloon. People posted pics of it. I could not believe how terrible. It looks like about 9 inches of standing water in it! I was JUST there!

David has been too Sturgis....he used to live not far from it. He said that it is way too
dangerous for the average person with Hells Angels and other groups there unless you
live that lifestyle....

Glad you got a ride in Gloria.

Finally I rode today, only about 100 kicks but still. It's been over 2 years I think. What really bugs me is my jacket won't fit so today I just went jacket free - dumb but at least I was out there. Any didn't eat a thing - right or wrong -while I was on the rode.

To anyone else who rode today, southwestern Ontario was beautiful - raining now though.

Great suggestions- thanks. Today wasn't too bad - not perfect - but at least a start. I saved the 30 day healthy habits calendar from some time ago and it's a nice easy start too. Will keep in touch.

HEY Gloria,

If you like veggies, walmart has baby cukes which are good to nibble, also, don't know
if you like tomatoes or not, but they have the quarter size Yellow tomatoes, little fellers
but boy they taste really good and you can have like a whole cup for next to no calories,
and they are just so good. I also like raw and cooked cauliflower.....and you can make
soup with chicken broth and just throw whatever spices you like and all the veggies you
like....that is something you can eat lots of whenever the tummy calls for food....I chop
cabbage, cauliflower, carrots, zucchini, celery, peppers, whatever I can find....

And if you drink soda, stop.....the sodium in them makes your body retain water, and diet
soda is the worst....try to get at least 8 cups of water a day....to make it better you can slice lemon and put in you a pitcher in the fridge, then you got tasty water all day long....

Hang in there....I know it is not easy, but when your health is on the line, it is worth the
fight.

There were sure a lot of bikes out today. There were some towing trailers so there are
a lot of people traveling for sure.

With your boots on Kim I don't think you will have any trouble...but I would go with a
lighter bike....that is what I am sorry the most for....getting the softail which is too heavy....
David kept saying it was not heavy when I was riding, but maneuvering it around in a
tight space is very difficult....

The guy who does the safety riding videos wife is 4'10 and she rides the big bikes.
I am sure if she ever lays it down others would pick her up...she is like 100 lbs sopping wet.

When you begin, ride what is comfortable for you, and later you can move on..
I got an email from our dealer today that there is now a slim and low Softail....from experience here, I would not get a really heavy bike and if I had it to do over would have
kept my 1200 Low....the weight was better and I could manhandle it around easier...altho
I know loads of ladies older than I who ride bigger bikes and some ride smaller and some ride
three wheels....don't ever let someone talk you into a bigger bike when you don't want to change up....only when you are ready.....so I am only an inch taller than you are...the newer
bikes are lower in the sportys tho...

You'll always be who you've always been!!!!!!

we use to have a Sporty. Much too high for me still. I don't know if I am longer waisted but it doesn't seem so. I would have to wear at least 2 inch heels and I don't think that would work for safety reasons! I know there are shorter people than me who ride so it must be possible. The guy at the Harley store told me it could be done. If I ever ride, it will be the one we have now the Switchback. He will get something different. He recently said he liked Road Kings which I hadn't heard that from him before! Who know! He is flaky sometimes!

There is a 883-L sporty and a 1200-L that are slimmer and lower....

When they were handing out height I thought they said something else so I stepped
aside, Kim, I am 5.3......a pair of shorties....with my riding boots on, I can reach the
ground on the softail with no problem, but I am on the toes if I don't have the boots....

And before you holler, I only sit on it and move it now and then, never ride in anything
but boots and safety clothes...leathers..

You'll always be who you've always been!!!!!!

I am glad you guys are getting to ride. I think David has finally made up his mind
to sell the Heritage and the Softail and either get lighter bikes or a 3 wheeler...

Glad you got the ride and the lunch...

I always wear mine. David said he got it for me to wear and him to enjoy...lol

I keep mine in the boxes and cool, if they are in sunlight or bright light they lose their
scent.....I have one bottle of Glorious that I have had for ages and it still smells as fresh
as when I bought it.....

I got a Fossil, the one I have been carrying is darker brown leather, and this one is
more like medium color, caramel color....
I like shoulder bags, these can be carried like on a shoulder or a cross-body bag if
I need both hands free.
David had some coupons for $10 each off, and because they had sent me a 25% off
coupon with no restrictions on Brand-name, so I got 25% off plus the 20 bucks off....

(The company has a policy that you get points for your buying items from them, and
he bought me a Vitamix blender hence the $20 reward coupons)

I think I did make out like a bandit with all the goodies he got me....lol

Speaking of blush, I have a Jessica Simpson bag I got last year for buying her perfume,
in blush, but I don't ever carry it because it isn't a shoulder bag...

He took me shopping last Saturday and had me pick out a purse I liked,
we had some special coupons for my birthday from the company, here
it is Belks, about the same thing as a Macys or Dillards...although we do
have a Dillards down in Oxford which is about 30 miles away, but I am
so picky about things, that he let me pick it, so I did well...he had already
bought me 4 blouses that I picked out...he is always spoiling me...for which
I am thankful....

I did fire up my '93 FLHTCU Harley-Davidson yesterday. I did take a very brief ride too. So good to hear that engine running after this very long hard winter.

We even had the windows open in our bedroom last night. Wonderful! Even the birds are happy with so much chirping going on.

We went and got his bloodwork today.....one of our paramedics here got killed yesterday
on a motorcycle, a brand new Harley.....some guy pulled out in front of him and even with
the helmet he was killed.
That made 2 this week, one of the county rescue squad was in a rescue boat with several
others trying to locate a missing kayaker and she drowned...they found the kayaker the next
day.

Well, glad you did not crash....I always slow down on wet roads because I was
driving one time and hydroplaned on water and did a complete 180 three times
and my kids were in the car.....that was a wake up moment for me....Always
cautious and I absolutely will not use the cruise when it is raining either. They
can lock on if you slam on the brakes and cause a wreck.

if I remember right he was quite young? So that helps in his equation! Thank God he has already come this far.
Daughter and I discovered a small scratch on the pick up I was driving. We didn't mention it to him! lol!!! Not going to either! I figure the longer time between the "near accident" and him seeing it, the better!

the wreck was in Oklahoma...I looked it up...

Whew, sorry about your near miss but at least you didn't crash...

My friend who was in the accident on the bike 3 weeks ago has been
moved to rehab, had 52 staples taken out of his back....has been able
to laugh. Still has paralysis but hoping he gets walking again. Therapists
do amazing things and he is strong altho he said he has lost 38 lbs.

Still no riding but good for you.....did you hear about the big bike wreck yesterday,
in California I think....some SUV crossed the line (texting maybe) and hit 14 bikes
and killed one so far.

We spent most of the day in the Sears auto repair. When they did my brakes last Fall
here, something went wrong and the left calipher was grabbing which threw the truck
to the right, and if I did not hold on to her she would be at least halfway into the next
lane.
The sears auto here closed the first of the month, so we had to drive down to Oxford AL
and have to go back tomorrow. It is still pulling after replacing the calipher so they think
there is a bubble in the line...Sigh....................

No rides yet in Massachusetts . The bikes have been quiet since last November. It is still freezing outside in the morning. We had some snow last night - not much just annoying. It is supposed to warm up this weekend. Our backyard still has a lot of snow.

nope and we sure did go for a brief ride! It was beautiful. A little humid but no worries.

Today I am trying to air out the home. Has that "been closed up all winter" smell to me!
