YES, Kim as a matter of fact I did...lol....a nice diamond tiara would do
just nicely as a crown tho...lol

I am feeling somewhat better today, hopefully will get this blood pressure
straightened out and then going to work on the sleep issues...

Guess we will see what happens with the riding...I don't want to push David
especially if he does not feel up to riding...and just doesn't want to say so....
but either we ride or we get rid of them....

Happy October 1st....time just zips right on by....Christmas will be here before we
know it.

I have an appointment with the dentist tomorrow morning for a cleaning, which is
a good thing because tonight I broke a tooth off....hopefully he can put a crown on
it, but that will be at least $900.....just one thing after another....life happens....

I have been considering possibly getting a lighter bike??? What do you think about
that?????
I am short, and trying to manhandle the Softail around is no easy feat for me.....can't
happen for a while but just a thought....

Good morning and welcome to October 2014. It is a bit wet and rainy here north of Boston this first day of October.

Just finished 21 fitness minutes on my stationary bike this morning. Time for some black coffee and breakfast. Went out and got the morning paper. I am all set.

Fall is hitting here also, however, it will be another month or so before
the leaves begin getting really pretty....motorcycle riding weather is upon
us.

It has been almost a year since DARLENE has written on this post. Fall has begun here in New England. The leaves on trees will take on a beautiful hue as we move into October. It will be a great time to take a ride into the hills and mountains of Vermont and New Hampshire once again.

I just did get off my stationary bike after pedaling away for 26 fitness minutes.

Being the first day of December 2013 there are not too many days of Fall left for this year. December 21 is the first day of winter so there must be 19 more days of Fall. Most of the leaves are now off the trees and in my compost pile. I have worms to feed in my compost bins. The decaying leaves create enough warmth for the worms to survive our winters here in the northeast. Compost worms cannot survive in the compacted earth so they only survive in decaying organic matter. So that is what is going on this fall in our back yard.

Well, in between the fair and here, we went to North Carolina to see our son,
who has re-deployed, but looks like that's about it.
The fall color and leaf displays are really bright around here and we hope to
both be feeling better shortly and riding more.

Today is Tuesday, 24 September 2013 and it is the fall season in New England. The temperature is in the 40s now each morning and the air is dry and crisp.

I performed 55 fitness minutes so far today.

WELL SUMMER RIDING TIME IS HERE???? WHERE IS EVERYONE AT???
SURELY SOMEONE BESIDES MYSELF IS RIDING AND HAS A STORY TO TELL
OR A QUESTION???

MY LITTLE STORY TODAY IS FROM MY NEWSPAPER.....THERE WAS A 62 YEAR OLD
GENTLEMAN OUT RIDING HIS 3 WHEEL MOTORCYCLE SATURDAY EVENING A LITTLE
AFTER 5 PM.....HIS STORY THAT HE IS STICKING TO....FIRMLY......HE FELL ASLEEP
RIDING AND RAN OFF THE HIGHWAY, DOWN AN EMBANKMENT, AND IT TURNED
OVER AFTER HITTING A TREE. FORTUNATELY HE SURVIVED WITH BUMPS AND
BRUISES.

He is doing well - my hubs ended up taking the SUV because of the rain. Hubs is a barber so he gave him a haircut and shave.

No on the driver. All they got from people was that it was a SWIFT truck. Well, we live along interstate 81 and there are literally thousands of them everyday.

Taking Monday as a ride day to Hershey if the weather is fit. Hubs, son and I are going to visit a friend who was hit 2 weeks ago while riding. He was cut off by a semi on the interstate. He's in Hershey Medical Center. He's doing well, but needs some encouragement.

Ride safe this Labor Day weekend!

There are so many rural areas near us it is hard to decide where I like to ride, but I guess near my grandparents in Bedford County, PA would be one of my favorites. Unfortunately, there are many, many deer back there so it's a careful ride, but the mountains and hollows back there make every ride a new adventure!

Good luck with the house. We are contemplating moving, I say contemplating because
I am sure he will stall because his mother is 84........lol I don't care, I love Alabama, can
ride almost all year unless the heat is too much......like today...was 102 then factor in the
heat index and whooooeeeee............
We are still going to the Police motorcycle rodeo tomorrow, but may have to take the truck.
My DH is having problems with his Blood pressure and I don't want to be on the bikes and
have trouble and then be stranded.

Hi,
Welcome to the Spark group.....I used to live in Illinois, right on the Mississippi, and the Great
River Road began just down the street from my home. Drove it quite a few times in my truck
but didn't have my Harley then.

That is beautiful country....

Are you still riding the sporty?? I had an 883, then a 1200, now a Softail.

Let us know how we can help support you and just holler if you have a question.......

Blessings and ride safe,
Darlene

Hey Sherry,
It is good to see you posting....we miss you when
you are AWOl...lol

Odd that deer missed the semi and hit the bike, but
God bless her soul for getting out there ......

There are a lot of deer in Illinois, and when I say
deer I mean big ones. The ones here in Alabama that
I have seen are about Collie size or a little bigger.

Would still do damage to a bike but when one up there
hits you, and I am sure she was surprised too, there
isnt much you can do.

Stay safe gal...

Oh it is always so upsetting to hear of a rider going down for the last time. There isn't a whole lot we can do to avoid the wildlife except be vigilant. I am touring the maritimes in Canada and there are so many signs on all the roads to avoid driving at night for fear of hitting moose. The roads here are heaven to ride, but there certainly are a lot of moose! Take care ladies - rubber side down. Sherry

I heard sad news from home today .. a fellow lady
biker was killed in Illinois yesterday morning when
a deer ran into her bike, threw her off. Her BF ran
off into the median to try to avoid hitting her,an
wrecked but her head hit the back tire of the semi
they just passed and killed her. She was 53.

My daughter & I rode a bit over 40 miles today. It was in the 80's and it sprinkled on us a couple of times, but we had a great time! We went to Hog Alley, a local motorcycle equipment dealer, & ate at their sister bar & grill, Hard Tails. We enjoyed our ride & meal. We communicated with the Scala G4 headset I won from Women Riders Now, an on-line ezine for women riders. Great time together!

Really, I just love to ride, especially since I got
the Softail....(thanks CONCHALEA) for the support...

But I do like to ride up to Little River Canyon and
