Darlene, here it is Friday night and we just got in from an "art show". and then we went to dinner. A friend of ours is an artist and she held a reception and invited many friends to view her art. Well we went and Sheila could not resist and just could not leave without making a purchase of one of the special works of art. It was a rendition of one of our local light houses and the U.S. Coast Guard station along our mighty Merrimack River.

Maybe we will get out on the bikes tomorrow. Supposed to be a good day. We do have a big storm/hurrican coming up the coast which will bring a lot of wet and wind and maybe snow if the cold front moves in at the same time. Last year at this time we had a big snow storm and it caused a long loss of power and we hope that does not happen again this year.

Hey RE,

Back when Davids' Dyna was wrecked, he was having withdrawal symptoms
so I told him to take mine and go for a spin....he always asked, but then he knows
I watch him for fidgets and sometimes just a ride around town would make him
feel better so I would suggest "that my bike needed exercising." LOL I like the
seat on his better than mine, but aside from that I haven't ridden his because
usually either my legs won't reach or it is too heavy.....now that we have similar bikes
it wouldn't be noticeable .........

Good for your wife for getting something she is happy about.

Have a great ride....is in the low 80's here today and very sunny....and I am packing.
Bummer...
Darlene

Darlene, I did not ride today but my wife and I visited the dealership in North Hampton and she bought a 2010 Ultra Classic Limited with only 4000 mile on it. It was the two tone color that grabbed her. So now she is trading in her 2007 Street Glide for this Very Special Limited with color that she likes. Hopefully we will be on it Saturday. Or she will be on it Saturday and maybe she will let me try it out. Her choice! She has let me take her bike for service with no problem. Things are good.

We rode today.....had a great ride...............sunny and warm...think it got up to 82 today.

RE, our sympathies on the loss of your friend/associate from HOG....we lost one here
last week.......he and his wife had ridden all over the USA and were here at home and
some stupid kid came wheeling out of McDonalds to go straight across the highway, and
hit them broadside...she is still critical in UAB-Birmingham and he died at the scene....
It hits you hard...................
PS: this kid claims they were in his blind spot...........which is kind of hard to believe since he
came out of the McDonald lot and was shooting across the road to go the other way.....

Darlene, Darlene! I rode Sunday and put on about 90 miles does that help. Only thing was - it was a sad ride - a memorial ride to a wake for one of our HOG Chapter members who was fataly injured in a motorcycle accident. We had 52 bikes ride from Seacoast Harley-Davidson to Beverly, Mass to attend the wake. (about 65 of our members) The member was a 64 year old very acrtive member. It was a sad time.

My wife decided she did not like the color of her Street Glide and is about to purchase a used 2010 Ultra Limited that has colors to her liking. The two year bike has only 4,000 miles on it so it is like new and a bit cheaper than if it were new.

We rode yesterday....was thankful we got home before storms broke...lol
however, today, we planed on going riding but it has been cloudy most of
the day, and looks like it is going to bust loose and have all kinds of nasty
weather any minute...very dark outside.

Tomorrow is babysitting day, so wont get any riding in, but I love riding...we
had such a great ride Sunday....

Back in late August of 2008 We were up in those north woods having just gone over the bridge into the "UP" and then down to Milwaukee. Saw a lot of pine trees on the way.

We put on a little over 350 miles this weekend with friends this weekend. Road up to the north woods of Wisconsin and did a benefit ride Saturday through the beautiful, twisty back roads.

Well good for you.....I am going to get a bunch of Davids' patches together and
take them to a lady who does professional sewing and can put them on his vest.
I think he is going to get a rather larger one that says Vietnam vet on it and then put the smaller ones around it.

Thank you for responding! We have not ridden since last Saturday and I do not really have any good excuse. We just chose to stay at home and work around the yard and garden. Suppose to rain tomorrow. I am planning as of right now to go to Laconia, NH on Thursday for the events that are going on there. I will be visiting the Harley-Davidson "Pin Stop" tent for my coverted Harley-Davidson Laconia Pin for 2012.

Since last Thursday I have put over 600 miles on the bike. Went to West Dover, Vermont in support for a cancer benefit - Mothers for Daughters - along with about 600 plus others. I returned over today and put on 150 miles and it is a beautiful day.

Good morning, SPARK MATES of the Harley Women and Men Team - we were out on the bikes yesterday and put 50 miles on them. Hers is now in the "Toy Box" but mine was returned to where we keep them during the winter. Probably will get mine into the "Toy Box" today. We are going to the local BPOE Lodge of Elks for breakfast this morning.

Good morning, SPARK MATES! Today is Thursday. I did ride yesterday - about 40 miles around and about. It was in the 50s and that is comfortable. It was mission oriented - had things to do and I did it on the '93 Ultra.
