It's getting to be that time of year when thoughts of warm summer days and curvy roads float aimlessly about my head. While living up north I always knew it would only be a matter of time before my best bud Deb and I would steal away, with our without our husbands, and ride to distant lands for lunch and adventure. If you remember I wrote about Debby before in http://sunnysideup-eve.blogspot.com/2008/03/my-second-favorite-place-to-be.html
I've found a few new motorcycle blogs lately and the two I look forward to visiting are Mike at "Been Riding and Thinking" http://ridingandthinking.blogspot.com/ and Kari at "Bluekat's Journeys" http://bluekat78.blogspot.com/
I thought I'd post a series of photos from my past as I think about my best friend in the world, Debby, and remember our wonderful years together on our bikes.
This is one of the newer photos of my 2004 Katana after my husband and I lowered it and gave her a new sleeker rear end. (Just what I need!!)Deb and I both had 250cc motorcycles before we got our big bikes. This is her beautiful Sportster 883 Low, which has since been beefed up to a 1200 with a conversion kit her husband surprised her with for Christmas a few years ago.
Deb getting ready to take her bike home.I never brought my Canon DSLR with me on the bike but when I got my G9 I would bring it, when I didn't get too excited and forgot it!
Our trip to Salmon River Falls NY 2008.Alexandria Bay NY 2007.Deb and I went on a few Poker Runs without our husbands but really enjoyed it when they when with us.See! It's a girls bike!!My husbands Sportster and my Katana.The next 4 photos were taken by Glenn Wagner, a good friend of mine, who was photographing during the Fat Boys Toys for Tots Ride we participated in, 2006.
