I guess that is what some people call it when a guy nearing (ever so close to) 40 goes out and buys himself a shiny new (or not so new) motorcycle. However that thought never really crossed my mind when Stephen asked to buy one off a guy he works with. I wasn't thrilled with the idea, not because I thought he was having a midlife crisis, but because I thought there were plenty of other things we could spend our money on. I said no. We always talk about big purchases and agree when or if we spend the money. I was sure this thought was settled and we would not be the owners of a motorcycle anytime soon. Stephen had other ideas...
He made the decision to get the bike (it really was a good price, I guess) and well now we are that crazy old couple that rides around on a motorcycle every chance at nice weather we get.
Here is a bit of history...My dad had a Honda gold wing when we were little (I was like 13) he and my mom would take little weekend trips and we would stay with grandma or a friend or some other family member. He would take us on little rides around town and even once took me to Kansas. That was amazing right. Well at 13 Kansas is like way far away. It was the coolest thing ever at the time. I loved it when i got to go with dad on his bike. I was cool! Well that was the last time I was on a bike until I met Stephen and got to meet his dad. When I met his dad he looked like the biker dudes in the movies. Big tall scary guy dressed in black leather riding a Harley. It was this time in life that I finally got to ride on the back of a Harley.
IT TERRIFIED ME!!
His bike was nice a "Fat boy" is what is was I believe. He only took me a couple of miles, but the bike did not have a back rest and I was so scared I was going to slide right off the back. It was then that I didn't care if I never got on another motorcycle.
|Have really started to like the view from here :)|
|Just look at him...my goodness :)|
But its is amazing how when we get on the bike we don't worry about our phones or bills or work or anything really just us taking a ride and enjoying each others company when we stop to eat or look at a view that we never really looked at before. I am loving this life we are living together. The longer we are together the better it is getting.
Well I suppose I have kept you with my rambling long enough and I must be going now.
Until next time.
Have a great day!
