Well, I had a choice to make yesterday. My mother recently passed away unexpectantly. My father requested that I pick her up from the funeral home. ( She was cremated). My mom always worried about the two of her sons that rode bikes. She never had, and said she never would, ride on a bike.
She forbid my father from getting on a bike again after I let him ride my Honda 750 some 20 years ago and he came back in an ambulance. ( broken collar bone, sprained wrist and a few other hurts)
Anyway, decided to take the afternoon off to go get mom. As I started to walk to the Tahoe LT ( My big LT), I thought; "what the hell".
Grabbed the KLT's key's and took off. Picked mom up and took her for a ride.
With Jimmy Buffett cranked up, we rode around town for a while.
Figured if I didn't get a flat, or a dead battery, she was enjoying it.
One thing I know for sure; riding a bike is a whole lot safer ( for all of us) now that there is a new angel
taking charge and protecting the bike riders down here. And the food up there has just gotten a whole lot better !
Now.....I'm wonderin' how mom would feel about a little skydiving.....
Don't worry Mom..I'll ride safe !
