Talking Couldn't take it any longer!!

Well Yesterday was a beautiful day highs in the 70's, wife had a workshop that she attended all day, was left to my own devices!!!

I took out the "Beerburner" for a little ride, only for an hour! I have been smiling ever since!! It has been nearly three months since I rode the "Beerburner".
After the hospital stays and I am doing much better.

What a joy to feel the wind and to scoot along!!!! HaHaHaHaHa!

Take care, ride safe, Floyd.

That's fantastic, Floyd! I could tell when we talked the other day the "Itch" to get in the saddle was working you pretty hard. How did you feel after you got home and the thrill settled down a bit? Do you think you might try that ride with your buddies you mentioned? Either way, being back on the bike and knowing you can ride some has got to feel great!

Cool

Dave I got home after lunch today, We had a great time. We were supposed to meet at 0800, we were there at 0730. Miss E rode with me and it was like nothing had ever happened, I was a little nervous at first but that went away real quick!!
