Motorcycle Monday: Waiting to ride

There she is, my old girl (she’s 12 this year), with her nose pointed to the garage door, just waiting to be ridden.  She knows Spring is coming and soon the snow and ice will melt and she’ll feel the black top beneath her rubber.  She waits impatiently.


The saddlebags are ready to be packed, unpacked, repacked…they know it takes at least 3 times of rearranging to get it just right for a trip.


The V-Twin is ready to feel the energy coursing through it, to unleash the power.


The handle bars and hand grips ready to be gently gripped, squeezed and rolled.


The mufflers are ready to be heard and go from “potato, potato, potato” to vroooom; ready to turn heads as we ride by.

The tail is ready to be the last thing you see as we escape one life and ride the life that we love more than any other.

    That is a very nice looking bike! I can’t imagine what it must be like having to just go and look at it and maybe give it a polish and just wait months to be able to ride! We are lucky here in that our winters are so mild we can ride pretty much all year round, occasionally it snows in the mountains some 200kms away but even then we can still ride here on the coast. The worst we get is rain in winter, June through to September, but in between there are glorious days which we take full advantage of.
