A little while back, my mom and I rode out early one morning to get some snaps of the bikes in the wonderful morning glow. It was a nice, warm morning and a great little ride.
Lately it’s been not so great outside. Rain all day today, cloudy most other days. When it is sunny I try to get out and ride. I even ventured into Kent last week to see a friend I haven’t talked with in a LONG time. Good times were had by all. Sadly, it appears that summer has finally come to a close. The days aren’t creeping into the 70’s anymore. I’m feeling lucky if it just slides into the 60’s. It looks like I’ll soon be riding the bike to Clyde for the last time and to ready it for winter work or just storage.
So, in honor of this summer bidding us adieu, I offer up some photos of that warm mornings ride that seems so long ago. At the top of the post is what I took with me that morning on our ride. Helmet, gloves, glasses, camera bag and all that stuff. Not too much but it definitely freaks me out having that much expensive gear on that back of this motorcycle. Anyway, there are a few photos of my mom’s bike but a bunch more of mine since it requires infinitely less retouching. Check ’em out!
I was able to squeeze in a little photo editing on some bikes yesterday in between editing engagement photos and working on some design projects. Good stuff fo sho. I spent a fair amount of time on that Harley image to get it looking just how I wanted. Real sexy stuff. It makes me realize I need some chrome or gloss paint on my bike.
Part two of my story ended with me finally getting to take the bike back to Cleveland and fun times were had by all. That is until just a few days later when I went on a quick ride to Nancy’s cousins place.
So much for buying something and hoping it works. I figured this bike would need some work but I didn’t think I’d be spending just about every weekend in Clyde hoping to get this thing truly road-worthy. Some fixes have been easy and some not so much. Want to find out what’s been going on since the last post? If so, click the link below and read on.
I bought a motorcycle earlier this week. It may not be the most practical, comfortable or smart decision I’ve made since moving back to Ohio but it is something I needed. Transportation is key to getting around here and motorcycles are cheaper to own/run so that’s what I went for.
