I am not complaining… we have had such an unusually warm winter, it’s been “riding season” all year long. Yesterday, it reached 57°F (14°C)… again, quite unusual for mid-February in the DC area. Just imagine, two years ago we were under mountains of snow!
After catching up on some much-needed rest yesterday, I put on my retro biker chaps, an old leather jacket, Chippewa ostrich motorcycle boots, and motored over to Mary’s home.
Mary is a fun-loving septuagenarian who wanted to go for a ride on my Harley, and make a “big splash” as she called it by arriving at the grocery store on the back of my bike at about the same time that she knew some other friends were going to be shopping there.
So I picked her up and got to the store at 2:30pm, arriving at the same time as her friends, as well as her minister from church.
There I am just being a regular ol’ biker with the most fun-loving “biker chick” on the back of my bike. It was a lot of fun. Kinda broke up my day from worries at home, while my partner was resting and being looked after by another senior pal, Anna.
Sorry, no photos of me with Mary… while she is adventuresome, I’m not sure how she would feel about showing up on a gay biker’s blog. The photo above was indeed taken yesterday, though… which proves my point that it was warm enough to ride in “mid-level” leathers.
Names were changed to protect the innocent LOL!
Life is short: show those you love how you love them, and fulfill dreams.
