I attended a biker’s leadership conference over the past few days.I regret that the organization that sponsors the conference thinks that anything mentioning same-sex relationships or “things gay” is contrary to its “family friendly” position, so I cannot say exactly who sponsored it or where it was. Let’s just say it was near the same town where my mother-in-law lives. I stayed at her home (saving the cost of a hotel room.) I did not ride my motorcycle to the location where the conference was held because my partner went with me so he could visit his Mom. He cannot ride as a passenger on my bike due to an ongoing disability that has prevented him from riding with me for the past seven years. Man, I miss him (on the back of my bike)! Anyway, the conference was interesting, and I learned a thing or two that will help me as I work with my motorcycle club. All good. I will blog more about various issues that were brought to my mind about being a biker who happens to be gay in future blog posts. Life is short: be open to learning!
