I was pleased to be contacted via my website by Leather Chad (“LC”), who lives in the Washington, DC, area, near where I live. We exchanged some messages, and in one of them, I invited him to join me for a ride on my Harley.
I’ve said that on some postings in various places that I like to take people either on my bike or ride with people who share similar interests — boots & leather. Well, I have to be honest, five years now with that message “out there,” and this was the first local contact I’ve had that has actually worked out — someone joining me for a ride.
“LC” is a very handsome, intelligent man who is very interesting to speak with. We got together yesterday afternoon. I gave him a ride on my Harley through the Maryland countryside. The leaves on the trees are beginning to change colors, and the weather was delightful — perfect “leather weather.” (I was in leather breeches, a pair of Dehner Boots, a leather shirt and vest.)
We stopped to take a break and talked about a wide variety of things, then rode back. What a pleasant afternoon with a really nice guy!
“LC” had a nice pair of harness boots and a great leather jacket. He promises that the next time we ride, he’ll wear some leather pants. Great — but what’s most important is that we will have that next time. I enjoyed meeting him, and look forward to more rides with my buddy.
Life is short: ride!
