Yes I am one year older today...29 for the 5th time!!! But I wanted to share something with ya.
I defied the doc's again last night and went to a bike show about 45 miles from the house. Was at a shop that caters mroe to Harley's and cruisers. I have the only Busa or sport bike o fany type there. They had 4 classes. Harley, metric, cruiser and best of show. I didnt win anything as far as metric class goes, but the lady that won the metric class actually came to me right after she was handed her trophy and told the judge that I deserved it. I was astounded after i looked at her cruiser. WOW!!!! It was chromed out to the max. I couldnt beleive her or what she said. But, here is the kicker to the story. It was me, my other half, my brother and some of his friends there. My brother was wakling around when they were giving ou tthe awards. He walked over towards her bike after she had left me and heard her talking to her friends. He heard her say that sport bikes dont belong in bike shows. And she said they dont count. I felt about 2" tall after I heard this. I dont understand some people's opinions about these bikes. I know alot of people get killed on these things, but you can get killed just as easy on a moped as you can on a bike.
My other half does fund raisers for March of Dimes because our daughter was 3 1/2 months early and only weighed 1lb 12oz when she was born. We are planning on a bike show hopefully before ir gets cold for a fundraiser. I wont be partial to sportbikes just because I own one. We are going to have several classes.
It just makes my blood boil when I get critisized about what type of bike I have. i just tell everyone that I got what I liek an dthey got what they like. end of story!!
