The Other Side of the Ride

Everyone that rides dreams of those times on the open road.  We want to experience looking out and seeing nothing in front of us except the beautiful landscape that God has given us.  Always searching around the next turn for exhilaration as we ride into some new road and scenery.  We crave endless roads that are free of cars, trucks, buses, construction vehicles, and gravel haulers.  The riding experience can be difficult to get across to non-riders.  Try as you may, they simply don't "get it".  Hence the biker patch that reads, "If I have to explain you wont understand". Riding is addictive and every time we embark on our next journey we chase after that perfect ride.

Margarets Softail Deluxe

For months I have had to endure the whining from Margaret saying "Wheres my Harley?!"  I learned to tune the question out or pretend not to hear her say it.  As she has gotten more comfortable riding the kawasaki I knew the question would have to be addressed eventually.

Monitor Crash

Yup, my primary monitor crashed last night.  I thought it might be going out for quite a while because it would often flicker or just not turn on.  Last night though, the electronic grim reaper came for the monitor.

Computer Crash

My computer crashed this past weekend so I haven't been able to post. I did have a post just about ready when the problem occurred.  Fortunately all of my data is stored on a separate drive and backed up to our server so nothing was lost.  It will probably be another week before a new riding post goes up since I don't have a lot of time to work on the computer when I get home.

Patriot Guard- Memorial Day 2013

This year for Memorial Day Margaret and I took part in a Patriot Guard mission.  The mission was to set up a flag line and flag back drop for the speakers of the ceremonies and to respectfully stand tall and silent.  The placing of the flag and wreath presentation that represented all branches of the armed forces was performed by the Mansfield High School ROTC.  Many speakers including Rick Crabb from the Patriot Guard reminded us of the importance of remembering the men and woman that died in service to our country.
