Real Biker's Wear Pink.

First Ride of the Season!

A little chilly out, as temps were only about 50. but K.I.S.A. and I went for a little motorcycle cruise last evening. It was great to get outside after this extremely long winter.

As you can see, I'm wearing 3 layers of clothes to keep the the wind down. Strange to be riding and still see a few snow piles in some parking lots and still a bit of ice out on the lake. But all in all it was a very enjoyable ride.

Temps are supposed to reach the low 60's this weekend so we will definitely do a bit more riding. We usually ride out to Hell, Michigan for lunch at the Damn Site Inn. Yes, there really is a Hell. Kind of a biker hang out, but really nice people and good food. Not the kind of bikers you're thinking, but the old couples like K.I.S.A and me.

Here is another picture which shows my bike a bit better. It's a 2003 Suzuki Intruder 800cc. It's a small, light bike which is great to learn on and easy to handle for a Grandma like me. Lately though, I've been having the itch to get a newer bike and really thinking of getting a Harley. Can't decide though, since they are pretty expensive since you are just paying for the name and the prestige, my bike is paid for and there is nothing wrong with it. It's just that almost every biker wants a Harley.
So what do you all think? Wanna go for a cruise?

Hi, I arrived at yur website via the PTI forum. I am a big fan of the show, Orange COunty Choppers (OCC). Not sure if you have seen it but I bet if you entered to win a custom made chopper you would win! Why? Because I have never seen a woman ride a bike on the show let alone a grandma! You're fabulous!
