I know a lot of you aren't motorcycle riders, but hopefully my occasional motorcycle post doesn't bore you too much.
I just enjoy it so much, and it's a part of my life, so it's hard not to share.
Maybe you don't name your vehicles in your household, but I think it just makes life more fun. For example, my Jeep's name is Lucy. I once named my friend's house, Steve. Because the girl and I drove by it daily when I picked her up after work from daycare, so we'd wave at Steve on the way by.
I do realize that I'm not normal.
But, what's the fun of being normal?
So, the above picture is Ohio before her backrest....obviously.
She said she likes her left side the best.
By the way, aren't these like the coolest, bestest bags, like ever? Huge. Love. Them.
They're one of the reasons I bought this bike. It has hard bags that are leather covered, so they don't look as automotive as those painted hard bags, not as bulky.
Oh, yes dear. hehehe
The boy just goes back to his anime drawing... that's Sunshine on the right, the fireman's bike. He needs new bags, like baaaad. He doesn't have hard bags like me, so they saaag after a while.
Yes, I do realize that my planters have dead plants in them. There are weeds, too dontcha know.
I'm not ashamed.
The fireman hates chrome. It's toooo shiny. He took all of the chrome off of his bike. He powder coated it flat black and even wrapped his mufflers in black to black-out the bike.
The bag brackets go back on after the mounting bracket.
Is that clear?
Also, I may get some backrest bag that I can snap on and off when I get to work. Maybe something that I can use as a purse-like bag to just take in stores and such with me.
Oddly enough, they don't make any bags that double as a purse. Who'da thought?
I took the girl for a nice little ride the day after I got this on, she really loved it. she leans back on it, holds on to me and just relaxes. She's totally at ease on the bike. I don't take her on the highway, but some of the old country roads nearby are perfect for puttering around.
And the floorboards instead of pegs? Super comfy. I just plant my feet down on them and my legs are relaxed. Very cool.
