A FUN day for us :o)!!

Finally I’m all kitted up and ready to ride :o)…..January 10 288Snazzy new jacket and gloves. This isn’t the helmet I chose … they didn’t have my size in the colour I wanted so it’s been ordered and the one I’m wearing is a “loaner”.January 10 289 My DH already had his gear …. doesn’t he look the part ;o)??!!January 10 291 All aboard … need to grow a bit he he he………January 10 292 And we’re ready to go!!!!!!! Do I look excited??!!January 10 293I LOVED riding the bike, it was such fun. I’ve put in my order for a sheepskin cover for my seat though … it definitely needs a bit of extra padding lol - even though I carry a bit extra down there myself he he he. We didn’t go far the first time … just out to the bay and then we stopped for a coffee and watched the boats out on the water. What a lovely afternoon it was :o).

Hope you had a fun weekend too :o)

When you said you were going bike riding, I thought bicycles. Good for you. I have only rode a motor bike once. I like more protection around me than that affords.

Chriss said...

Wow, look at you, how great a time was that! So pleased you enjoyed it too.
Suggestion, get some decent trou and proper boots too. The passenger always comes off worse if you have a crash - or come off for any reason. We are a family with a lot of bikes and everybody comes off at some time or another. Legs, shoulders, elbows, feet,hands, always sustain the worst damage....and it hurts! Stay safe and have fun, love your blog and your work.

Looks like you had a fun time. You do look the part...It's nice that you take rides with DH, hope he takes time to stop at the shops with you.

Janice said...

You did have fun shopping! The new gear looks great. I'm sure you'll be even happier when your own helmet arrives. Definitely do what it takes to make the ride comfy. There is nothing worse that "numb bumb". I hope you both get out and about lots on the new toy. We took our old side car out on Australia Day.

Bec said...

Now how cool does that look, you and dh in leathers on the bike...Hope you had lots of fun! Makes me wish to go for a burl too..... *grin* with a great big sidecar for all the trillions of kids I have!

Now for boots and shall I let you know now that the lambswool seatcover might not help.?! I just got a wider seat. It is heaven.
