As usual, I am trying to catch up on sharing the wonderful experiences we have had here in Colorado this summer. On June 23rd, between visits from friends, and exactly a week after Eric & Pam so graciously delivered our motorcycles to us in Estes Park, we decided to break the no riding spell with a doozy! Mount Evans Scenic Byway has long been the highest paved road in North America, at 14,130′, and it is approximately 100 beautiful, curvy, and twisty miles from Estes Park!
We interrupt the long silence in reporting our Southwest trip to report a really fun meeting with another Moto Blogger that happened after only a week’s notice!
The hubs and I started riding almost 20 years ago, at “advanced” ages, for most motorcyclists. Better late than never, right? We made up for lost time, however, taking almost all of our vacations on our bikes, traveling all over the US and into Canada. We lived in Metro Atlanta for 12 of those years, but then we got tired of having to ride back into the city after a long day on the bikes, and we moved north. Into the foothills of the Appalachians, near Dahlonega, Georgia, AKA motorcycling heaven. So…there are LOTS of wonderful roads in our “hood”. And we consider our hood to be within 200 to 300 miles, of course. 🙂
I’d rather be riding my motorcycle thinking about God than sitting in a church thinking about riding a motorcycle.
I am not a religious person but I do consider myself a spiritual person. And I believe there is no better place to witness the most awe-inspiring creations than from the seat of my bike.
I worship at the Church of two wheels.
This post is part of the Brave, Bold, Blogger Challenge (BBBC) issued by my moto-blog friend Kathy, aka ToadMama, to cover 28 blog prompts in the month of February. And good for undisciplined me, no rules either.
For our northern motorcycle brethren, there is a beginning and an end to the riding season. Snow, ice, and frigid cold keep most two-wheeled transporters snug in their garages, with battery tender lifelines, for months on end. Continue reading

Yesterday I completed my second post, albeit on the third day of the February challenge, and today (Day 4) I am again taking advantage of the ‘no rules’ philosophy and combining days 3 and 4 to get current! Continue reading
I know this is crazy, since I haven’t posted since last August, but I have accepted the Brave, Bold, Blogger Challenge (BBBC) issued by my moto-blog friend Kathy, aka Toadmama! It involves a post each day in the generally moto-bare month of February, based on a list of prompts she provided. I am starting off strong with my first post, on the actual first day of February! 🙂 Continue reading
