2005 Suzuki 650 VStrom

Left work on Friday with butterflies in my tummy because I was so excited to go for a ride on my 2005 Suzuki 650 VStrom. When I got home our neighbor and her truly adorable little guy were visiting. Although it delayed our getting out on the road, I so enjoyed playing ball with the 22 […]

Getting ready to ride!

I’m so excited that this weekend my wonderful hubby is getting the Nighthawk ready to ride again! Getting ready to ride! This is last year gearing up to ride home from work. We still have brown grass and no leaves on the trees in Minnesota! Winter seems to be dragging on but the hope of […]

Winterized Honda CBR

At the International Motorcycle Show I stopped by the Zerogravity booth and saw this awesome customized or should I say winterize Honda CBR. The guy I talked with said the owner gets better traction on the ice with these spiked tires than he did with tires on asphalt. I would love to take this bad […]

Saturday’s Adventure

Are the Stars Aligned?

Are the stars aligned? This past Sunday it seemed that the stars and the planets aligned for me to finally take the motorcycle for a ride! My heart was racing I was so excited! It had been far too long since I rode, mostly because of the weather. Minnesota has been experiencing 80-90 degree weather […]

What to Wear!

The weather cooperated today so I finally got out on the motorcycle! Hubby was working so I rode by myself for about two hours. I live in an outer suburb of Minneapolis where the county roads are plenteous (or would it be plentiful). Either way I have many scenic roads to choose from so off I […]

I finally got out on the bike again after a business trip to NYC and lots of rain this week! I’ve done mostly local neighborhood streets so I wanted to try traffic! I’m outta here! I did a few of the local streets to warm up and refresh my skills before taking it out over […]
