Lots of riding

Wowsers, i have soooo much to catch you up on.  I am really trying to get back into this whole blog thing as Stuart and I are now doing so much with the bike club (HOGs)  I cannot believe i didn't buy bike sooner although i did enjoy riding on the back with Stuart.  Speaking of Stuart, he has purchased himself a new beautiful bike.  Harley Davidson Street Glide in the most gorgeous red colour.  This bike is pretty awesome - comes with sat nav......... loud stereo - yep it comes with a stereo and yep you can hear it when you are riding hehehehehe Even I can hear it if I have my visor up and i am directly behind Stuart.  I must say though that he gets some funny looks when we are sitting at the lights and he has his music blaring
"The Beast"
As I mentioned before we have been doing lots of rides with the club and with individuals from the club when there is no official ride on.  

My first big ride/overnighter
21st May - Pottsville

My first big ride and it was with the club.  I told Stuart that I did not think I was ready for it but he told me to just get on with it so I did. What a scary / fun time.
 We all rode from the Harley store in Nerang out the back through Murwillumbah and then into Suffolk Park where we stopped for lunch.  I loved riding through the twisty mountain roads but was terrified riding back to Pottsville on the highway.  I felt so vulnerable and almost pooped my pants when a big truck went flying past.  I felt sorry for Rennie the poor tail end Charlie as I am sure that i never reached the speed limit once on that part of the journey.  

Me hehehehehe
They say that there is never any pressure and I am sure there isn't from them.  I do however sometimes feel that I pressure myself.  In the end it didn't matter as I made it in one piece ready for a fun night with the guys.  This was our first experience with the club and boy was it an experience.  These guys sure know how to party........

We went to a little Mexican restaurant in Pottsville and I don't think they knew what hit them.  We had dancing on the tables, a little bit of air guitar and plenty of beverages flowing.  We even had a conga line go right through the restaurant out the back door and in the front.  A few of the younger guests joined in with us.  I cannot remember the last time I laughed so much 

Our first ever HOG overnighter was a HUGE success.  Everyone is incredibly welcoming and we can see that we are going to have many years of fun times with this crazy bunch of people.

Well I had planned to tell you about some of our other recent rides and antics however I think I will leave that for another post.

And remember - happiness is not something ready made.  It comes from your own actions so with that in mind go out and enjoy :-)

Until next time
