I got this shirt when I was down in Key West.  In the past when buying shirts – I tend to find certain brands I like and I stick to them.  The bulk of my wardrobe is Hard Rock Cafe, Harley Davidson, and NY & Co..

My love of all things Hard Rock started years ago.  My first Hard Rock shirt was from the Sky Dome in Toronto, Canada (I don’t think it’s there anymore – does anyone know?).  Later in life, I started searching for Hard Rock Cafes in my travels.

Then I started liking motorcycles and started visiting Harley dealerships….

NY & Co. – their clothes just fit me well 🙂

Do you have certain brands you love?
Is there a reason?

Me with my bike ~ April 24, 2010

Saturday was a beautiful day in Upstate, NY.  Michael and I went out on our motorcycles.  It was kind of a big deal because I haven’t really gotten the chance to ride my bike for any distance since the end of 2008.  Last season when I took it out I pulled a few muscles trying to hold it up when it didn’t want to keep the shiny side up.  So this season I decided that I really want to ride again.  We went out to Richfield Springs – 132 miles round trip.  We couldn’t have asked for nicer weather.  Not too hot, not too cold.

Michael on his bike with the LowePro camera bag he is reviewing.

This is Michael on his bike.  He’s demoing a LowePro Flipside 300 camera bag that he’s going to write a review for.  He wanted to test it out on the bike and see how things went.  It looks like it was pretty comfortable.

What did you do or what do you plan to do this weekend?

Where's our Destination?

So tonight I was working on making ride plans for our motorcycle club No Destination.  If you’re local to Round Lake, NY and ride motorcycles you should check it out.  All types of bikes are welcome.  We have Harley’s, Sport Bikes, Yamaha’s, Suzuki’s, Triumph’s, Victory’s, choppers, etc….  (By the way, they have a Facebook page now – check it out)

No Desination

Anyway, back to the ride plans…  I use the Harley Davidson Ride Planner to map out the rides.  The program can be frustrating to say the least.  It does help to check the “Avoid Highways” box.   Every time you drag the route to a different road it creates a waypoint along the ride.  By the end of the ride it tells you 10 times to “continue on route 9.”  It’s annoying if you’re trying to condense the ride to one page.

Moving on – Do any of you in the northeast have any good destinations to ride to?  We need rides within an hour radius of The Mill in Round Lake, NY for our weekly rides as well as some rides further out for weekend rides.

Do you have ride ideas for us?
And if you know good roads to get there (that aren’t highways) it’s even better!!

Thanks for all your help.

Our Bikes

Most couples have monogrammed “His & Hers” towels.
Forget the dang towels, we have bikes!!

His is loud and obnoxious, mine purrs like a kitten.
His looks hot but is uncomfortable, mine looks hot but can be ridden for hours.

I like the color of mine better too 😉

All day long I kept hearing bikes driving by my house because the weather is getting better.
I know it’s early in the year to remind everyone, but PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE watch for motorcycles.
We hide in blind spots, we get ignored when we’re in lanes to turn left….
Please be aware and alert.

Happy Spring a little bit early.

What signs make you realize spring is almost here??
