I must be INSANE!
So today, when he asked me just WHEN I was going to go for a ride, (he's had the bike for over a year!!! LOL), I thought it was TIME ....(egads!) LOL
So, Mike fitted me with a helmet, I climbed aboard, and off he went for a 10 minute fly through the countryside.
I've been on only one other motorcycle before in my life -- hmmmmm, maybe 30 years ago! LOL It was much larger and with a second passenger seat. This was like flying on a pulse wave ... and I was hoping all the while Mike could breathe as I clung to him with all the strength I had! LOL
As we passed trees in a blur, other cars, and the air about took my helmet from my head, I think I prayed all the prayers of a year in those 10-15 minutes! LOL
When we arrived back at his house, I was a tad shakey.... but had to admit it was fun ....! (But truly NOT something I would like to do on a daily basis! LOL These old bones aren't as brave as they once were! LOL)
And as I drove home with my ton of steel surrounding me, I offered up even more prayers that our heavenly father, and my son's grandfather whom I believe shares that sacred place, to please keep an eye on this beloved child of mine ....especially as he makes his way to and fro on this motorized vibration!
