FI and I ride a lot...we did a 10 day trip (over 2000 miles) in August throughb New Hampshire and Maine.

This weekend we rode all over NJ and PA.

I was wondering if there were others on here that rode (or ride on the back like me). I get a lot of thinking time in back there. It's such a great way to see the country!

 

The one thing I hate

(and this is where it becomes a vent)

is when we tell people we are going riding, and they say

"Oh , I just heard about so and so getting killed on a motorcycle", or "I just heard about this fatal motorcycle accident".

REALLY?

When I tell you I'm driving to work every day you don't tell me about the 15 car accidents yesterday!!!!

FI and I used to ride but he actually ended up selling his bike last year to help save some money for awhile. It is a lot of fun, but I know what you mean about people bringing up motorcycle accidents.

My DH and I ride. Well, same as you, I ride on the back. We haven't done as much riding the past couple of years becuase of our work schedules. But, we both enjoy it.

 

I'm with you. I can't tell you how many times I hear about how dangerous they are.

Hubby and I ride, we actually went for a long bike ride (well long for us, like 4 hours. lol) this past Friday. Hubby just got his bike late last year so we are still building up to a longer ride. It's fun though

We both ride our own bikes. We have 6 right now. I will never sell my custom build. The others come and go. I do on rare occasion ride on the back, but prefer to ride my own. Control issues!!S&M.gif

that drives me crazy when people say that! the idiots that don't take any precautions and drive like maniacs are the ones who give everyone else a bad image.

 

FI and i go on rides with my FSIL and FBIL every once in a while and it is so peaceful! i can't believe you guys did a 10 day ride!!! do you have a group of people you go with?

6 bikes mswhatever? I can't tell FI - He'll be jealous. We only have 3! He wanted me to get my own but I don't trust myself to ride myself. He's bought and sold 2 since I met him and I bought him one for his birthday.

 

Erin we ride a lot by ourselves but sometimes with others. The 10 day trip was just the 2 of us. We rode to the top of Mt Washington in New Hampshire, which is the highest point on the East Coast. No guard rails and very twisty but so much fun. Riding in New England was amazing because it's just so gorgeous up there!

 

We have a couple of friends that we'll do day trips with.

Next month we're going on a group ride with people from a motorcycle magazine and a bunch of his cousins from Virginia in Lancaster, PA.

 

It is the most peaceful feeling....lately I've been listening to my wedding playlist on my ipod and imagining the wedding!

My hubby also rides and I like to ride behind him. We have a bike at home that we ride when we have a chance. Also, for our wedding week, we rented a classic harley for 2 days to take some cool wedding photos on the first day and take a ride in the countryside of France the 2nd day. Javon, our photographer, was amazing and did some pretty creative shots for us! I can't wait till we get to see the pics!!!
