Biker Chick

Okay, I’ll admit it – I have a thing for biker chicks. Maybe it’s the thrill of the open road or perhaps the way the wind blows through their hair. I don’t know.

So, imagine my surprise when Char leaned over and gently whispered in my ear, “I really, really want a bike.” Okay, it didn’t happen like that but she did mention it in casual conversation – same thing.

Moments like these are priceless. With an anniversary, Christmas, and a birthday back to back I need all the help I can get in the gift-giving department.

Char got a water bottle and tire repair kit for Christmas. So, it only seemed right to get her a bike when we returned. We took a day and Char test rode bikes. She decided on this beauty with a handlebar bag, kickstand, and lock. We went on our first ride together in a long time.

Granted the helmet reduced the wind blowing through her hair but she is a safe good-looking biker chick.

I have to say you had me there for a minute with the biker chick. I don't know to many women that want a motorcycle or encourage their husbands to get one. My hubby had a motorcylce in his younger years before I knew hime. He always thought he would like another one. I said they were to dangerous and he said he would drive slowly. I hate my hair blowing in the wind, it messes up my hairdo!!

RFalph, a tip, get some mudgaurds on that bike, theres nothing worse than that wet sripe down her back if she gets caught in the rainm really turns a biker chick off.

Two of my B-I-Ls have big Harley bikes. I want one. Just a little one. My First Wife thinks I'm nuts, but I tell her I'm no more nuts than I was when we got married.

She always says, "Wanna bet?"

Hey, if I get one, I'll take her for a ride. Then I'll have a biker chick, too. Whatcha think?

Okay, yea, now I want one. I'm not even sure if I can still ride a bike. Char does look perfectly fit as a biker chick.

Char looks lovely in her biker's helmet! I love the handlebar bag. I could use one of those on my bike.

Great gift Ralph! You two can enjoy riding together now!

I can't wait to see her tatoo's.
Make sure you tell her where you want to go each time since I'm sure you'll insist she goes first.

"On the road again!" Ah, the wind through your hair, the bugs on your teeth... you've solved the former, but what about the latter? /Deb
