New Toy

My husband and I have been talking about this for a while, but we finally bought a motorcycle!

new toy

It is a 1981 Honda CX 500. Now my husband just has to learn to ride it! I grew up around motorcycles. There was always one around. It may not have always worked, but it was always there. Some of my earliest memories are of sitting behind dad or riding in the side car. After I got married dad got his motorcycle running again and I try to get a ride every time I go home. I am so looking forward to my husband getting comfortable on it so I can ride with him.

I had a great weekend. I took a couple days off so I could go down to Kansas City with my husband. He went fishing with a buddy of his and I hung out with my friend. I originally wasn't going to go down, but I found out that my friend is moving to Georgia. Her husband got a great opportunity down there. I am so happy for them, but it will be hard with her being so far away. It still hasn't hit me that this past visit may have been the last time I see her for a LONG time. She has meant so much to me. I guess we will just have to keep the phone lines burning!


  1. you're going to get a sidecar, right? that look like fun!

  2. You should learn how to ride as well. It is great fun. Nice bike and right now is perfect riding weather.

  3. My husband just sold his Harley. But he had little time to ride. I know he will be getting another when time becomes free again. And a larger one. I am no longer comfortable on motorcycles, but the girls love them.
