Farewell to Lady

      For five seasons I have enjoyed the company of a fine Lady logging more than 50,000 miles, a few heart aches, and more fond memories than I could ever find the time to share.  The Lady was a 2007 C50T and yesterday she went to a new home.  I know that she will continue to provide good times for her new owner.

    Lady moved on because I have a new interest in my life.  Oh, I'm not putting away my riding gloves, yet.   Over the years, the lady with whom I share a bed, has made it clear to me that while Lady was a great first bike, she lacked certain amenities, amenities like a seat as comfortable as a Lazy Boy.  That's one of the reasons why my new interest is a 2013 Road Glide Ultra similar to the one pictured above.

   The new bike is approximately 350 pounds heavier than Lady, but you couldn't tell by the way she handles.  It has such a low center of gravity I barely need to shift my weight for "U" turns.  The air ride suspension turns even the most washboard road to new pavement.  However, the feature that my life long lady appreciates most is...  the radio/sound system.  It's almost as if she would rather listen to music than hear what I have to say.  I can't blame her, I know I would. 

More later.  Ride Safe!
