The ride down to the open house site was the long route; I had a few errands to run! One being the post office to drop off the mail and then off to the car wash since my Fatboy was dirty from the riding last weekend. Besides, I knew the car wash was on the scavenger hunt and I figured I could get some taking a photograph of me washing my bike.
I was right!
Bike wash, anyone??
In typical Christine fashion, I found that I had forgotten to pack my towel so my seat was wet. With no time to spare, I swiped off the water and let my bootie dry off the rest of the seat as I climbed back on and headed south.
Since I was running late at that point, I decided to take the most direct route—which means riding Academy. I dislike riding Academy since that is where I got bumped in January. However, the ride was uneventful and I made it down to Rocky Mountain Plaza safe and sound.
With Bucky, Jeanne, and Reyna at the helm of the grill, Dorothy and Karla out in the walkway talking their typical trash, and Barb manning the 2006 Women in Motorcycling conference table, we started the day off running. I took running the cash box since Kelly was out riding the Breast Cancer Ride for the Cure in Denver (lucky her!).
Dorothy, in her typical German determination, wouldn’t take no for an answer and I think collected a donation from just about everyone that passed by! At some point during the day, Karla started selling using the “eye candy” sales technique and I think they tried to sell me once or twice!! Fortunately, they were unsuccessful!!!! Whew!!
At one point, someone had made a donation to our cause and someone piped up “thank you for supporting our breasteseses” We were just rolling; it was so funny!
Overall, it was a great day. The weather cleared up and the day was a spectacular one! We closed up shop early since the grill died and we could no longer keep the food hot, so we cleaned up and went for a short ride.
Scavenger hunting, of course!!
Balancing Rock, Garden of the Gods
What a glorious Saturday—talking to women about motorcycling, collecting money for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation and just hanging out with my friends! Then to close the day with a ride around the Garden of the Gods and downtown.
Life on the back of a motorcycle with a great bunch of friends is indeed great!
Keep the Shiny Side Up!
