It’s All About the T-Shirt
I’m in the middle of my weeklong Colorado Motorcycle trip….and our group is discussing the ride T-Shirt. Hmmmm…..
This group I’m riding with has come in from all over the country. The “core” group is four or five members that have been friends for quite some time. The rest (me included) are invited in for one reason or another.
The theme of this trip and the official Colorado Group Ride is called “Rolling With the Axe Murderers”. Yes, there is a story behind it.....
When I get out on a first date, my girlfriends are more or less my pseudo-parents. They want to know where I’m going, who I’m meeting, what time I have to be there…and I have to call when I am on my way home. It’s all about someone making sure that I’m safe…which is a great feeling—especially being a single girl.
So when my girlfriends all heard I was “going” on vacation with a bunch of folks I have never met, they thought I was crazy. I’m riding my motorcycle all over the state of Colorado with a bunch of strangers. My one girlfriend wants a step-by-step itinerary…and her famous question is “what if they are Axe Murderers”?
For the record, they are not….and are terrific folks to boot. I did tell them the Axe Murderers story, and yes, that has been the theme for the entire trip. Besides, if the trip did head south or our personalities didn’t mesh…I could just ride home.
For the record, it’s been a wonderful time. I have a ton of pics to post and lots of stories to write….and will have to do it when I get home as I’m usually beat by the end of the night. Besides, I have to Photoshop my images before I can post them.
So, it’ll have to wait.
And yes, there is an “official” ride T-Shirt…can you believe that??
Keep the Shiny Side Up!
