I’ve been one motorcycling mama over the last week! 51 years old and still in my first year of learning to ride.
Saturday, we rode to Detroit. Stayed there over the weekend. Rode around while also presenting at a kink event. Monday (Memorial Day) we decided to ride back home. Damn was it hot! Made a pit stop in Sandusky for the end of ‘bike week’ up there. Bought some fingerless gloves to help with the heat on the ride. It was 92 degrees! We had to stop a few times just to sit in air conditioning and cool our bodies down.
At least at the moment, i ride full gear all the time. Though, honestly, i had to take the gloves off for awhile. They were blocking any air getting up the sleeves of my jacket. That’s why i ended up buying fingerless gloves. i also bought a drink holder. Need to drink water at stop lights when possible. The fingerless gloves help with this as well.
Today, we road for about 5 hours to southern ohio. What a beautiful ride through fields and Hocking HIlls!
Getting this bike is one of the best decisions i’ve made.
