A Sailing We Will Go…
Ahh Friday, you dirty day of the week! You make me wait all week to arrive then I have to wait a full 8 hours to fully enjoy your company! Such a tease!
Before Friday though is Thursday and after a couple of weeks of racing hiatus, we were back out on the sail boat. After the last week of rain, the sun was shining and the wind was howling.
The race was soo much fun, I have missed those Thursday nights out on the boat. It was a smooth sail, nothing broke, no one fell over and we came in second place. Sailing success.
Wednesday while sitting at my desk for 8 looooooooong hours, all I day dreamed about was riding my motorcycle that night. When I got home, I realized my bike was in a different spot, it was moved over about 8 inches or so. Yes, I noticed that little of difference in its position.
Upon closer inspection, I realized that my left turn signal was missing. Puzzled I looked at the bike with a “what the hell happened to you?” stare. I ran inside to Colin and instead of our usual kiss and welcome home, the first thing out of my mouth was, “What happened to my bike?!?!!?”
It was then that he showed me that not only had the turn signal broken off but also the shifter had snapped off. Dammit, definitely no riding tonight. Something did not want me on the roads that night. I then proceeded to have a glass of wine to comfort my broken heart of a ride-less night.
With all the wind that came though with Topical Storm Debby, we think the wind blew it a little off of the side stand. Not to mention, Colin lowered it a tiny bit for me as well. So we think these two facts lead to the fall over of my beloved SV
Right now, we have the bike lined up in this order: The Ducati, my SV and the Concours. So my bike fell to the left, which is where the Ducati stands. THANK GOD, he was out riding his bike when my decided to fall over. Could you imagine walking outside to see my SV laying on the $8,000 Ducati?!?! It makes my cringe.
So tonight, date night consisted of getting dolled up and going to dinner…but that was after heading to Cycle Gear to see if they had a new shifter and turn signal. They did not. So as we speak Colin is ghetto rigging my bike with a shifter and turn signal until the new ones come in the mail. It pays to date an engineer who knows a thing or a million about motorcycles
Hope you all have a safe weekend!
