As a few of you may have heard Andy and I bought a bike a few weeks ago. We use to ride years and years ago, almost 19 years to be precise. Funny coincidence – our son will be 19 shortly 🙂 Well since we’ve gotten it we are having a blast. This week I may have told him to hurry up and finish dinner so we could be out and ride. I know I’m mean but it was a really really, really nice night and I just wanted to go for a ride.
We were planning to head down to see my friend Michele at Chateau Des Charmes on Saturday and when I messaged her she replied with a link. The link was for the Big Brothers Big Sisters Charity ride from NOTL to St Catherines. The part that really sold it for me – Juice and Tig from Sons Of Anarchy were going to be there. Don’t get me wrong I’m happy to give to charity but I’m a HUGE SOA fan.
Well we went and did the ride and we had a GREAT time. It was an great experience for sure. Riding along side of 400 other bikes is pretty cool. There were also lots of people that stopped to watch as everybody cruised be 🙂

Here’s a little set of photos that Andy took of me doing my thing today.
Also my favourite #FromTheBackOfTheBike photo so far 🙂
So do you ride?If so have you ever done a charity ride before?
I grew up in small town Ontario so of course there were a couple of motorcycles in the drive house. The only problem was that I didn’t ride them I was only a passenger.
It wasn’t until I met my husband, Andy, that I spent any real time on a bike. We had a bike (Yamaha XJ750) before the kids arrived. However, after the kids came along we just didn’t have time to ride anymore so we sold it. There’s nothing worse than a bike sitting and not being ridden!
Fast forward twenty years and we were once again cruising around on two wheels. Almost five years later and the only thing that’s changed is I now ride my own bike. If only I had understood how awesome it was to ride my own bike I would have done this years ago.
