Friday, after work, I walked outside and saw two motor cycles parked next to my car. I went over to chat with the guys by them as two of the three were people I worked with. One of the bikes was an Indian and I had often heard my brother extol the virtues of that particular brand of bike! After a little bit of chatting I got the nerve to ask if I could sit on it. A little note about bikes, it is highly and strongly recommend that any bike you ride, you be able to sit on it with both your feet flat on the ground. It isn't a rule every one follows but seeing as I want to be as careful as possible when I do eventually get my own bike, I have it firmly fixed in my head that my feet must be flat. When you are only about 5 feet 3 inches, and your legs are not the longer half of your body, finding bikes low enough that don't sound like a bumble bee that just inhaled helium is a challenge! Not to mention finding one with enough power to be taken off the back roads and on to highways!
Imagine my absolute delight when I settled in on this 1100 cc bike (I had been told I wouldn't find much over 550 cc that I could fit on) and not only was it comfortable but I also had both feet flat on the ground!! It felt great and balanced beautifully when I straitened it off it's kick stand!! I couldn't stop laughing and the guys around me joined in at my elation! One even kindly agreed to take my picture so I could send it to my brother! Lol! I just needed some sturdier shoes and my helmet from my apartment and I would have been begging for a ride!! It was the best way to end my work week!!!
