Yesterday, had to ride an hour to find a local Telus dealer that was open so I could replace my phone that vanished between Princeton and Osoyoos. I hate losing all the info that built up over the time you own a phone...

Today, it's off to the manufacturer of my tent trailer, time to buy more goodies... :o

Spent about an hour washing and chopping fruit (grapes, strawberries, honeydew, raspberries and watermelon). Taking some of it to work for "doughnut day" today! Yes, I'll be bringing doughnuts too.

Yummy!! Wish you worked with me
:D

I am on nights off & decided to ride up to the local Triumph dealership as they are having a clothing sale (won't pay full price).

So got my leathers/boots etc on..........went out to the bike shed..........& my bike wasn't there!!! :?

My fella had a really early start yesterday & had to collect his truck at 0545hrs. So as my bike had fuel & his didn't he just took it! :evil:

Well he did buy it I suppose. :lol:

Anyway I have been up to the yard today to collect it & it is safely back home.......with empty fuel tank! :lol:

Took a little ride up the twisty Hwy to Penticton and then on to Naramata. Mmmm wine country, picked up three dessert wines at Elephant Island Estate Winery. Off to Blasted Church Estate Winery to grab a few bottles of Reisling. Then finished my trip back to camp with a stop at the Burrowing Owl Estate Winery, grabbed a few bottles of Pinot Gris. Back at camp now enjoying a few fresh cherries before getting dinner started ...

Had a great day out at the Sammy Miller motorcycle museum in Hampshire. It was the first organised Triumph ride in & over 400 triumphs turned up, from as far away as Holland.

Met the man himself (winner of many TT's, gold medals & innovative motorcycle designer). He shookl my hand twice + took me by the arm to show me around.........what a splendid old gent.
That was even after I made the mistake of calling an Ulsterman Irish! (Let's NOT start that debate).

Great weather, lovely people & only 15 miles from home! :D. :D

This morning I filled out payroll paperwork for my new job... Not only am I a Firefighter/EMT for my township, but I'm now in training as a police dispatcher for the village in which I reside. So very excited and happy!!

Cheers,

Congrats, Loonette!

Got home last night after a weekend away... first bike trip w/my hubby. Son stayed home with our pets so it was just the two of us on our bikes. Left Saturday morning, about a 3 hour ride to our destination on the Columbia River. Came home yesterday afternoon with a short stop at Grand Coulee Dam. Might do it again next weekend!

I had a big box show up to my door this morning. After much frustration I finally have a seat for my Magna. Its a saddleman double bucket foam on a stock pan with custom textile cover. Unlike the messed up Saddleman seat I tried about a week ago this fits like a glove.
1984 Honda Magna 700, 1987 CBR1000F, 1991 Nighthawk 750, 1994 FZR600, and for the dirt 1995 KTM 300 EXC and finally a 1986 KX500

Congrats Loonette!!! :thumbsup:

Today was a gorgeous day in southern England. :mrgreen: However, because the air conditioning wasn't working properly in our building I sat at work in about +30°C temperatures. I was nearly sick! :shock:

Nice part of WA to be riding in, if you went north to the border, you could have said hi to me in Osoyoos BC...

The Grande Coulee has a great laser light show that explains a whole lot about the columbia basin and life in the area...

Went for breakfast with new friends before they rode home from Osoyoos. Just before I turned into the street to head back to the camp site, I decided to take a run up to the Anarchist Mountain viewpoint.

About a half an hour after I took this picture, there was a fatal accident at this view point. Two people died when they struck the no post that protects the pull out. Looks like a caged going to quick in the corner couldn't hold his line and nailed the no post. Thank goodness there was no bike involved. Bikers and cyclists are always stopped in that viewpoint...

Great photo Doug, maybe the driver got distracted by the amazing view. Glad you got away before accident. RIP

I went for a ride with my fella this evening. First time (cos of work shifts) that we have been out together since weekend away, 2 wks ago.

Rode to pub that old time biker mates frequent. Met up with quite a few folk that we hadn't seen for ages. :lol:

Rounded it off with a steak dinner, then tootled home. :D

Yes, it loads quicker except for the respond page, kinda freezes up until all of the font "colours" are loaded. (Might want to fix that misspelling :twisted: )
