I bought a new (to me) bike this morning. It's a 59 Western Flyer "Golden Flyer". Dig the "dual headlights" on the "chrome tank" or the "springer front" suspension. Lol

Those style of bikes have come back into fashion...they call them beach cruisers....or just cruisers...

You scored on that one. It looks to be in good condition.

I did a partial detail on my car. I'll finish it tomorrow. Going on a weekend road trip with a 9 year old boy sure does have its drawbacks...dirty, messy car. It was a fun trip though. I took him to Kamloops to visit with his cousin who is 4-1/2 years... and the new baby who is 3-1/2 months.

Cleaned up kitchen after breakfast. Told Jesus "thanks" for the sunshine on my day off.
Ran my John Deere all day running sand and gravel to finish a "trail" of steps around my deck to the back yard. Pulled weeds and slautered blackberry bushes to clear a spot for a garden. Took 1200 mg ibuprofen..... Drinking Pinot noir now.

Met up with members of BMOC (British Motorcycle Owner Club of BC http://www.bmoc.ca/ ) at their weekly gathering at the Big 6 greasy spoon in Burnaby. Had a nice breakfast and then came home as no ride outs were planned. Seem like a nice bunch of old to middle aged farts, I should fit in well as would both Doc and Blues. One of the them rode in on another '98 Trophy, though his was grey and a 900 CC model. Tomorrow I think I will ride to work.

Today I rode the Sunshine Coast from the Langdale Ferry Terminal, up to Port Mellon mill, then through upper Gibsons Landing, into Sechelt via Roberts Creek, to Egmont then for coffee at Earls Cove and back to Langdale to catch the Ferry back to the Lower Mainland. A fun trip and my GoPro actually lasted the entire trip into Egmont. I will post videos and a write up later after I edit a bit, til then here's a Bunny.

Rode to church with hubby, then with three other friends up Chuckanut Drive... Twisty and scenic view of the sound. What a gorgeous day we had! Oh, and lost my footing in a gravel parking lot and dumped my bike over while trying to back it out and around. Hurt my pride, not the bike. Glad my pride's not very big or it would have been a big injury! :oops:

Monica, I love the Chuckanut, especially after the algae disappears off of the pavement, it builds up a bit during the winter and is gone after a couple of
warm days and lots of bikes...
Missed getting down to La Conner for the tulips this year, funds are running in the red zone so travel is limited...

Hey Doug! Looks like you have the same bike as my husband! I LOVE that color!

I hear ya on the dollars and cents. I don't think I'll ever be able to retire.
We've been talking about making a trip up your way. I still haven't bothered with my enhanced DL; I guess I'd better get busy!

Mother's day dinner. It's been raining and hailing and snowing for the past week here so no riding. How've you all been?

Weather has been PERFECT, but since last Sunday I have to keep my leg elevated. Tore my calf muscle in a couple of spots. In a walking boot for at least 2weeks. My mind is younger than my body apparently. Running is truly for youngsters :baby:
