It's been almost a month since school started. On my ride to work everyday, I pass my baby boy (he's 14 years old and in the 9th grade) waiting at the bus stop. He stands there with his friends, (his hoodie pulled up covering his line of vision this morning) and never looks at me. Not a look, a smile, nor a wave. I remember being a teenager and I remember what it was like to have my parents around when I was with my friends but come on!!!! lol Gotta give me props for being on a Ninja right? And... my hair is dyed red to match my bike, (upon my son's request even). Kawasaki calls it Passion Red <3 Embarrassing mom or not, gotta give me props for being on a bike instead of in beat up old Ford Taurus hatchback right? Could be worse... Sigh.. maybe someday I'll get a hint of a wave.
Anyway.... The riding game has been stalemate for quite some time now and it makes me sad. If you are new to the TMW forums let me first say welcome
You're in a great place with a great bunch of people. Second, check out the riding game and play, here's how it works: One guy/gal makes up the next picture challenge, say... your bike next to a dairy cow, the first person to take a pic of their bike with a dairy cow in the frame wins that round and gets to post the next challenge. It's a fun way to stay connected, show off our shiny bikes and gives us an excuse to go out and ride and explore. I remember how much fun my hubby Jack of the Green and I had stalking armored trucks for a pic. We had no luck and somebody else won, but 2 days after the challenge had been met, I just happened to be at the bank teller window on my Shadow and here comes an armored truck to refill an atm. I had to get my phone out and snap a pic, just for self gratification
The current challenge is... you guessed it. 'Your bike with a school bus'. I'll give you a couple days to meet this challenge before I actually stop on my way to work, put my kickstand down and snap a pic of me and my red hair, my pretty Ninja and my mortified baby boy and his friends as the school bus arrives. I'll totally do it. He'll thank you in advance for your participation
We can have a lot of fun posting fall pics before we have to garage our pretties for the winter... boo...
