And so it goes...

Well here's the latest addition to this family. Ya I know I thought we weren't going to go with any more motorcycles but.. long pause. Quote, "this is such a good deal I can't hardly let it go" Unquote. It all started last night as Sweetman was surfing the net of course looking for any deals of any kind but mostly in the section of bikes for sale, motorcycle bikes that is. When this add popped up with a picture of this bike. He says I gotta call on this one, it's a good deal. Before I knew it he was throwing on his coat and out the door.

I saw it myself tonight for the first time when we went to pick it up and I have to admit I was a bit excited. Just seeing another Gold Wing brought back a bunch of happy memories of traveling with Sweetman on our old Wing a few short years ago.
We loaded it up on the trailer in brisks winds making it feel more like fall then spring but the people we bought it from sent us off with well wishes of warmer weather to break soon so we can start riding it in comfort.


Of course on the way home we stopped at one of the more famous old time diners for a bite to eat and we both enjoyed the warmth and good sandwiches.











Then home to unload the new toy. The poor thing needs a good bath and some sprucing up but you can believe before this baby hits the road Sweetman will have her all clean and shinning like new. Anyone have any good ideas on what to name it??? You gotta have a name don't ya know.

I was about to say I couldn't think of a name until I saw Mari's comment. How about SpringRay?

Cheri said...

I like SpringRay- what a fun name!
I'm sure you will both have a lot of fun with it.
I'm jealous that you ate at Rosie's Diner- we keep saying we want to go there and it never happens!

Thanks for the suggestions, we will ponder it.

Sandra said...

SpringRay and AngelWings, they're both neat names.

Now that looks like a big motorcycle to me! But I don't know a lot about them. I know you two will enjoy the new toy.
