Today a few of us LOH gals met at our local HD and took a nice ride, ending up at Monadnock H-D (in Swanzee) for their first Heels & Wheels event. I wasn't planning on putting my bike in as a contestant, but it ended up being in anyway. There were a total of 10 bikes and wait for it, wait for it, well, it didn't come in first. In fact, I'm probably the only one that voted for it. It was a lousy day for showing the color as it was overcast. It was still pretty bright, but in those conditions it just looks a root beer color, not the fiery red with gold/green/orange/blue sparkles in the paint. Heck, who am I kidding, there was no way I was winning with Michelle's bike there. Hers is a beautiful purple and black with a mural painted on the fairing depicting some of the cross-country trips she has ridden. We had a great time anyway.
My bike is far right - Michelle's is the purple/black one in the middle
Other bikes in the contest. I figured if Michelle didn't win, the white bike would. It also changes colors with light pinks and turquoise undertones. Plus she had some customer pinstripes too.
Darlene had her trike there too (and that is her at the table).
Here is Michelle with her trophy
And the 4 of us mugging around
h, and I met a Facebook friend. I don't remember why I accepted her friend invite, but she and i have been "friends" for a couple of years. This is the first time we have met. She rides the Spyder trike - she is sitting behind, second from the right
Great day for a ride and the event gave us a destination that had some great scenery to ride thru to get there.
