Last weekend was OBX bike week, my first, at OBX that is. We had 19 in a 3-story cottage on Nags Head. We had meals planned, rides planned, and drinks planned. Here are a few highlights: I had my phone out while riding the bike at 70 miles an hour (ok, sometimes 80, but don't tell mom) down 64 east. All the while looking to the north/northeast at the dark clouds and praying that we didn't hit the storm, Oh, and that I didn't drop my phone. The iPhone should really come with a dummy-cord.
I learned a new drink, the Peppermint Patty. First the chocolate syrup.
Then mix with the Peppermint Schnapps.
Then the best part, I got to "ride" a Harley. Get in the driver's seat, shift through the gears up to 60 mph, and everything. Granted, it was on one of those simulator thingys where the back tire is on a roller ball (what is that contraption called?), but still...I did it! Last September I won the Rider's Edge course at Ray Price at a charity auction. I have yet to actually sign up for the course, but being able to feel the throttle is, I have to admit, addicting!
