Born to be Wild

 

Move over Peter Fonda, I'm climbing aboard.  And  I'm not riding Bitch.

People can separate us real  bikers from those wannabe's by terminology used. Us  Real Bikers use words like "shovel head", "knuckle head" "pan head" . We put all of our stuff in a checker board pattern hobo bag.  We ride with the wind with nothing in our way but the open road.

Wannabe's use terms like "Road Glide", "Electra Glide Classic", "Touring Bike", "Geezer Bike".  They use "pizza boxes and tour pack racks.  They use Garmin GPS units..

I ride a "Street-glide-HEAD"

My question is how is this "real biker" going to get all this shit in my little hobo bag?

plus the rest of my stuff....tent, sleeping bag, underwear, socks, shirts, tooth paste, razor.  The pile is going to get bigger as the week moves on.

What Katherine said.

You'll figure it out. This isn't your first trip. Your first trip being this old, but not your first trip.

We'll miss you at Cancun. Have a terrific time. Hug to you and K. :)

I had a friend who used to ride with her hubby. They made the trip from here to Sturgis one time, and she managed to pack her laptop with her at all times!

Bond said...

As long as you do not put one of those two wheeled trailers that look like the trunk of a car on your bike, all is well...

Hell, ditch the underwear and razor and you should be good.

Mel said...

Oh! OH! Swing off and make a trip through...dangit.....

I think that's what it's called.

Very awesome......
