Looking at new Harleys but settling for gloves.....

I was out and about today as it turned out sunny by afternoon..  Not warm, as I think the high was something like 44 degrees but if you sat in the front of the pickup truck in the sun, the cab warmed up quite a bit..

When we come back for Christmas, it is always the first order of business to go pay the property taxes on our house...  Kansas makes the darned things due on December 20th...  I never understood that, why 5 days before Christmas...  Just to make sure you won't have any money left over for the Holidays?

Well anyway, I didn't have the bill until we went thru the mail this morning looking for it, and once found I had to drive right over to the County office building and pay up....  But I did pretty good this year because I was three days early...

After that bit of unpleasantness, I stopped by my DIL Melissa's place to see where she had purchased my scooter riding gloves as I needed to exchange them....  They were HD branded so I knew they came from HD, but which one as we have several here in town...  The KC area anyway, but no they came right here from Olathe and she said they were purchased under my name..

Well that made the whole thing a lot easier, as I drove over there and did the exchange in about 15 minutes.... But then got hooked up listening to a salesman on the way out.....  Of course its hard not to go look at the new motorcycles...  And I could fill the lot with new ones to ride on each different day..... snap out a it Rod, that's not even close to realistic...

Well it was sunny and nice and I was out and about, got a Wendy's and some gas for the pickup and drove it around for the first time in six weeks...  As it started right up because I use the little Wal Mart battery tenders on everything...

Otherwise it was just the normal day here in Kansas....  Winter life here is sorta boring.....

  1. More raining moving in tonight so you aren't missing beautiful weather here. Maybe that'll make you feel better.

  2. Too bad you didn't leave that dealership with new gloves and a 'whole new hog'!!

  3. Rod - There is nothing wrong with dreaming, but a new Harley would look nice under the Christmas tree!

  4. I'd love to have a new Harley and I don't even know how to ride one!
