Stopping by a new park model..

I know everyone doesn't hold the overwhelming enthusiasm for the ride of the new bike like I do, but again today that was most of what I was doing...  Riding another 50 or so miles around town at 50 miles an hour or less.

I really don't think it would hurt anything to go faster than that, but perhaps the city founding fathers wouldn't approve...  Anyway taking it easy while things set in isn't the worst plan...

I rode over to the West end of town and past a restaurant we want to go to tomorrow.  I didn't know exactly where it was, but finally spotted it after riding right past the place.

I returned to the motorcycle shop and inquired about an accessory power socket.   Honda doesn't include this socket for some reason... Its under $40 but they choose to save that little bit of money...  But my dealer didn't have the part...  They told me to order it myself.....  Nicely of course...

After that I ended up in the Valle Del Oro RV park where I rode around some and then stopped by our friends Keith and Andy's new to them park model...  They purchased it at the end of last season, but didn't get to occupy it until the old owner left for the season..  We were gone from Arizona by then..

So we renewed our friendship briefly as they looked over the new Honda..  And then I got a tour thru their new digs...  Andy is another quilter, and she has an area in the Arizona room where she has her sewing  machines and an office all set up...  Another utility room has the ironing board and her stackable washer and dryers, cupboards line the walls... She is in the sewing business more effectively than she was before in their 5th wheel...  She was quite happy about it as well..

Back home, Loyce arrived from her shopping afternoon, and we decided to go back over to Fuddruckers for a burger, since we had both skipped lunch..  The place was packed as they had all the TVs on the Packer vs Viking game..  The line was out the door just to order, but we hung in there and eventually got a table..

Another day in the winter life...  It is to be back down near freezing again tonight...

  1. Fuddruckers sure sounds good, glad you are putting some miles on your new bike. Enjoy!

  2. Looking forward to dinner tonight with you guys. Would you please send the cold back to Kansas.

  3. Sounds like a great day, back when I had a motorcycle I loved crusing around. As for the cold, you can send your cold up here to Chicago, for us it's a heat wave! :)

    Have a great Sunday!


  4. Fudd's is the one burger joint we don't have here in the Palm Springs area - at least I haven't found it yet, that's too bad.

    Glad to see you taking it easy on that bike as you get used to it. It's going to be a sweet ride back home that's for sure. Romeo's Riders are now going to have to make you a 'full-patch' member for sure.
