Only 2 days left 'til MAWMR

Only two days left before I pack up my stuff and head to MAWMR--Mid-Atlantic Women's Motorcycle Rally. The goal is to raise money for the Susan Komen foundation. I've always gone because both my mom and my aunt are survivors and now I can go for myself too. Of course I didn't make it last year because I was still recovering from my breast cancer surgery. I've made wonderful friends that attend and I can't wait to hook up with them all again.

Here's a picture of my motorcycle as it sits in the garage.


 From the back


And what motorcycle photo would be complete without the helmet with the requisite stickers!




I'm leaving Thursday morning at 5 a.m. and riding for 13 hours straight through to Gettysburg PA. I prefer to ride alone as I've had bad experiences riding with others! I hate to say it but most women that I know can't stay in the "saddle" that long. I'm not in to taking long breaks or eating full course meals on the rode. It tires me out. A 13 hour trip doesn't need to take two days!

I don't know how much sewing I'll get done before I leave but I do have a sock hanging the knitting machine that's calling my name!

  1. Have a marvelous time and be safe. Brings me back to my days of attending Lake George's Americade Motorcycle Rally. Unlike you I was a passenger, my husband at that time kept trying to persuade me that I needed my own motorcycle... but was too much of a scaredy kat.

    So ride on Ms. Diva....
