So kids, thought I'd share a few pics! Took my longest ride ever today (for those of you who way more experienced than me, lol, please don't laugh). I rode exactly 200.4 miles, and most of it was on some great twisty country roads that are pretty popular around here. It was my first time on them, and I totally LOVED them!! So here's a couple of pics, enjoy!

My baby, at my first break...was stinking hot out and I was hungry, so I had to pull out the ol' iPhone and find a place nearby to eat and cool off...



self-portrait...



How awesome is this road? I pulled off to fix my hair, b/c it was driving me crazy so I had to braid it (grrr, long hair is a pain sometimes...)...and I happened to glance back at the road I'd just come down and it was an awesome shot...



And here's some random ones...the views were sooo gorgeous all day, and made me wonder why everyone doesn't want to live in Kentucky, it's so beautiful!!









And me in my helmet, lol, wearing my husband's sunglasses b/c I think I lost mine...these were irritating me the whole day, b/c they just didn't fit right, but during those curves, lol, I forgot all about them....oh, and I think I've decided that my jacket doesn't fit me well enough. Without the liner in it, it just seems too big...so now I've got a great excuse to go buy that leather jacket and pants I've been wanting!! ;)

I had an absolute blast! Although, after about 160 miles, my body was saying it was done, lol...and I was still 40 miles from homes....so I manned up and kept going, lol, like I had a choice....oh, and did I mention it was smoking hot out today? I am so not a fan of getting gross and sweaty, and by the time I got home, it was like 94 and I was soaked. I have got to get a vented jacket, b/c this one is sooooo NOT! ARRRGG!

LOL, I should "let" you have my shirt? I don't think so homeslice, it's my favorite shirt! However, if you were willing to buy it off of me, I could make you a good deal...how about $30 plus shipping? B/c it's worth way more since I've worn it.... ;)

That road looks amazing! I'm so envious!

There's a road around here like that infamously called the spiders web.. I got tempted into running it one day and never again. The way some roads are made around here, and especially that one.. its a death trap for cars, let alone bikes. Wasn't my longest ride i don't think, But it was the most hair raising.

Looks like you are all alone, doesn't your hubby have a bike? Rides are alot more fun and safer with a fellow rider. Looks like a great ride!

Yeah, he's got an R6, he spent the day out dirt-biking with his buddies. lol, I got tired of waiting for him to have time to make a long ride, so I just did it on my own. I've got a few friends around here to ride with, wouldn't mind having more of course, but there's something kinda nice about spending the day alone, stopping when I went, going whatever speed I want, and not worrying about being back at any certain time. I loved it!

I agree it's safer to ride with a buddy, but when I ride alone, which is a lot, I try to be as safe as possible, wear the gear, always have my cell, etc.
