Texas Hill Country Wildflower Motorcycle Day Ride

Janet and I needed to get away, so last Monday we went riding in the hill country to see all the wildflowers. The wildflowers are really pretty this year because of the wet and cold winter we have had. It was nice to finally get out with Janet on the new Goldwing. Janet likes it better than the old bike because it is a lot more comfortable (i.e. nice big cushy seat and backrest). I’m hoping Janet will be a little more willing to ride more often and further on this bike. We have talked about riding to Arizona sometimes. I was hoping that we could ride to Mount Rushmore this September. Janet didn’t get to go on that ride and it was a fun ride and she really wished that she could have gone. We will see. Below are some pictures from our ride last Monday ride.

Janet in the Bluebonnets at Buchanan Lake. Ain’t she cute?

We enjoyed that ride so much that we are going on a three-day trip Monday thru Wednesday. The ride will be about 570 mile thru some really scenic hill country roads and again the wild flowers should be really good again. It will be the first time we have traveled over night on the new bike.

Ride safe.

  1. Let her build her endurance and confidence a little at a time.

    • Thanks for stopping by. Janet does ride on many long rides (1000+ miles) and has for years but not as often as me. She likes riding when the other wives ride too. I am going on a 5000+ ride in July with my buddies but their wives aren’t going. Janet would go if she wouldn’t be the only girl :-(.

  2. Looks like it was a great ride.
    You need to talk to your ride buddies. good to have the wives along. My wife will still just do very short rides. I must get a more pillion comfortable bike to encourage her.

    • One of the reasons I got the Goldwing was so Janet could stay in the saddle longer. The Nomad seat was small and hard… I do need to work on the other wives… We do have a good time when the wives are along…
