TBT to every August from 2011 to 2016 where @stevegraphery and I participated in the Subaru 24 hr cycling challenge to raise funds for Casas for kids fund. All the money raised goes directly to CASAs for Kids Fund. CASA volunteers (Court Appointed Special Advocates) are special and dedicated volunteers that take time out of their busy lives to enrich the lives of abused and neglected children caught up in the legal system. These volunteers are appointed by judges to watch and advocate for abused and neglected children. They ensure they don't get lost in the overburdened legal and social service system, or languish in inappropriate group or foster homes. They stay with each case until its closed and the child is placed in a safe, permanent home. Volunteers provide services that include speaking up in court for the benefit of the children they oversee, and inspiring growth in education, arts, and development. Above all, they are advocates for the children, who are so vulnerable and easily overlooked by society. Each and every one of those years Steve captained a team, and for 5 of the years his team raised the most funds. Because Steve was leaking the teams I raised the funds for both of us, and every year family and friends have under my name including 2016 where together you all donated $1200. It's Steve's turn to be a grand champ! Click the link in my profile to donate. No amount is too small!
These two. We had so much fun catching up last night. Do you think you could live and work on the road full time? It sounds like a life of adventure, but do you really think you’d be able to do it? Sash runs her business @toomuchtinawebdesign as she travels around the country. She’s so full of life and adventure it’s infectious! Love you girlie!! #Repost @toomuchtinawebdesign with @get_repost
One aspect of travel I ❤️ is seeing friends around the country.
Road Beagle Scout and I met up with Toby of @ridelikeagirldesigns and had a wonderful time. 🐕❤️👯 We had cupcakes and egg rolls and Toby even whipped up a hot dog for the road beagle.
However, I do believe that Scout was unimpressed with our shenanigans. 🤦😉🐕
Every time I see Toby I wish we could have more time together. One day. . . hopefully soon.
Love you Toby! 💋💋💋
When I first fell in love with you, I fell in love with your passion for adventure. Although I've grown to love you for a 1,000 other reasons, the sense of adventure is still at the core.
Thank you for still taking me on adventures, teaching me new things & showing me new places. 💕🏍💋 Thank you for the photo & finding the best twisties @kkubota
Wow!!! What a beautifully insane weekend we had. First we let go of our Continental GT tracker and then we completed something that was 4 years (!) in the making.
Since Yamaha released their "urban bobber", the Bolt, in 2014, we have been obsessed with this bike. We both have a history with the Yamaha XS 650 and we could see from the start how the Bolt could take the XS650's place and end up being a cult bike too.
This weekend, the motorcycle stars were aligned just right for us, everything fell into place and we are now the proud owners of 2 Yamaha Star Bolts, which will add another layer of experience to our motorcycle life.
Longer distances and Interstate riding will be a lot less fatiguing now.
Olive and Emilie, our trusted RE Classic 500's, will continue to travel with us. The trailer is customized and set up for them and we never know what terrain we encounter when we are out exploring and these bikes ride well on almost every surface. ***********************************
We have been getting a few questions regarding our ambassadorship with Royal Enfield North America and decided to announce on our social media that a couple of weeks ago, we have resigned from our function as "official Royal Enfield Southwest Regional Brand Ambassadors". We had fun doing it, but decided that we want to shift our focus more to our own small business and the local motorcycle community.
Okay then, meet:
Bonnie & Clyde
our, to us, new Yamaha Bolts. Following Yamaha's slogan "We built it, you make it your own", we can't wait to modify them a little and add our personal touch.
We are so stoked, there are just no words for it 😃😁😎
Cashed in our change jar for an Amazon gift card and picked up two bluetooth headsets for our helmets! Only briefly tested them today before the sky turned ugly and we had to head home. Need to make a few tweaks but I think this will work much better than shouting at each other over the bikes. Lol.
