not much

refering to not much going on. i try to ride to work everyday, but haven't been out on any big rides lately. the weather seems to be in disagreement with my days off. just like it's supposed to rain on my next three days off. man...i have to get out of the maritimes...ugh.

in other news, i have ordered a backrest and two beanie helmets. the backrest is from Cruiser Backrest and includes the luggage rack. we are going to need that for the trip to Niagara, Ontario next month. speaking of which, our rooms are booked, we are registered and can't wait for the time to come. should be a blast with rides around the area and good times with good people.

the helmets are from Jafrum. I'm kind of iffy about them (size wise that is, not quality). we did the whole head measuring thing and it came out as large for both of us. the return policy is great for them, but that would mean a longer wait to use the helmets. i love my full face Icon, but for short jaunts to work and the store...it's a pain in the ass and takes up a lot of room. i'd still wear the full face on the highway, but around town a beanie would be easier. i'm sure many of you have had the problem of walking around a mall with a full face in hand. people are only made with so many hands.

i have some new pics of the bike that i need to upload and i'll make sure to put one or two up here. you can always check out my pics at my flickr page. the link is on the right side bar.

safe journeys all!

My husband bought him & myself helmet locks that go on our handle bars. We lock our helmets and go do what we need to do. It's only if it rains, that I can't use it (well, I could, but it'd be wet!!lol). I think we paid only about $10 each and got them at the local motorcycle store.

I could look and see who makes them. Well darn, that'd mean a trip on my bike, LOL!!

wow, that would be neat. so, they just attach to the end of the handle bars? you don't have to replace anything?

Biker Betty said...

They attach anywhere on the handle bars (except in the bends) and it comes with all its own hardware. I will get the info for you and post a pic on my website of what it looks like. I'll let you know when I do that.

I acttually don't mind carrying my helmet around, makes for a convenient basket and all purpose carry-all. Think of it as the ultimate man purse, I mean european carry-all.

Giest said...

eep! you just called my helmet a man purse!!!

i do that too, but i've gotten some really strange looks from people that work in the stores. i think they think i'm stealing...or thinking, "look at that guy and his man purse." *shudder*
