Cruise Footrests

Published by under Uncategorized

A week after Beto and I went to SPI, I ordered Kuryakyn’s part #4073, a set of  cruise pegs that are supposed to alleviate my hip cramps and pains.

So the next day we got up early, had breakfast at Judy B’s and headed on out to South Padre Island, or SPI for short, or the Island.  We were happy to be riding the “big highway” and at the same speed.

Riding to Rio Hondo, TX

Published by under Uncategorized

While Robert picked up his motorcycle, I went home to prepare mine for the inaugural ride.  We were both excited.  Who would have known in the morning that we would be getting ready for a big-bike ride?

The Birth Of A Monster

Published by under Uncategorized

The following week, on Saturday, September 19, Robert was visiting me in the Valley.  He had the weekend off from obligations so he got in his truck and went to visit. We went out to eat breakfast and engaged in conversation on the topic of motorcycles.  He had been talking about trading in his 250 for a bigger engine.  He looked at other Hondas, Suzukis, Yamahas, and he liked all of them.  He wanted to wait some time to finish paying for his current bike, and then try to get at least a 900 or bigger.  His golden dream had always been to own a Harley, so I asked him why not get one.

The next day after my arrival in San Antonio, Robert and I went out on our first trip together as bikers.  At the time, Robert had a 250 Honda Rebel that looked like a keychain compared to the Wing.  He was very proud of it, and because of that, it made him feel like it was the biggest motorcycle ever built.

Riding In The Rain

Published by under Uncategorized

The next couple of weeks were somewhat uneventful, taking short trips here and there.  The Texas Rio Grande Valley has an intricate road system that resembles the interior of a honeycomb. There are farm roads to ride for a couple of eternities.
