Check out the Blog Archives to read about our cross country motorcycle road trip from MA to CA this summer. We attended the Annual 2011 National Women On Wheels® Ride-In in San Jose CA. Then we just rode. We traveled over 11,000 motorcycle miles in what ever direction we wanted to go. We visited friends and family, saw the country, met some amazing people. We made memories we'll never forget. These memories are what THIS BLOG is made of! Enjoy them while we make MORE memories worthy of posting here for your enjoyment.

GWRRA Ride To Quabbin Reservoir

Lisa and Buffy attended a GWRRA (Gold Wing) ride with me and Cooper on the Sunday of their recent visit.  We went to the Quabbin Reservoir in Western MA.  


It was a chilly ride.  We bundled both dogs up a bit and set out to the meeting place to meet the other riders.  We got there just in time to leave.  It was good to see some of the folks in this group.  I haven't seen them all year since I had been traveling.


The ride was LONG - CHILLY - FUN (for the most part) - Enjoyable because we were riding together with our girls Lisa and Buffy.  It was great to see them in my rear view mirror.


When we arrived, there were a lot more bikes there from other groups.  


There was also a collection of show cars... 








THEN not too long later a whole bunch of Corvettes came rolling in!  What a busy day it was there.














We walked to the top of a hill where there was a tower.  We didn't go to the top of the tower but the view a the top of the hill was really nice even so.  Fall colors were really coming out.  
















When we left as a group to head home, Lisa rode for just a short distance with us then headed toward Maine with a wave.  I rode most of the way with a group that kept getting smaller and smaller until it was only me and some folks that live a few towns from me.  

Cooper and I were really chilled by the time we got home.  Neither of us were shivering, but we were cold.  We both crawled under blankets and stayed there all night.  My skin was cold for hours.  Cooper just wanted to sleep.  We were both really tired, so we hung out together sharing blankets and talking to Lisa on line.  What a nice end to the day.
