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.

Photo Bomb

One of my Favorite flowers is a Lilac.  The smell is intoxicating to me.  My daughter left some on my dining room table when she came to feed Cooper for me.

I couldn’t help taking pictures of them so I could post them on FB.  And Look who photo bombed my picture.


Cooper always chases cats out of our yard.  

Any time he sees a cat walking around he goes after it as fast as he can, growling and barking.

Every now and then a cat will be minding it’s own business and our of Cooper’s sight.

These cats know better than to get his attention, so they remain very still until they can make their get-away.

Cooper was just wandering and sniffing and enjoying the spring time.

As the cat laid on the swing set, enjoying the spring time.

And Cooper didn’t suspect a thing.

Mercedes Benz

When we left my car at the garage, our loaner car was a 2017 Mercedes Benz.  

Not too shabby.

Cooper didn’t like it too much because there was a console between us.

So I let him lay across my lap while I drove.

He was fine with that so it was really not so bad.  

I had this car for a week… for free… 

Does he look upset?

Garage In RI

I had to bring my car in for service recently.

The garage is a Mercedes Benz garage with tile floors and everything is so shiny.

It’s a very comfortable place to hang out and wait.

And every now and then there is a little friend to meet. 

This little guy was just Cooper’s size.

Minute Clinic

This is how we spent the morning of Mother’s Day.

Yup… I was sick and we went to the Minute Clinic in CVS.

I appreciated not having to go all the way to the doctor.  Good experience.

Claw Toy

My daughter is a nut for Llamas.  

One day we had a joke about a leopard print Llama.

The other day we went to Wal*mart and she saw one in the claw machine.

Two tries… YUP— TWO and she brought it home.  Lucky Llama!

Vanson Leathers - A Cool Place To Pose

This was a cool display set up outside the wall of death.

Nice place to have Cooper pose for a  few pictures.

Now that I look at the pictures I kind of wish I had put him up on the bike that’s on the wall.

If we ever go see Rhett Rotten again I’m going to see how well I can get him to pose up there.

Vanson Leathers - Posing With Rhett Rotten

After the show we got to go inside the Wall Of Death.

It was really cool to see it from this perspective.

Rhett is really happy to spend time with his fans.

Cooper wasn't being very cooperative
He takes pictures, makes sure everyone is happy with the pictures they get.

Sets up for the best shot he can provide.

Hugs anyone who wants a hug.

Chats with anyone wanting to chat. 

A great people pleaser and a pleasure to have met him.

Vanson Leathers - Wall Of Death

Sometimes to tell a story, it’s best to find a video to go along with the pictures.

You see us watching, but without the action you don’t get the full effect.

Cooper had to deal with some feelings during this, and he did well learning to let go of fear and stay in my arms.

We are far left in this picture

The video chips on this entry are not from the show we attended, but you tube clips I found that show the talent Rhett Rotten likes to share with us.

Vanson Leathers - The Tour

At Vanson Leathers open house, we took a tour of the factory.

The people got to see a lot… but Cooper just got his picture taken by everyone who had a camera or cell phone.

So… here are the pictures.   

Cool looking factory as you can tell.

Vanson Leathers - Ken Doesn't Fit!

After Cooper got out of the race car featured on the last two days of this blog, Ken got in.

Or should I say… he TRIED to get in.

He didn’t really fit all that well.

So what makes this story better?

Put Cooper in the car with Ken!

YUP!  Much better!

Vanson Leathers - Race Car

The race car from yesterday’s blog post was so much fun to pose in.

Cooper knows exactly what to do.

I pose him and he lust holds the pose till I tell him we’re done.

Or make him pose a different way.

He keeps at it till I’m done.

People love it!

Believe me… I wasn’t the only person taking pictures.
