Proud to be an American

Bikes all lined up and ready to go!

(This is my hubbies bike)

I am so proud to be an American and have the privilege to ride in our local July 4th parade along with 175 other Harleys. In the first group the front riders are a group that Honors our Veterans carry many of the old Military Flags, in the next group are 50 bikes each one carrying a flag of each of our 50 States, I got to carry Kansas, then a round of of the rest of the bikes all with many American Flags. This was really fun to see all the people along the road side clapping and saluting as we slowly rode by. Of course there was the fun side too as you will notice my cute Red, White & Blue pigtails that I made for my helmet! Hooray for the Red, White and Blue.....

Hi Joy! Gosh it was so much fun getting to meet you today in Walsenburg!! I hope you will call if you have some time going back our way- would love to get with you!

See you are Harley lovers!! I have some great friends that love their Harleys! Lucresha can't hold up a motorcycle anymore so she got a trike. She is coming up from New Mexico some time next week to take me on a mountain ride that she has long promised! I am looking forward to it!!
