"MID-LIFE CRISIS!"

by Brenda Nelson September. 13, 2011 3103 views

Last week, I decided that we needed a Honda GoldWing “Trike” (3-wheeled motorcycle) for our day trips with our cameras! I couldn't believe that Larry agreed to my insane idea! I think we must have lost our minds - and I hope that's ALL we lose on it!

We bought this 1989 customized model from a local man who had put 38,000 miles on it, plus every gadget possible - sound system, Garmin GPS, air/heat, leather seating, air suspension system, 2 “trunks”, extra gas tanks, etc. Today, he came by the house to show Larry all the features and details about it's build.

The first time I got on it to cruise around the neighborhood, I was in love! It even has a little leather pouch between my seat and Larry's for my camera!

Taking off for places unknown…

Practicing on the driveway

Previous owner Joe Herrell came by to show us all the custom features that he had installed on the bike

Hitting the road….

Oh my goodness, I did not see this one. We were on vacation on the 13th and, I believe we were sleeping on the ground in the Hoh rainforest. Awesome Brenda. I hope it ends up bringing you here some day.

I think I've seen this bike riding into town on Friday 13 in Port Dover Ontario. "Joe Herrell" without the "Biker" duds....lol Goldwings are impressive looking bikes indeed!
Have you and Larry got your leather's yet?......

Good grief! So now's the point in time where us kids have to start taking care of our reckless parents. "Be Good", "Wear Your Helmets", "Don't speed", "Don't stop for hitchhikers".

Enjoy my friend, They are a BLAST!!!!! One cool thing about a trike is that a distracted photographer riding on the back does not throw of the balance of the trike.
Beautiful, Absolutely Beautiful!!!
