A motorcycle in our future?

I know I have a lot of Christian friends praying that we won't get a motorcycle... I think it's the same Christian friends who prayed that I wouldn't get a horse. 

And I know I have one atheist friend who is hoping and wishing we don't get a motorcycle.

Life is not safe, and we will not get out of this world alive (in the flesh, anyhow).

I love the fact that there are people who worry about my safety; since my mom died, it's hard to find that kind of concern.

But folks, I am going to die sometime.  I'd rather die from a motorcycle wreck, or from being tossed from a horse, than to suffer the living death that occurs in nursing homes.

Cliff's tractor is probably going to an acquantaince. 

(An aside to my children, so they know what's going on.... it's Don Novak's twin brother.)

And we will probably end up with the motorcycle you see in the above picture.

Now stop worrying.

You GO girl !!  Bill says..... ATTA GIRL!!! (he likes your attitude) He also said you're a kick in the pants. .....Cliff, he didn't say kick her in the pants!
Donna, I agree with you 100% (but then I'm a motorcycle fan too!)  Nance

Here's your atheist friend again!  Dying is easy, Mosie -- suffering is hard.  Spine, head and neck injuries can really F you up for a long time.  I worry about you being on that thing.

It's a beautiful bike!  I'm not into them now, but loved them when I was younger.  this one is like the Cadillac of rides, looks like it would be very comfy to ride on.  If I were brave, I'd ask for a ride.  Fortunately, you're too far away for me to get brave enough to ask.  Have a ball, you two!  You only live once.  Blessings, Penny

My husband always says..."When it's my time to go, it's my time to go."  Nothing anyone can do about it. I think God wants us to enjoy life and enjoy the things he can provide for us...even a motorcycle. All you can do is be safe and learn how to handle it...it isn't like you will be racing it down the freeway.  Enjoy, be safe and live a long long time!

While I am scared to death of motorcycles, I am all for those who wish to ride them!  You only live once, and like you said, we all have to go sometime!  Might as well go doing what you enjoy, than sitting around doing nothing.. just waiting to draw that last breath!
I say "Go for it!"

You can stay at home and spend your life taking no chances and die. Or you can go out and live...and die. Don't die, but live!

Its a beaut, but I am one of those who worry about motorcycles and horses. Oh well have fun you two. Paula

Mo, it's a beauty and I think  you should go for it.  We only live once and life is no fun if you don't take risks.  And one thing for sure, you're not going to die one second before God says it's time!..........Love, Sam
