So, Cliff's been talking about selling our Honda
Yep, Cliff has been talking about selling our Gold Wing.
Every time we watch news on TV, somebody has gotten hurt or killed on a motorcycle.
Everywhere we go, by car or motorcycle, we seem to see motorcycle wrecks.
Our son was injured riding his motorcycle.
I've always been a little spooked, riding. But I have a blast anyhow, and it's the only way Cliff is interested in traveling just for the sake of traveling (I do love road trips). So I asked him why he would want to sell it. We haven't had any close calls; Cliff handles the 'Wing well since he started working out. I asked him if he feels in control when we're riding, and his answer was yes.
He says his biggest fear is that he would get me injured, because he isn't sure he could handle that.
Well, I just bought biker boots this summer, and new chaps; I hate to waste money. I don't think we're ready to quit yet.
In a couple of years, perhaps we will be. But we need to make another trip or two to Branson. We still need to trailer the Honda out to Colorado and ride in the mountains.
See, most of the motorcycle deaths you read or hear about happen in big cities or on the Interstate. Or after dark when deer are crossing the roads. These are situations we avoid like the plague.
So Cliff agreed we should at least keep "Our Blue Heaven" at least one more year, and give it our best.
Pray for us that we have made the right decision; I believe we have.
But if something should happen to me while we're riding, please remind Cliff that I was the one who wanted to keep the Gold Wing.
