Craziest thing I've done this week,

I got up this morning to find some snow dust on the ground when I
went outside to warm up the truck to go to work. Well turns out I
didn't have the keys (don't ask me why). LOL

Soooo, my Majesty was sitting there (kinda looking at me). I didn't
have a choice as I HAD to get to work. So I bundled up in 2 pairs
of pants, 1 pair of lined chaps, two shirt, two coats, helmet, and
winter riding gloves.

Naturally, she fired right up and the adventure began.

Getting out of the driveway was a little slick but not to bad. I
rode no faster than 30mph all the way to work. Thank goodness that
the cages around me gave me a wide birth and stayed about 2 car
lengths behind me. I was so GRATEFUL for this as I wasn't afraid of
falling I was AFRAID of being ran over.

I only slipped once as the road was not level but I didn't fall. I
moved over to the inside of the lane and all was well again.

Upon getting to work my heart was racing faster than usual but I
guess that is to be expected when one rides in the snow!! It
bothered me to no end that my baby was going to have to sit outside
with rain and more snow yuck continuing throughout the day.

Fortunately I arrived at work early enough that no one else was
here. As any good mother would do, I rode my baby in through the
side door of a 6 story building, past the elevators and into the
back door of my office. <grin>

So there she sits as I write this tale. <smile> She is warm and dry
and waiting patiently for me to finish my day. Of course I'm going
to have to wait until about 5:30 to sneak her out as these doctors
and lawyers who share the building would not appreciate a motorcycle
beging pushed thru the foyer.

Not to mention my boss, but he never goes to the back of the office
anyway, it is just a storage area. Of course today would probably
be the day that he goes back there, I'm hoping this is not the case.

This is my story and I'm sticking to it.

This week?? If this is the craziest thing this week, I'd love to hear some of the crazier things you done in past weeks! :lol: :lol:

Nah, you push her into the middle of the foyer and THEN you crank her like a Harley. As a parting shot you do a burnout NASCAR-style and fill the lobby with smoke, hollering, "High ho Majesty, Away!!" as you ride out the West door into the sun. 8)

If your boss goes back there, you offer to let him ride pillion whilst you do the burnout in the lobby!! :p

This is my story and I'm sticking to it.
You'd better stick to it!! :la:

Well I did get my Majesty out of the office, but not without some help. There is a bathroom door on the other side of the hallway from my office door that I drove my Majesty through. While trying to sneak her back outside I could not clear that stinking (<--pun intended, LOL) bathroom door. A construction worker guy was trying to come down the hallway about that time and ended up picking up the rear of the Majesty and scooting her over so I could clear the door and make my break for the exit.

Boss never did see the Majesty in the back of the office, thank goodness.

Made it home okay, other than freezing my rear end off.

My truck did start this morning and I'm sad to say I was so happy. Roads are slicker today than they were yesterday. Better to leave the Majesty in her warm garage rather than risk damage to her.

Ride Safe and Ride Often,
Jodi

JoJo,

That was a great story...I used to commute by bicycle and once rode the bike down the middle of the factory to where I worked and chained it up...the boss heard about it from someone who had an ax to grind and I got my tail chewed thoroughly...for a safety violation. I thought to myself, "Hey I just rode 10 miles up a busy 4 lane road in 25 degree weather and you're gonna tell me it was dangerous to ride up a 12 foot wide aisle with no people around and no traffic? B***S***!!!" So I am glad your experience was better than mine.
