Counting Miles - Two Wheel Challenge


  No matter where he is going my husband, Charlie, counts miles. I think this is reminiscent of his bicycle racing days or his addictive personality, but no matter where he picked it up, Charlie is always racking his brain about how many miles he has put under his belt. It is personal pride in the thing he loves which is an inspiring thing to watch for many of us. When he decided to enter the Peaks to Plains summer long mileage contest, where the winner received a motorcycle, I thought oh great... here we go just put the alcoholic right in the bar why don't ya!

  He was concerned he wouldn't be able to do well considering we were getting married this summer and that combined with being out of the country for the honey moon would put him 3 weeks behind everyone, especially Louise. Louise and Charlie are one in the same and that's why I love them both. They both count miles, they both like to win, and they both entered the contest. Louise was his biggest concern right up to the end. They would text each other trying to get the other to spill the beans as to where their mileage was at. There was also a lot of social media stalking and often I would hear Charlie utter phrases like "Louise went to Whyoming that's at least 350 miles where she is round trip,, crap I'm headed to Kansas see you later!" The hilarious part, upon talking to her and her boyfriend Dan, is that they were having the same conversations at there house.

  They knew that this is what the competition would come down to. Two friends and a little friendly competition. The rest of us would joke that there was a sleeper in the competition that was going to clock in with like 25k and blow them both out of the water. 3rd place went to this amazing guy who never rode a motorcycle before this summer. He entered the world of motorycycles hitting just over 9k miles. Drum roll ...... In second play came Louise, Ohio Dirt, with about 11.5k. Leaving first place to Harris Bigweather... hah the twist Charlie didn't even place....
Ok I kid... In first place with 13.2k Mr. Charles Weisel took the first play motorcycle. A brand new, barely functioning mini bike chopper with a springer front end! His next trip will be a coast to coast on a Mini Bike!

  My hat goes off to you kids! Next summer I will have an odometer and access to sabotage Charlie's bikes, here comes some more competition your way!

Monkeying around in the snow

After watching Flat Out Friday live streaming last night, I think I was inspired to get outside and ride.  I carved a track in the backyard with my snowthrower, put my studded tire on the Evil Monkey, and had a blast.  My daughter took the riding photos.

Mama Tried 2018 - Part 8

The Mama Tried Motorcycle Show isn't just a bike show, it's a full weekend experience.  When you consider the show itself, Flat Out Friday, a visit to the Harley-Davidson Museum, multiple concerts, and ice riding on Slippery Sunday (weather permitting... and it did not cooperate last year), you really can't ask for more.  I'm bummed I'm missing it this year but I hope everyone that attends has a blast.  The last few years will be hard to beat, but the show seems to get better every year.  Have fun everyone!  I'll leave you with some photos of One (Metallica tribute) and Weedeater at last year's show.

These guys were so good.

Pushin' and shovin' in the pit (Rave security was not amused):

Weedeater was fun to photograph.  The facial expressions are fantastic.

Bottle's empty?  Show's over.

Have fun at Mama Tried this weekend!!!
