Ground Score!!

I don't know where the time goes. Oh yeah, I remember. It's been a busy, busy week with lots of time spent at this computer (not blogging) and watching it rain outside, which it is doing as I work on this long-overdue post. Lots of camera time, editing, proofing and ordering, my favorite kind of busy-ness.

This morning I managed to get out ralking for an hour before the skies started dripping again. My weekday route takes me across an intersection that is rated one of the most dangerous in our state, and that is without the constant construction work that has dragged on for over a year. This morning the area was littered with broken pieces of motorcycle, a pretty scary sight.

This afternoon as Zeus and I were returning home from dinner I asked him to stop at the scene so I could pick up a piece of the motorcycle, or as the MoneyWalker calls it, a Ground Score. Yup, ten hours later it was still there, a large remnant of a saddlebag from a 2009 Harley-Davidson, complete with a beautiful inscribed reflector. I knew instantly that this would fit on the crossbars of my bike!


Well, what do you think? Kind of classes up the old lady wheels, eh?

No worries. That thing weighs about five pounds. I'm slow enough as it is without adding more poundage. I'm thinking about bolting it to the back of your van.

Now you have me envious, a Harley logo. I have a big collection of car logos found along the curbs and byways of my walks, but no Harley. Seeing your reported carniage reminds me to continue my program of vigilance for cars and bikes durning walking.

MoneyWalker, I left you a message on your blog. The Harley plate is beautiful, not a scratch on it. It belongs in your collection.

Good score but your beautiful bike isn't complete without streamers...what are you thinking going out with a nekid bicycle?

Sharyn, don't give my kids any ideas. They also want to put a basket on it!
