Well... It's no longer Adventures of a Harley Chic Rider...

We traded my V-Rod in last year, 2011, for what you see in my pic to the left: Yamaha FZ6-R. I LOVE it! His name is SPARTACUS I think I'll change my post titles to: Adventures of a Biker Chic!

I haven't really ridden a whole lot in the past 2.5 yrs. I wrecked my V-Rod in August 2010. Not too much damage on the bike... On me however, was a total different monster. I tore up my left knee and shoulder. I didn't...

Adventures of a Harley Chic Rider

A lot has happened since my last post. I fell off the PNWRiders wagon for a long time.

My VROD, I named her Vida (Spanish for life), had to have tranny and engine rebuild this past Summer. She was in the shop all riding season. The tranny and engine failed because of a defective manufactured part in the tranny. Basically, shards of metal were thrown into the engine via oil pump. Imagine that! All the bearings got eaten up.

She was back on the road long enough for me...

Father's Day Weekend Weather

Posted 06-12-2008 at 11:17 AM by LadyGladiator

Hah.... I am unable to ride probably for another month.... If figures the weather would get nice just to taunt me.

I guess I'll just have to stare at the blue sunny sky from afoot.

My bike is beginning it's repair process at the shop this week. I'm healing at a nice rate. All I have left of my open wound on my knee is the really red tissues that are still building. My left ankle is coming along nicely from the torn ligaments. My right thumb on the other hand...

Adventures of a Harley ChicRider

Posted 03-24-2008 at 07:06 PM by LadyGladiator

Today I ventured out alone on the roads to an appt I had in Federal Way. I rode from Tacoma.

It was beautiful out today. I loved how those great big puffy clouds created shade for my eyes at the right times so I didn't have to worry about being blinded by the sun... [long story why I didn't have my shades on].

I made sure to have my hi-beams on to be more visible. I saw several other riders out today. I got lots of waves/smiles/head nods/hellos. I love the camaraderie...

Two weeks in the shop

Posted 03-17-2008 at 09:24 AM by LadyGladiator

It's time to get my VROD back. They've held it hostage long enough.... It figures the shop wouldn't carry the parts needed for repairs and have to special order them.

I don't mind riding bitch (2 up) with Paul. The part I do mind is the feeling that my helmet is going to fly apart from him going so fast my whole body shudders and my flesh feels like it's coming off and getting my 455 soaking wet because someone didn't pack the rain gear in his backpack like he said he suggested....

DOL debacle

Posted 03-06-2008 at 05:18 PM by LadyGladiator

I will admit I was stupid for not having my checkbook or cash on hand...

However, not knowing that all DOL facilities do not take debit/credit cards is a valid thing.

It's stupid they don't take debit/credit cards.

I had never experienced this before when visiting DOL for anything. Maybe back then I carried a checkbook?? I don't remember anymore.

I was going to take care of some DOL stuff. After arriving to...

Today Paul & I went and got our hairs cut. We rode over to the hair place... Where our friend Myong works. The sun felt so good on my face and the heat through my leathers. It was a calm ride and the traffic moved smoothly. It was funny because on our way out we hit every red light between Sprague & Bridgeport on S 12th St. It gave me a chance to work the brakes and the clutch [the friction zone is my best friend LOL]. We weren't sure what side of Bridgeport the hair place was at because...
