Saturday, August 25, 2007

For the most part, stayed at home, and worked on my websites, but went riding at night.

Lisa's finally feeling better now that she's back on her thyroid medicine. So far, her cancer study is negative, but she needs to take another one tomorrow.

But she felt good enough to get on the back of our Harley, and we rode to Hemet for dinner (she wanted Polly's Pies).

On the way back, we were riding through Menifee, along Menifee Rd, and I felt something hit my knee (a thump). I looked down at my lap, and I saw a bat sitting there. I knew it was a bat cause I could see its wings and pointed ears. I brushed it off my lap, and kept riding.

I told Lisa about it and she just burst out laughing.

We took a ride to Carlsbad to get some lunch at the Harbor Fish Cafe.

There were five of us, my wife and I, Stumpy, Greyhound, and Greyhound's buddy Larry. It rained a little on the way down to Escondido along Old Hwy 395. At a stop sign, I looked over to Stumpy and pointed out the dark grey clouds looming ahead. He said, "it'll blow out, let's keep going".

So we kept going. We rode through Harmony Grove and Elfin Forest, and the rain just poured down (like a dog pissing on a flat rock in Stumpy's words). We found lots of mud covering the road through Harmony Grove, and rode really slow through it. We got into La Costa, and the rain stopped. Temperature here was actually quite warm.

We got to Carlsbad, along Pacific Coast Highway, and had lunch at Harbor Fish Cafe. Channel 10 News out of San Diego was there, interviewing people about that freak rain storm. Stumpy and my wife were interviewed. Stumpy's interview actually made it on television, and they showed some brief footage of me and Lisa on our Harley. Check it out...

Rode north up the I-5, and headed inland along Ortega Highway, and stopped at Hells Kitchen. Went home from there.

How was your riding last weekend?
