Diana Biker Babe

We picked up my new baby today, and I must say she is FABULOUS!!!  A pewter pearl shining star with 6-speed tranny, fuel injection, and a rubber-mounted 96-cubic inch motor.

Diana loves her new Dyna Street Glide

Diana’s first ride on the new scooter

I was very jealous watching Jay ride her home from the dealer (we had to take the highway and there were threatening severe thunderstorms, so I let him do the dirty work).  It was obvious as I rode behind him in the Honda Civic that he was having a lot of fun!  It also gave Mr Worry Wart a chance to check out every button, lever, and control before he deemed it safe to turn over to me.  Problem is, the bike whore didn’t want to give her up!!

The storms never materialized, so we stopped at an empty parking lot a few blocks from home so I could try her out.  Jay reluctantly handed over the keys, and then watched as I added 5 miles to her odometer driving in circles and figure-eights around the parking lot.  I felt like I was leaning really hard into some of those turns and wondered if I might come close to scraping pegs, but the bike felt so much more stable compared to my Sporty.  She handles like a dream!

Diana is grinning from ear to ear

It was pushing 8 o’clock and I was starving, so I rode her home and maneuvered her perfectly into her spot in the garage.  I got her up to third gear and 45 mph, which isn’t much…but it sure feels good after riding in circles in a parking lot for an hour!  She makes the most beautiful sound when she is actually moving.  It is like music to my ears.

I guess I’ll keep her.  😉
