Christmas Day Ride 2008

Princess on Christmas Day

It was 41 degrees at 11:00 am, with gusty winds chilling to 33 degrees.  The sun was shining brightly, which was especially nice since I don’t believe I’ve seen sunshine in over a month!  First State HOG chapter showed up in admirable numbers for the 2008 Christmas Day Ride.

2008 FSH Christmas Day Riders

There were 14 Harleys ridden by men brave enough to bear the frigid temperatures and one new Super Glide ridden by The Princess (me).  Many bikes were decked out in reindeer antlers, Santa hats, and shiny new Christmas chrome.  We paraded around town in staggered formation for just about a half hour.  I am certain that everyone we passed thought we were nuts!

We caught Santa

It was good to see old friends and to meet a few new ones.  Although our New Year’s Day ride is still a week away it felt like a fresh start to a new year in a chapter under new leadership.  We received a holiday card from dear friends in our HOG chapter that said “sometimes friends feel more like family than your actual family” and that is certainly how I feel about my friends at First State HOG.

HD Antlers!

Happy Holidays everyone and thank you for visiting our humble motorcycle blog!
