Day 16: One From the Archives – Long Lost Loves #29in29

A few of the other bloggers who are also doing #29in29 posted some of their old motorcycle photos. Taking a cue from them, I thought I would see what I could dig up on my computer. Unfortunately, I don’t have very many old photos of me and my motorcycles. I guess that is one of the downsides of being camera shy. But – I did find a few.

May 2005

Hi Everyone-

We spent the night at the Cody Motor Lodge in Cody, Wyoming where we saw on the news that the Beartooth Pass from Red Lodge, Montana had been closed because of mudslides. Unfortunately that was the way we were going to head in to Yellowstone. We took an alternate route going up and over the Chief Joseph Scenic Highway. That’s where we snapped this picture.

While we were stopped, a lady pulled over and told us that the road ahead was covered in snow and ice. We decided that we could turn around if we needed to and kept going forward. I’m glad we did. It was only a snowy winter wonderland for a few miles. We emerged on the back side of the pass unscathed and pretty excited about what we’d just seen.

This was a day I’ll never forget.

This photo was taken in May of 2005 when Kenny and I rode from Long Island to Yellowstone National Park. It still stands as one of the most memorable trips of my life.

Over the weekend, I was digging through a box of old photos, scanning them and creating digital copies.  I came across this photo from November of 1996; it was me hugging my firecracker red ZX-6R.

I had so many great times on that bike. Long summer weekends riding and riding and riding… anywhere and everywhere. Those were the days.

How about you?

Do you miss any of your old rides? Do you think you miss the bike or the time in your life it represents?
