Bikers are the nicest people!

O.K...I took my bike down to this mechanic today--the guy is a friend of a friend. He's not close to my house, but he does great work.

So, I'm riding along on 1492 and my ride starts feeling kinda....squishy...just not right. So, I start looking (while I'm riding) at the front wheel--seems like there is too much "play" in the wheel. I finally stop at a light and the guy next to me honks and says, "your back tire is kinda low."

So, I look and sure enough it's kinda low. So pull onto 99--find a gas station. The guy followed me....helped me fill my tire (O.K...I went with the dumb blonde routine...)

Once we started talking, I found out he'd been riding for about 3 months. Bought a Honda, took lessons from the same guy I took lessons from. He was REALLY nice!! I really appreciated the help!! (I COULD have done it myself.....)


Anyways....by the time I got the bike to the shop...went in....talked to that guy for about 30 minutes, the tire was really low again. Must have run over something. Had that guy not told me I'd be stuck on the side of the road!

Us bikers gotta watch each others backs!!

When am I going out with the guy that helped me?? HA!! Pretty much never!

I'm just getting back from a week-long mission trip in Guatemala. We stayed in Antigua for the week. It's an interesting town with cobblestone streets and LOTS of different kinds of motorcycles.

So....I'm hoping to pick up my bike on Monday or Tuesday---with a fixed flat, new handle bars and new chrome!!

Can't wait.

Oh, and the mission trip was AWESOME!

Really....where was she born??

I'll let you all know when I get my photos on the internet. I'll probably work on that tonight. I'll also be writing some stuff about my experiences on my MySpace blog.

I did and saw some really mind blowing stuff.

When you say you were on a "mission" in Guatemala, what kind of mission was it? Just curious.

Check out my photos in the "off topic photo" section. I went with Memorial Drive Presbyterian Church. We worked with two different schools for special needs kids and a home for special needs kids. We taught Vacation Bible School and did some maintenance projects.
