Top 10 reasons to take a 72 day, 16,000 mile motorcycle trip
#1 – Celebrate 25 years together….
“We didn’t realize we were making memories, we just knew we were having fun.”
Barbara Bush has been quoted as saying “At the end of your life, you will never regret not having passed one more test, not winning one more verdict, or not closing one more deal. You will regret time not spent with a husband, a friend, a child, a parent.” This is a philosophy we live by. This trip is all about spending quality time together focused on “us” and the things we enjoy doing.
We’ve been asked why we are going “two-up” on the motorcycle versus taking two bikes. Basically, we really enjoy being on the bike together and experiencing the sights at the same time…the closeness is powerful. It’s really hard to not get along when you are spending 8-10 hours a day sitting within 6″ of each other!
In our 25+ years together we have discovered what is important and what is just a minor bump in the road. As my daughter-in-law has been quoted “Is that really something you want to argue about?” Most things that annoy us are really quite minor and petty….we’ve learned to let those go and remember our love for each other is what is really important.
This trip will be an opportunity to see some places we haven’t been and at the same time visit some of our “old haunts” to relive some memories of our life together. Can’t wait to see what the next 25 years brings!
(Lot’s of “what did you say?”, “huh?”, “why did I come in here?”….. some of you know exactly what we mean!)
