A Perfect Day

I try to live with the attitude that every day is a perfect one. But some days are more perfect than others! Yesterday was one of those, when everything just came together so well that it couldn't have been any better.
To start off, Angie and I went to check out a bike for her. Yes, she is finally getting one! I'd found a silver 2000 Shadow VLX with 5900 miles on and she was excited!

The owner, Tony Eich, is an air-force veteran, world traveler and photographer (check out his site). The bike is in excellent condition. He let us test ride the bike and even knocked a couple of hundred bucks off the price for us. We put down a deposit on the bike and headed back to Angie's place, where we met up with John, Aimee and Dave, her neighbor who rides a Harley Davidson as well.

We then set out to Versailles, Indiana, where Angie's folks Jerry and Phyllis have a farm. It was 70° and simply the best day to be out riding. From US 50W, we took route 56 from Aurora, IN and then route 262 from Rising Sun. We then took route 62 at Dillsboro, a winding, scenic road though the town of Friendship, IN.

We were starving by the time we arrived at the farm. Mama Bling had just what a bunch of hungry riders needed! Brauts and hot dogs, an excellent potato salad, baked beans and chocolate brownies! After devouring most of the food, we took a tour of the farm.

The riders and Jerry

I tried fishing for the first time and after overcoming some initial hesitation about threading a live worm through a hook, I even caught a fish!

It was a little cooler as we headed back to Cincinnati, and we reached home just before dark, having ridden about 150 miles. Lets see how we can top yesterday!

You got it! It was a perfect day! But one thing you forgot to mention... to top off a perfect day, we had some awesome Hawiian pizza! LOL
