Experiencing Life

Speaking for myself, I feel experiences are the most important life lessons.  You can live all you want, but if you don’t experience that life, you will truly never know what it is to live.  A new experience for myself was an all day motorcycle ride (bike ride).  I had only been on a ride “around the block” but nothing like a real bike ride!  Now, I completely understand the attraction.  Feeling the wind on your face and the wide-open space is an incredibly freeing experience. It was the most amazing way to see Montana. Completely unobstructed views in all directions.  We road on winding roads next to rivers, beautiful prairie land with the snow-covered mountains in the distance and mountain passes. All I had to do was make sure I held on and completely soaked in everything that surrounded me.  As much as I wanted to take lots of pictures I wanted to live in the moment and enjoy the experience.  My pictures on this ride were limited. Thanks to my amazing friend I did get some fun pictures of myself.   Another tick in the box of things to do again! I do stay firm that I am a rider, not a driver.  At the same time, I want to get a motorcycle!! It really was an amazing experience thanks to Amber, Jim, and Mike! I cannot wait to go again!
