If my mom were alive...

She'd say I was nuts!
For years I've wanted one. There was a time, several years ago when I could afford one I wasn't "allowed" to have one, then, after my divorce I could finally have one and couldn't afford one...
I've always wanted a Harley Davidson Electra Glide...

Now that's a bike!



I'll probably not get the HD Electra Glide Classic...



But it will be an Electra Glide!



Like this Electra Glide Standard.. I'll probably go with HD Vivid Black. It'll be a pain in the ass keeping clean, But man will it look great! As a friend's wife told me recently, there's nothing like a 800 pound vibrator!
Anyway, I have several friends here in Florida that have them and especially now, in the summer I feel left out. My buddies and their wives and girlfriends are forever going on bike runs. They have all the fun... I know, I've seen the pictures and heard the stories!

So now I know what you're all thinking... Tommy's gone off and is having a mid-life crisis. Nothing could be farther from the truth. I'm extremely happy with where I'm at in my life right now. I'm happier now than I've been in a long, long time. With myself I mean. I'm not happy with other things, like the country, but I'm not going there in this post.
What I mean I'm not hitting some point in my life where I'm afraid of losing my youth. Hell, I did that years ago. I'm happier now than I ever was in my 20's and especially in my 30's. I'm just now learning to like myself again and am sick of seeing all my friends having fun.
I want some fun for a change DAMMIT!
So probably by the end of the year the new RT~Mobile is going to be an Electra Glide in Black!

I'd bitch at you for wanting a death trap, but I have to admit that I think they're kind of cool.

Recently I saw a small group of Harley bikers at a convenient store. They exuded "good time."

Ranger Tom said...

Burg: So great to see you back! I've missed you! And yes, they are dangerous, but the same can be said for any amusment park in the country... Can you say "Carney"?

Leazwell: I know... And I want to be part of that "Good Time" for once in my life!

Oh you lucky f*cker! I'm enviouse!

Ranger Tom said...

Big Daddy: Do you mean 'envious'? LOL... Don't be. I've been wanting one for a long, long time.

Its just like that post I put up, you should be able to borrow your neighbor's bike since you're helping them pay their mortgage.

Ranger Tom said...

Becky: I know... But that's just me. I can pay my own way, I have a good paying job and don't expect anyone to help me with it... But I do see the humor in it!

I wanted one for home visits...but alas, I can't have one. I try the whole better on gas mileage thing...it doesn't work!

Ranger Tom said...

Weatherchazer: Sounds like a really good reason to me...
