~ This Saturday's Theme is Five ~



Theme: Five ** Become a Photo Hunter ** View Blogroll



WoooHooo I did it again!!! At first I just couldn't think of anything for this Saturday's theme. I was going thru my photos when I found my file of the Harley Davidson 5 in 1 run I did last July. Above are the batches (now on my vest) I got for going on the run. We did 5 mountain passes at 10,000 plus elevation in one day. I did a post on it after the run.

There was a LOT of people who went on this run. The above photo doesn't do justice for ALL the motorcycles that went on this run. They divided everyone into groups of about 18-22 motorcycles. There must have been at least 12 groups participating.


The above picture show my motorcycle with my bags. Most of us spent the night in Leadville that night. The run ended at a reststop about 1/2 hour away from Leadville. It would have been about a 2 1/2 to 3 hour ride back home and most elected to spend the night at Leadville. It was so much fun.


Here is my Yamaha V-Star 650 at Kenosha Pass. It was our first stop. Needless to say, I plan on doing this run again this summer. It is on my calendar already!!

Now I must get to bed. I need to get up early for the Mountain Shadow Riders montly meeting. It's going to be a quick meeting as many of us plan on doing the Pikes Peak Harley Owners Group #405 Ladies of Harley Annual Mother's Day Run. This will be my first year in this run. Last year I thought it was for Harley riders only, but I found out this year that it is open to all motorcycles. So I plan on sneaking my Yamaha in amongst all those Harleys *smile*.

Goodnight,

Biker Betty :)

Nice choice (this was a difficult theme)
You are SO making me want a bike.

Melli said...

I had complete and utter faith that you would come up with something -- but I figured just 5 bikes lined up! This is AWESOME! I wouldn't have made it! I nearly passed out when I got to the top of Pike's Peak! For REAL! I never felt so sick... ugh! GO YOUUUUUUU!

JC said...

Sure does sound like total fun! Great pics.

Amy in NY said...

Is this anything like the mile high club? :)

Loni said...

I knew you'd have bikes here! :) Nice shots!

Mine is up too!

Jose said...

I haven't done a run in over a year and I'm having some serious run withdrawls. Cash is low right now and the FatBoy needs a front tire and the 10,000 mile check up. Mucho moula so for now it's safely parked in my garage. So take a ride for me.

srp said...

What a fabulous ride that must have been! I knew you could come up with something about a Harley and the word "five". Great job. Thanks for dropping by!

Barbara H. said...

Wow! What a challenge, and what a neat take on today's theme!

Sarch said...

Betty,

Your pics are making me long for a nice looooong ride. What a beautiful state you live in. Perfect for two wheeler finatics like us.

Thanks for the comment nudge. You are right, I have been busy. The riding season is upon us and I'm jumping in.

I'm looking forward to Memorial Day weekend as my parents and my brother and his wife and Tammy and I are heading out to Dahlonega, Georgia (about a 6 - 7 hour ride)for a long weekend of riding those beautiful Northern Georgia mountains. We're staying one night in a bed and breakfast called "Smith House". I stayed there about a year ago on a ride without Tammy and committed myself to getting her up there on a ride, so here it is! Can't wait.

Hope your Mothers' Day ride is spectacular!

Drew said...
