I Hate To Have To Do This

... But it has been forced upon me. I have had this blog for just over two years and I have now been forced to moderate the comments posted to my blog. Someone has repeatedly been posting very long religious comments on my blog. I delete it and they keep coming back. Is anyone else having this problem recently?

I am religious and everyone has their rights to what they believe or choose not to believe. They should start their own blog and post their ideas. These comments have absolutely nothing to do with my posts. They actually appear to be threatening in nature. So please bear with me and very sorry I had to do this.

Motorcycle Blog to Check Out

I have just today found a fellow motorcycle blogger that has listed his Top 100 Motorcycle blogs. Many of you are on it and there are a few that are new to me and I must go visit. Cristian - who lives in Bucharest, Romania - has a couple of Honda Nighthawks and hence the name of his blog Honda Motorycles blog. I just read one of his motorcyle travels and it is very interesting. He can ride for miles and miles and not come across another vehicle on the road!! WOW!

A few of you have already found him and chatted with him. I'm playing catch-up, as I have been out of the bloggy world for a few months. School is out and I'm finding more time to do the things I love. I do love working in a high school library, but my first year back was hard for me. I worked full-time till my first child was born and then I opted to stay at home and raise my kids and was lucky to be able to do it. I stayed at home for about 19 years, YIKES!!! Without my extra income we had to watch the pennies and couldn't do or buy what many did, but it was worth it. I can say that I'm glad to be back in the workforce and working with teens is fun.

During the time I was silent in my blog I was still out riding my motorcycle when I could. If there is one thing I love - it is riding my motorcycle!!! People at work and the students love it that their library assistant rides a motorcycle to work.

On that note: Let me wish everyone travels adventures,

Biker Betty :)

Dinner in the Next Town

Hello to all - I got back from dinner a little bit ago and what a fun time it was. The Mountain Shadow Riders had their monthly family dinner night tonight. I logged almost 60 miles just getting there and back. It was great seeing those who were able to make it. I've missed quite a few of their family dinner nights lately and really wanted to make this. It was partly selfish on my part, as we went to Casa Grande Mexican Restaurant up in Woodland Park. A few of you may have read in past posts how much I love riding up Highway 24 to Woodland Park (and beyond to Buena Vista - where the famous Collegiate Peaks are). Plus I loovvve this restaurant!!

So tonight it was to Woodland Park, CO and to one of my favorite restaurants there. The food was marvelous, as usual, and the place was packed. They recently relocated to a new location they had built and I understand they have been very busy since. We had eight people reserve for the dinner from our group, our organizer reserved ten at the restaurant and twelve showed up, lol. We kept playing musical chairs trying to fit everyone in, as they all din't show up at the same time. It all worked out and we had an enjoyable dinner. The people at Casa Grande were superb!!

At this dinner I was reminded that I hadn't posted since January and would I please post something. I will try and post more often, as I miss everyone and hearing from you. So Don, this post is dedicated to you. He reminds me when I have been delinquent in posting, lol. Don rides a motorcycle and has recently started his own blog. He is also very involved with ABATE in Colorado. As soon as I can I will put a link to him. He told me at the dinner, but I didn't have anything to write on and I tried to commit it to memory - but alas my retched memory has failed me :(

I must close for now.

Wishing you adventurous travels to wonderful restaurants,

Biker Betty

PS: The Mountain Shadow Riders has started our ride contest for this year. In a few days I will tell you all about it. It should be lots of fun!!
