I hurt.

I haven't posted a life snippit in a while so here we go. You may have seen my post when my husband and I bought our new Harley Davidson motorcycle. Previously, we owned a HD Fatboy (yes, that's the model name) and we recently swapped the old boy for a Road King, a former NYPD bike.

I rode the Fatboy without any issues. It's a great bike, perfect size for me. It's heavy, but it's well balanced and handles with ease. Saturday was the first day I was able to get out and ride the Road King with my husband, me on the back, and Sunday I took it for myself. Today, everything hurts.

I hopped on the bike fully confident in my ability to handle it. I started off great. Rode down the street and stopped at the stop sign. I leaned, ever so slightly, to position myself to turn around and head back...and I dropped it. It weighs almost 800lbs and I am seriously not equipped to hold it up. It's top heavy, sits a lot higher than a Fatboy and is way too big for me. Just the slightest lean caused it to fall over. Thankfully, we have crash bars on the front so I didn't scratch anything or hurt my leg, but I think I pulled every muscle in my body trying, and failing, to keep it from falling...ouch. I was fine yesterday, not even shaken up, but today EVERYTHING HURTS! :(
And that's my story.

Oh no! I'm glad you and the bike were not seriously injured.

I hope to start to feel better! Relax and pop some pain meds! :(

Thanks, Jess. Luckily I wasn't moving when it fell. Me and my lack of coordination. I can't balance myself for nothin'.

Ouch! How in the world did you manage to pick it back up? I'm glad you weren't hurt. Maybe you need his and hers. A Fatboy for you. BTW, I love the Fatboy name. :)

Thanks, Anissa. I love the name also and I would get myself a fatboy but I have my heart set on an Indian Chief. Someday. To start I'll be getting myself a Kawasaki Vulcan Drifter. It's not Indian or even Harley, but it looks like the Indian, and its light weight and cheap. A good starter bike for me. I'm waiting until my children are older before I get myself on one.
