After installing the new speakers in the front and rear, and cleaning the windshield and its mount, I loaded my wife on for a short ride. Today was the first time in 28 years she's been on a bike with me, the first time she's been on this bike, and the first time we've taken a ride on this bike together. This wasn't a long ride, only about 85 miles round trip, but it was enjoyable and a learning experience for us both. We left our home in Rigby and rode to Ashton, about 42 miles, and stopped for a soda and some reflection on our ride. Then we left for home, stopping at the Jefferson, County Veterans Memorial for a quick picture.
Our second intercom set-up will be here tomorrow, as will the new upholstery for the seat, so our ride next weekend will be on a shiny new seat and we'll be able to talk a little on the road. We've been debating whether to ride up to West Yellowstone or to Alpine, Wyoming. The Park has its attractions of course, but the ride to Alpine winds through the trees along Palisades Reservoir with the mandatory stop in Swan Valley for a square ice cream cone.
Here's the wife on board, being bored with my photography.
