    A good day --

    I needed to take a test ride on my RT to verify handling of my trailer before a trip this coming weekend.

    I suggested to my wife she take her GS and we ride to my Mom's, about 20 miles down the road, and take her out to lunch.

    My wife had the idea of bringing along extra gear, resulting in my 74-yo Mom's first ride on a bike:







    A seriously happy camper at our lunch stop! :



    A good day for all.

    Good for her!
    Proof that it's never too late to start riding!

    Wow, nice day out, she looks very happy!

    I started reading your post and I thought "Where's this going?" like maybe ... "I brought the trailer to haul my mother- in-law...."
