Havin' fun... but watch out for the shoes.

So a friend of mine bought a motorcycle a few months ago. I get invited from time to time to ride with him. It's a lot of fun.

He took the motor safety course and is a very good bike "driver." I was also given my instructions on what to do as a good rider: Arms around his waist, lean when he leans in the same direction he leans, when he turns I look over the shoulder to the direction he is turning, feet on the pedals at all times - even when stopped, etc.

Normally I wear my jeans, "tennis" shoes, jacket and helmet. However, last Friday night we went out to dinner for his birthday. Afterwards we decided to go for a bike ride. I had on my casual dress shoes with heals about 2" high. I got on the bike and didn't think about the rubber soles and heels on the shoes. We had been riding for about 20-30 minutes when I realized my heels were getting k
ind "squooshy." It was then that I gave it some thought and I realized my rubber heels were resting on the hot exhaust pipes. THEY WERE MELTING!!!






So, my warning here is, MAKE SURE YOU WEAR THE RIGHT SHOES WHEN YOU'RE RIDING A MOTORCYCLE. It was fun, but it left melted rubber on the pipes and ruined a comfortable pair of shoes. Oh well, good reason to go shopping...

Yes... it is pretty funny. I've decided to save the shoes.

My "friend's" name is Gary. It's the same guy I was seeing when I was back there 3 years ago.

As for the other comments...I HAVE NO IDEA... they just appeared.
