Bikes and Banjos
(Trempealeau, WI, USA)
HD Dyna Street Bob
A couple of years ago I spotted the Northern Lights Harley Davidson store (in Arbor Vitae, WI) while on vacation, and because of my love for northern lights I just had to stop to buy a t-shirt. Well, I bought the t-shirt.... but I also won a Dyna Street Bob! I had never been on a bike before, so this was the chance of a lifetime to learn to ride. At first my dear hubby wanted to sell my new bike so that he could get a riding mower (doesn't THAT sound like fun!), but soon he saw how much fun I was having and decided to get his own motorcycle so we could ride together. (I just couldn't see myself as a passenger once I learned to "ride my own".)
The picture of me playing my banjo on the back of my Street Bob came as a result of all the ribbing I get for playing the banjo. And yes, I know the difference between a Harley and banjo. (You can tune a Harley.) I think this answers the age old question, "yeah, but can she play the banjo while riding a Harley???" Well, to be honest, no I really CAN'T play the banjo while riding. If I have to choose between strumming or throttling...I'd rather be throttling.
People can make fun of my banjo, but in my humble opinion, I think the black banjo accessorizes pretty darn well with the black leathers and bike.
