Take one cowboy, add one cowgirl, mix in one motorcycle, 'shaken not stirred' and hold on to yer' a@# !! Hi, we are Bill McKay and Karen Brown, presently from Bandera, Texas...We are working horse people. What that means is Karen trains horses and I "cowboy".
(Yes...that is REALLY what I do! )
Please join us in our FIRST motorcycle adventure. (Well..Karens first, anyway.)
Being a lifelong bike enthusiast, when Karen told me, a year ago, that we 'needed' to go to Europe. I told her "No thanks!" "What did I want to go to a city for?" " They're just fulla' people and cars and buildings and ALL the stuff I don't like!" BUT she kept talking and I said the ONLY way I was goin' was by motorcycle and danged' if she didn't say "WHYYY NOT!" (I'd like to tell ya'll that it really didn't go this smooth but, it REALLY did!)
Now there really wasn't as much planning as you might think. We got on the horn ( the net to you college guys) and checked out a few places for rentals, (we didn't, and still don't currently, own a bike) and came up with 'Bournemouth Motorcycle Limited' inthe UK..after a few dozen e-mails, ( let me tell ya' these people have been GREAT) we were set up to ride!!! Tickets, money, backpack, hat (hell yes! I'm takin' my hat!) we're ready to shove off!
There's more to this story than I can tell inthis first entry but, why try and give you everything right at the start of the story....if'n you want ALL the 'bloody and gory' details...you're just gonna' hafta' keep checkin' in!
Wish us well. First stop, London! Look out ya'll! We're loose with the saddle on!!
