A Ride With a Leather Buddy

I was pleased to be contacted via my website by Leather Chad ("LC"), who lives in the Washington, DC, area, near where I live.  We exchanged some messages, and in one of them, I invited him to join me for a ride on my Harley.

I've said that on some postings in various places that I like to take people either on my bike or ride with people who share similar interests -- boots & leather.  Well, I have to be honest, five years now with that message "out there," and this was the first local contact I've had that has actually worked out -- someone joining me for a ride.

"LC" is a very handsome, intelligent man who is very interesting to speak with.  We got together yesterday afternoon.  I gave him a ride on my Harley through the Maryland countryside.  The leaves on the trees are beginning to change colors, and the weather was delightful -- perfect "leather weather."  (I was in leather breeches, a pair of Dehner Boots, a leather shirt and vest.)

We stopped to take a break and talked about a wide variety of things, then rode back.  What a pleasant afternoon with a really nice guy!

"LC" had a nice pair of harness boots and a great leather jacket.  He promises that the next time we ride, he'll wear some leather pants.  Great -- but what's most important is that we will have that next time.  I enjoyed meeting him, and look forward to more rides with my buddy.

Life is short:  ride!

I am happy that the two of you had a nice time riding together. Bring him with you next time you go riding with me here in the City on the Yarra. The Great Ocean Road awaits. J will keep your partner entertained whilst we go for a great ride. Spring riding season has arrived, and only awaits you guys!
