    my new TOY really is quilt related

    because with the money I save on gas, oil changes, etc, I can go to more quilt shops/shows and have more fun!

    Good for you!! I got a little 49cc scooter to putt around our small town on. It's yellow and black so I call her "Aunt Bee" ('cause she looks kinda like a bumblebee, and also because our town reminds me of Mayberry and the real "Aunt Bea"). Hope you enjoy your new wheels as much as I do mine. 80mpg makes me a happy girl!!

    I ride a 250cc scooter since 2008. I have three of the net things that have hooks on them. I use them for everything on my scooter. I bought a roll of warm and natural at Jo Anns (44 yards) and strapped it on the back of my scooter and off I went. My husband thought I was crazy. LOL

    You go girl! Motorcycle mama and quilter to boot. Just take care of yourself on that big machine and watch out for the "yehoos" on the road.

    Nice bike but every mother's nightmare! My ex had lots of bikes and I rode a few times. I was not a fan. LOL. I wore leathers, helmet, gloves, and boots on every ride. This was in Southern Calif. and it was hot but I wore it all. I saw too many of his friends get seriously hurt because safety equipment was not used.
    So please wear all the safety equipment every ride.
    Got fabric?
