Happy December 1st ! Today was beautiful and a cold crisp 6 C (42 F). I heard rumor of snow in our forecast, but I am keeping my frozen fingers and toes crossed. Again I am neglecting my chores on a day off and listening to Lucy calling me from the garage because she wants to play. So I geared up and off we went. I thought I had sufficient layers on, but apparently not. I think I need to juice up my gloves and maybe a heated vest. We went for a nice ride out to the Peninsula and back up through farmland. I have to say I am loving the fact it is December 1st and I am out on my bike.
Here are a few pictures of my ride and some festive pics with it being December.
A little more moto rambling. Yesterday I was out to the local Suzuki/Triumph/Ducati dealer and found the perfect pair of boots which are "Guaranteed waterproof" the gentleman that helped me was awesome. The boots fit like a glove and are well made. I am now asking Santa/Motorcycle Man for these. I can't believe how my focus has changed from baubles and bling to everything motorcycle in a mere 11 months. Every since I started my motorcycle journey I have always loved the look of the old Triumphs and have wistfully wanted one. Yesterday while at the dealer, the salesman happily indulged me by pulling out a Bonneville for me to sit on and ogle. It was perfect! It is the perfect height and size and I don't struggle flnging my leg over when I get on it or when I get off. I love the retro styling of it and could see myself riding it. Sigh the sad part is now I will have to save up for it and it may take awhile, but until that time I have my beautiful Lucy, so I am content.
So Santa Baby if you are snooping around my blog all I have to sing is "Santa Baby I've been an awfully good girl....Santa Baby please put a pair of Triumph boots under my tree for me... I don't want baubles or bling...So hurry down the chimney tonight!"
It is full-on Christmas now, time to set up the tree and dip into some Rum & Egg Nog or a decadent Candycane Martini......

|Inside the Legislature there is usually a magnificent tree, I am going to have to go and capture some pictures of it, it is truly a beautiful thing to behold.|
