So, last week I was on my ride with he OFMC (Old Fart motor cycle club) one of the riders in the front on a G/W( with 300,000 miles on just two G/W) puts his bike on cruz control and puts his arms out and moves them like he is a flying. Holey crap! that was just to cool.
So me, the little bird, that has only 25,000 miles, on this bike, and never taken both his hands off the handle bars at the same time, decides it is time to fly.
So like a baby bird, I slowly let go of both side of my handles bars (for the first time in my life) extend my arms, just close enough to my sides to try and move them like the BIG BIRD in front of me but move like a little chick getting ready to fly with my wings close to my sides.
Well, that did not last very long because a few min later I was like a big bird, moving my arms like I was getting ready to fly!
This week he was in front and I wanted to fly, solo, but at the same time BIG BIRD in the front extended his arms at exactingly the same time. You just had to be there to believe and see the beauty of us 2 in the flock of 9 flying solo.
I love my S/W

One of my best old friends just emailed me his thoughts on this matter.
Keep that ___ up and you'll be getting a set of Angel wings!
