Well, here it is! My final post in the Bike Fest series. Bringing my weekend adventure to an end is a little bitter sweet, but I couldn't just share all the GOOD and the BAD, without bringing you a little bit of the UGLY! I hope I don't offend anyone, but if I do, well... goodbye.
Do you remember that favorite thing your mom yells at you when you were a kid, running around in the yard crazy, playing and screaming and stuff? She'll say, "Stop running around with that, you'll poke your eye out!" It didn't matter what we had in our hand, it was going to poke our eyes out. Well, I saw something sooooo UGLY, I wish my eye was poked out! Joker, I think this guy read your comment about riding through Holt in the Duo Glide, with nothing but the chaps. OMG! Someone should have told him the 'just kidding' part! I had to do a double take! On his ass, someone wrote "TIP ME". I wanted to go up to him and say, "Here's a tip for ya. I'd run before those six big guys over there decides who gets you first!" He must have been doing this as a dare. I sure would hate to think another fellow biker thinks this is pretty!
You know, it's really UGLY when you lose your girlfriend! Our buddy, the Lone Ranger, was all set with his date for the weekend, when something terrible happened. She turned up missing! We looked all over the campsite for her and couldn't find her anywhere. We asked everyone we talked to, to let us know if they see her. After looking through the track and vendor area, we decided she was nowhere to be found. He was very sad and heartbroken over her, but decided, what the hell! This is Bike Fest! So we popped some Bud Lights and drank to a hopeful future!
Well, as it turned out, we found the Lone Ranger's girlfriend later that night. Here she was, all strapped up on some other dude's cart, riding on the front like the shameless hussy she was! Now how UGLY is that, to see your girlfriend hangin' out all over the place for everyone else to see! Tsk, tsk, tsk. The Lone Ranger rides alone once again.
It's all about fun! Probably everyone here, came with the intent to have a great weekend, share their love for motorcycles, and take home some sweet memories. That's why it's a sad note when the weekend is marred by an accident. Saturday afternoon, a couple turned their ATV over and were hurt pretty bad. Apparently, they were riding around a corner too fast, and it rolled. They had to be air lifted out by Gulf Flight. It's an UGLY scene, when something like this occurs.
And just one more big UGLY! This is for all the ladies out there. Don't be fooled that a nice smile and a charming personality will keep you out of trouble! I made the mistake of coming between a man and his titties and I thought all hell was gonna break loose! It was really very innocent at how it all happened. I made myself real little and squoze up to sneak in near the front, to get some pics of the Bull Ride. ( I had my blogger pals in mind, here!) Well, after snapping a few shots, still scrunched down, I turned around and was going to squeeze myself back out. Some big guy twice my size stepped in my way and said, "Hell no! You stepped all over me to get up here, your only way out is through there!" This isn't exactly what happened, but anyway, as he was saying this, he was pointing over my shoulder behind me. I turned around to verify what I knew I was going to see, and yep! Nothing but the ring and that nasty ass bull, with who knows how many nasty asses have already been on it. Well, I really thought he was just messing with me, and when I realized he was genuinely pissed, I got a bit nervous. He stepped into my path three or four times, determined not to let me out of the crowd. I finally told him, "We can two step all night, but if I'm not back out by that cart in about two minutes, I'll have three or so dude's looking for me. I got by. When I got back to the cart, I told Harley what had happened, and he said I should have had my tazer on me. Silly me, I thought I was at a party! So ladies, hear what I am saying. We need to be ever mindful of our situation at all times. Our world does have some UGLY going on, and if we stay smart and observant, we'll always be one step ahead of the rest.
I hope you have enjoyed my Bike Fest series...the GOOD, the BAD, and the UGLY. I had fun putting it all together, but probably more fun collecting the data. Harley and I have been busy, so I have many more nice posts to come. Ride on! Lady R
