In lieu of one picture today, I decided to bring you some of my great vacation leftovers. I had so many pictures to share and my posts were already so long! Here is some more of the beauty I just couldn't fit in!(Warning: Sorry, it's almost 5 minutes long, but there's music! )

I hope you enjoyed my little slide show and to all, have a nice Monday!

Sorry about the picture quality of this slide show. I viewed it myself after it was posted, and it seems to show alot blurriness. Oh well, I'll tweak on my skills!

Mr. Motorcycle said...

Picture quality was fine and the music was nice. I loved the whole thing. Great memories. I feel like I lived vicariously through your posts.

Ann said...

Great pics! I thought they looked fine, no worries!

I love One True Media! I always use them for my slideshows.

Nice job...glad it was a trip to remember...in a good way! :)

Great post as usual-makes me want to join!!! What many of you may not know-lady ridesalot is not just a motor-cycle babe and great writer; but the best of friends and the hostess with the mostest!!! Thanks again for the relaxing weekend and all the laughs!!! Ride-on-- Earth-mother

That was awesome. I was having one of those off days today and this just made me feel a whole lot better. That had to have been one of those once in a life time trips. This thing gave me road fever. I think I will have to get out soon. Thanks!

Lady Ridesalot said...

Lady R... quit talking to yourself!

mr. m... did I ever tell you I'm a little bit of a perfectionist? Bad trait to have. I pick my projects apart..., or maybe nearly to death! So, thanks for the compliment, makes me feel better! Glad you enjoyed the ride!

ann...One True Media really makes it pretty easy! I would like to put together some slide shows for my family for Christmas this year. Everybody loves looking at pics of themselves to music. I guess I'll need to start early!

Earth-mother...Your just saying that because I fed you chocolate! LOL! Our next project needs to be getting you on your own ride, so we can really get into some fun! (or trouble, whatever comes first!)

Glad we had some time together, I miss you already! See ya soon!

Lady Ridesalot said...

Dave... I agree. I FEEL like I just had the trip of a lifetime. There's just too many things that are conducive to the motorcycle rider that makes your stay in this area absolutely wonderful! You would love it! Let me know when your coming! LOL!

Masterchief said...

GREAT STUFF! You have given us all a gift with your pictures and words. Thanks for my office chair vacation? With the price of gas, this was about all I am getting for a while.

"Joker" said...

That was cool. I haven't attempted the slide show yet. Since I'll probably have loads of pics from Milwaukee, it may just be the time for ol' Joker to break down and give it a try.

Great pics. Loved the music.

Big Daddy said...

I didn't watch it.
Because if I had I would have seen the smokey's and the gentle sweeping curves with bike's rolling on it.
I probably would have also seen a pretty lady standing with two bikers.
also in the end I would see a man standing on the overpass. arm's akimbo.
Too bad I didn't see all that.
Maybe next time.

Great slideshow....Thanks so much for sharing your trip with us. What a beautiful country we live in!

Lady Ridesalot said...

masterchief... speaking of gas, we didn't spend as much as you would have thought. Our $$ went to shirts or signs or just other things we wanted to take back with us as a memento. And food! And beer! Woo Hoo!

Joker... if I can do it, anyone can! One True Media was really easy, but I also have a program that should allow me to produce some pretty decent stuff, with a little better quality. I just haven't out smarted that program yet. LOL!


Big D... awww. I'm really sad you missed all that! LOL!
Maybe next time. :)

IHG... It was so nice riding and taking in the beautiful views. I would like to add the SD area to my portfolio of great rides! One day!

Glad to see you're re-connected. Came to work on Sat. A.M. with good intentions but the sun is shining and I lost all my ambition(couldn't have anything to do with Friday night fun!) So I'm headed to the store reluctantly and then home to enjoy this beautiful day-hope you're out riding. Looking forward to a new post. EM
