Emerald Coast Bike Fest 2009 - All weekend long, during the rally, the drag strip stays busy with qualifying runs, eliminations, and stunt riders, all before the actual races on Sunday. We would ride the golf carts from the camp site to the track several times during the weekend to enjoy a little "high speed" entertainment. I love watching drag races. My problem is... I want to be on one of those bikes! Woo Hoo! (I snatched this photo from the Emerald Coast Bike Fest website. Pretty cool, heh?)
We were were watching some amazing tricks performed by the stunt riders, when these two caught my attention in particular.
While I was watching them, the announcer was telling us, that even though this young married couple just had their first baby about six months ago, they're at the track often, practicing their tricks. Congratulations! How cool is that? I imagine as soon as that little one is ready to roll, he or she will be at the track with Mom and Dad, learning the family skills.
I'm guessing they are getting ready for another stunt, but I swear the caption on this pic needs to be, "Will you get your head outta my ass and let me ride!" LOL!
I tried to get a close up, but if you look down the track, you can see that she's facing backwards in front of him while he controls the bike. Hmmm. He's probably thinking, " uh, honey... while your there..." LOL! They were really fun to watch.
I put together a little slide show, wrapping up my rally experience that's sure to satisfy the peeps with lots of motorcycle candy. Most of you know I'm a die hard rocker, but something about this catchy country song just struck my fancy. Besides, I tacked on a little treat for myself at the end... saving the best for last.
RIDE ON! Go and have lots of fun and get your fill. Then get your butt's (safely) back home and blog, blog, blog. Those of us who can't go will be waiting anxiously like chicks in a nest... come back with food!
