My sister received her “M” endorsement!

My sister received her “M” endorsement… yippee! Back in February I attended a Harley Davidson’s Garage Party, a woman only event that offers basic information geared mainly to non riders. I signed up for the Garage Party to see the proper technique on how to pick up a dropped bike… I also signed up my sister to come along with me. It was a lot of fun and we meet some really nice ladies. At the Garage Party, Pikes Peak Harley Davidson offered any of the ladies attending the Garage Party to take the Riders Edge Course for $99… great deal! My sister signed up that day, she took her Rider’s Edge Course last week, passed and received her “M” endorsement on her Colorado Driver License on Friday.

One of the ladies we met at the Garage Party (Bernadette) told my sister about a motorcycle that was for sale, a 2001 Harley Davidson 883 Sportster with only 400+ miles, firm asking price of $5500. I went along with my sister, brother in law and Bernadette to see the bike. It was a pretty maroon color and the body was in great condition, except it has been stored for few years… the lady who was selling it developed knee problems and she wasn’t able to ride it. After my sister talked it over with her husband they decided not to purchase it because of any potential problems that may occur from it being stored that long.

On the way home we stopped in at Colorado Springs Harley Davidson and looked at some of the new motorcycles they had. Mike (the sales guy that helped Bryan) remembered that my sister was looking for a blue Sportster… they just happen to have one that came in a couple days before. He took us in the back and it was still wrapped in the protective covering. Once my sister pulled off the covering she fell in love with it right away. She ended up purchasing it that night. Since Bryan bought his bike there and I brought my sister in to buy a bike, I received a $100 gift card from Harley Davidson… how cool is that? These are a few pictures of her bike that I took yesterday. It’s a 08 Dark Blue Pearl 883L Sportster with the windshield and engine guard already installed. She hasn’t moved it out of the garage since she brought it home Saturday night… hopefully she’ll feel like riding it soon!

Another good thing… Jake and I are both down 15 lbs! Here is a refresher about Jake’s Vet putting him on a restricted diet.

I promise I’ll have some stamping to share soon, I haven’t stamped for about three weeks and I really need to get caught up on some projects. Thanks for reading ~ Jovi

  1. Jovi, this was such a fun post to read. Paul is picking up my bike from the Harley dealership in a week. My classes don't begin until the 23rd but I do have my M1license now so I'll be all set for the course and then I can ride - hopefully the first of May.

    You and your sister will have such FUN riding together.

    So...whatcha gonna spend your $100 on?
