What prettyh wants, prettyh gets.

gordonmessmer and I did a good bit of riding today. We didn't go far but we managed to compress a lot of fun into it. First we continued our search for the perfect cupcake. Trophy Cupcakes proved to be far superior to Cupcake Royale. The special today was a S'mores cupcake (chocolate cake with graham cracker crumbles frosted with marshmallow) and it was fantastic. Also it should be noted that due to packaging and frosting differences the Trophy cakes handled the motorcycle ride home far better than Royale's.

After that I wanted to try Molly Moon's ice cream. I'd heard about it recently and had to try it. I highly recommend it as the flavors are great and the scoops are more than generous. I had a scoop of salted caramel. Salted? Yep, try it some time. It's an amazing flavor.

After dropping the cupcakes off at home we grabbed the camera and headed out to try finding a good place to take pictures of my bikes. Gordon traded his Harley for the R50 for a short ride and discovered the conundrum that is shifting and signaling at the same time. :)

We rode to Golden Gardens and took some shots and then over to Magnuson Park where we took a few more. Silly I know, but I wanted some nice shots of both bikes next to one another. I went for some artsy* shots, but you also get one with me and my shaggy hair in it. Click for gallery:

WHEE!
Ohhh, this TOTALLY explains why I got a text from Joolie about the yummy cupcake!!

And YAY for me getting what I want. Dem's some snazzy bikes; it looks like the work you've put in is paying off. I'm told by my ex, who bought one after we split (I couldn't tolerate the idea of him cracking his skull open while we were together; he's a very reckless driver, or WAS when he was 20, because he has something to prove), that there are few things comparable to the freedom one feels when one takes their bike out into the open. NICE.

Re: WHEE!
Yes, there really is something about riding a bike that feels so much better than driving. I think that the R50 has more of that than the Rockster. Then again maybe that's just the fear that I might end up pushing it home ;)
