Friday was a beautiful day in the Pacific Northwest. I have a childhood friend who lives in Portland, he owns a 2008 Harley Fat Bob. We met halfway between Portland and Seattle and then rode as far as we could down the Spirit Lake Highway to Mount St Helens. The roads were clear, the sky was blue, and the mountain was majestic. I couldn’t have asked for a better day.

The ONLY downside was my sore butt when I got home. This was my longest day out on the bike (I’ve been riding since December 31, 2019), and I was feeling it. I literally need to toughen my butt up.

beautiful. BTW, is that a seat belt around your chest in the third pic :)
It’s a Chrome messenger bag. Their signature design is to use old school seatbelts to secure their packs. My kids will never know the thrill of trying to not get a third degree burn while buckling your seatbelt on a hot summer day.
