A long post

Okay this will be a long post as I haven't posted in such a long time. So it has been an interesting May. First of all I had a 50cc scooter that I have been riding for the last year, welllllll I took the Basic rider training class here in Lane county. We rode motorcycle for this which ended up teaching me how to use the clutch and shift a bike. It was a blast and I passed so now have my motorcycle endorsement. Suffice it to say I couldn't get a motorcycle unless I sold my scooter, Finances being what they are. Anyways working in a motorcycle shop does have its advantage, it just so happened that a lady was calling from Pennsylvania looking for an "06" Raspberry Red Yamaha Vino 50. We weren't able to help her to buy a new one but oh by the way one of our employees is wanting to sell hers. So after more thought and preperation on the lady from Pennslyvania she decided she wanted to buy mine. Okay here is the story. Her three boys and her were wanting to fly to Eugene, Or. pick up her scooter, pick up their bicycles from Amtrak and then they were to embark on a coastal route to San Francisco. Where they would meet up with son #4 and then embark on the cross country tour back to Pennsylvania. They will be camping along the way and hopefully they might be blogging about their progress eventually. My husband and I had to travel to California to see my step daughter graduate so we speculated if by chance on the way home along the coast if we'd actually see them. Well as chance might have it as we were driving along the avenue of Giants who do we see on their bike and scooter? but Joy from Penn, and her three boys. Wow what a major coincidence to see them at all, but we didn't want to freak them out to bad so we honked, waved and kept on going. Did give her a call on her cell though to say it was us honking at her. Hope the boys and Joy have a wonderful trip.
As I said above we went down to Ft. Ord, California (could be Marina) I remember it as Ft. Ord having lived there as a child, anyways it is now CSUMB university which is where my Step-daughter Jen goes to school. She graduated with her Teaching credentials and we are so proud of her. We had a wonderful time with Jen and tooks some pics of our time with her and our route back home to Oregon. Unfortunately the pics are all jumbled so sorry bout that.
Here are the pictures hope you all enjoy them.
