Meet Scilla, the Beautiful New Member of My Growing Family
Sometimes you just need to admit when you have made a mistake so here it goes. I got into a relationship a couple of years ago that I thought was the one I had been waiting my whole life for. I was sure she was the one. She was all I thought I wanted but it turned out to be a lie. I tried to make it work for two years. I pretended to be love but really just couldn't stand her. She just wasn't right for me and I finally admitted it to myself and did something about it.
I am talking about my old motorcycle Dorothy. I bought, what I thought, was my dream bike a couple of years ago when I bought a fully dressed Harley Davidson Ultra Limited. I thought I was ready to move up and enter the bagger world but I was wrong. I am not a bagger guy. I hated it the minute I drove it off the lot. I knew it was just too much for me. It is the perfect bike for someone who spends a lot of time on the road taking long trips but is not the bike for a town to town hop like I do. It was just too damn big to maneuver for me. It just sat there like a boat for a couple of years and I never really rode it. It killed my love of riding because it was just the wrong bike for me.
Last weekend I went and visited my friends at Greeley Harley Davidson and tried to solve my problem. I solved it and fell deeply in love with a new little lady. She is a beautiful brand new teal and white Heritage Softail. I feel in love with the look and ride of this baby immediately. Now this is what I call riding!!
I love the retro look of it. It feels like it came right out of the 1950's to me. I felt like Elvis when I rolled off the lot so the only name that fits this new beauty has to be 'Scilla'. Elvis loved his Priscilla and I fell in love with mine right away too. If you see a huge smile wrapped in leather riding a white and teal dream...that is me. Welcome to the family Scilla. I love you.
