On Friday, we bid adieu to our trusty motorcycle. It was an emotional roller-coaster for the children. When they found out that we were selling it that morning, there was great weeping and gnashing of teeth. The kids have been going through a LOT of change lately, with their home getting packed up, saying goodbye to friends and toys and clothes and their whole home...apparently this was one of the proverbial last straws. So we decided to try to make it a little easier by taking a farewell cruise.
I took each of the kids for a short ride so that they could say a proper goodbye to the good ol' XLR 200. It has done a good job for us.
Everybody was pretty excited to get their ride, and it definitely helped to smooth the transition.
Close your eyes, mom. The helmet was too big for our 24-pound 3-year old. Don't worry, I drove SLooooW with her. And she was quite impressed.
Goodbye Honda. You have served us well.
