First Time… on a Harley…

Daily Prompt: Viral

by michelle w. on August 22, 2013

The New York Times is going to feature your blog on its home page, and you’ve been asked to publish a new post — it’ll be the first thing tens of thousands of new readers see. Write it.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us FIRST.


I am still too tired to write properly, after these last 2 weeks I had to work in a butchery. SO again I opt for the Photo choice, because nothing I write tonight would be worthy of the great New York Times…

So- let me rather post a picture of First…  A very happy memory- the first time I ever rode a Harley Davidson…


This is my youngest, and he is on a week long field trip to the South African Lowveld- some of the most beautiful motorcycle routes in our country. He is now in Grade 6 and aged 12 years old, and I really am starting to miss the little man.

Just a very funny incident- last week he switched off his room’s light, and closed his door. The next moment I just heard this loud crashing noise. And when I  switched on his light, he had this funny expression on his face, a bit embarrassed. What happened was- he switched off the light, and then made a huge dive for his bed. He missed it completely in the dark, and dove right into his plastic container of toys… You can just imagine what his two elder brothers had to say about that one…

OK, that was the first time on a Harley, but not the only time…

There was that one day in Bloubergstrand, Cape Town


I took this Electra Glide over Chapman’s Peak Drive, and through the main street of Camp’s Bay- that is South African Harley Heaven…

So NYT- you may publish this if you want to. Family is most important, closely followed by a decent motorbike…
