Feeling: disappointed

Saturday April 27, 2013

So the boy wanted to do this ride Lights for Eureka or something.  A motorcycle ride for charity to help Eureka put up street lights. Yeah, sure, charity, great, I'll go.  The first time he's been with a giant group of motorcyclists and it helps puff up his pride and makes him all happy to be seen hanging out with the 'tough guys' an all that jazz.  I could see his ego swell as more than 1,000 riders pulled out of Harley Davidson on State Street and headed to the freeway.  They had Doug Wright from KSL news covering this event and they had the helicopter up above Harley Davidson the whole morning and got video of all of us riding to the freeway and dispersing. Doug is who Evan and Gma listen to the most, should've known he was interested cuz Doug said so.  I bet it looked cool from above though.  It was kinda cool riding with others and sharing the lanes.  Evan isn't so used to riding/sharing with other bikes so he had to actually look in his blind spot a lot cuz bikes are smaller and can get right up next to ya. He was funny. 

Turns out Eureka is like a freakin 1.5 hours away or more, we went down the 'long way' I guess and came back a shorter way.  And if you've ever been on a motorcyle for 3 hours, and not the comfy luxurious bikes with passenger seats and radios, but just the small pad for your butt and a backrest, you'll know what I've been through this weekend.  I saw a girl with a guy on more of a bulletbike, no backrest, so she had to lean on him and keep her butt in an even smaller pad than mine.  That would suck after an hour or so.  

They had route planned out for us to go, but everyone kinda went the way they wanted to and met up at the checkpoints we were supposed to make for the "poker run"  (Stop at five places, pick a card, and the best hand at the end wins prizes).  It wouldn't have been so bad on the way down cept I had to pee like crazy.  I peed at the gas station before we left at 10am, but by noon at the first checkpoint I was just plain uncomfortable.  My pants were just putting pressure on my bladder and it was still cold even being in the 70's so I was kinda shivering.  It was just...not fun.  We got into town and I went running for the potty.  Two other ppl peed in the potty next to me during the time I was still going. Longest pee ever!  I dont even remember drinking that much to pee out!  I must've been nervous for this ride cuz I knew it would be long. 

Anyways We did some of the poker stops, the boy was hungry so we went to the elementry school and ate their free BBQ sandwhich lunch with chips and pop.  My pop had caffeine.  Prolly shouldn't have drank it for two reasons.  Then we did some more poker runs.  We kinda cheated at one of the stops so I could get two kings.  The boy had nothing.  With my two kings we went about to see when and where the prizes were gonna be.  They kept changing the time and location, but we finally got it about 2:30.  We all stood out in the sun for like an hour or more as Doug talked and that man knows how to talk and for a long time.  One of the first/best hands they said was three kings so I thought I was in the runnings!  But I didn't get there. They had some good prizes tho.  $500 in tires or car repairs or whatnot, dinners, leather, helmets, dinners, movie packages, etc. Harley leather and clothes cost a good chunk of money. I'm sure these drawings and prizes are the only reason Evan wants to come besides riding his bike with other 'cool' ppl. 

Well, we pritti much got baked in the sun at Eureka for no real reason I could see.  They had nice street lights, but it being a town in the middle of no where I'd think they would come up with something they need a lil more...  Like the gas station was pump and then pay inside and with 1,000 plus bikes that need refueling after that trip, that was a loonng line/wait with confusing instructions and ONE card swiper.  Of all the technology....they got street lights.  Whatever.  Even at the elementary school you could see how small the classes/grades were and every classroom had a table of laptops charging for each student.  I would prolly feel better about a charity for education more than street lights, but it seems they already got that covered.... 

Anyway!  I went. I did. I saw. I rode. I peed. I ate. I ached and pained. 

The ride back wasn't so bad as far as being uncomfortable cuz I had to pee, but by now it was just uncomfortable on my butt period. Ain't no comfortable way to sit on that kind of pad even with a backrest.  But I could make it to Logan on a bike with a day or two inbetween riding back. :D 

We went through Saratoga and other places on the other side of UT lake. I don't think I've ever been on that side of the lake before.  Saratoga looked like paradise town, a nice looking community, big houses, big driveways for big boats for the lake, green grass, open areas, a golf course just there on the edge of the lake. 

We grabbed a Redbox on the way home and just crashed about 5pm.  The first day of nice weather and sun and we decide to get baked and travel for too long on a bike.  We cooked up some dinner and started a three hour movie of The Hobbit.  It was nice to just lay there for three hours.  It wasn't nice to feel the heat start radiating from my skin during that time.  Traveling in general wears me out, sunburnt doesn't make me feel good, and the ache and pains from the bike certainly don't help me out.  I just wanted that day to be over. And it finally did around 11:30.  Burnt face and all hit the pillow.

The worst part was thinking about going to church the next day.  I had already gotten a lot of zits from this face cream I been using I think, and now they are burnt zits.  So now I have burnt zitty face and I'm supposed to go to church.  Oy. Needless to say I did not get up until noon.  Buried my face in make up and it didn't look half bad.  My neck and chest were still glowing and they hurt the worst, but I tried to cover it all up with my hair.  It wasn't so bad.
