It was gorgeous weather in NY this holiday weekend and today with downpours and expected flooding I’m so happy I got to get out and enjoy it. Speaking of getting out and enjoying…this weekend I did something that I never thought I’d do (but kind of secretly always wanted to) and in the name of research, I stepped out of my comfort zone and went for it.
I rode on a motorcycle for the first time!
Now for a total fraidy cat like me this is a huge deal. But you see in the book that I’m currently working on my hero rides a motorcycle and of course has to give my heroine a ride or two. Stop laughing.
Now I have quite the imagination and can flow with making up how I think she would feel being on the bike but I really wanted to experience it for myself. And thanks to a great friend and neighbor and her kind motorcycle riding friend (Thanks so much!), there I was going for my first ride. That a thrill!
I think My DH was in total shock as I rode off. The last time I was on a bike it was on a moped over 20 years ago in the Bahamas on our honeymoon and I may have shrieked in his ear the whole time. This time I made it through with more smiles than shrieks and now I’m ready to rock my on the bike scenes after facing my fear and doing something completely out of my comfort zone.
Tell me is there anything you are waiting to step out of the zone and do?
