Saddle Sore Retake

Well, Thursday was my Saddle Sore 1,000, ride through six states on the back of a motorcycle, wear down my big, fat butt until I refuse to ever sit down again adventure -- which was postponed due to weather.

I've rescheduled the ride for Tuesday, 15 June, but I've lost my initial get-up-and-get-it-done-no-matter-if-it-kills-me attitude. It's postpartum depression, in a way, but without having a baby -- thank God!

Anyways, I shall try again Tuesday. And this is the seat which will launch a thousand butt miles!

Saddle Sore 1,000

Ain't it pretty? Had the whole thing reupholstered because it was really looking trashy. I would show you a before and after picture, but I was too embarrassed to take the before picture.

So, if you're really interested in this long-distance motorcycle ride and want to read about it from startup until this very moment, then here are the links to all my updates:
