LUCKY THIRTEEN – FIFTY-TWO NEW THINGS DO TO IN 2013: NO. 37

Lake Overholser  Adventures on the S-curve if life is what I called my husband’s Ural International Rally on September 7, 2013.  His latest and greatest toy is a Russian 2006 Ural motorcycle with a side car.  Being a member of IMZ – Ural club, he learned about the rally and decided to see what he could accomplish in a short time.  There was a list of things to do on that day – sort of like a scavenger hunt.  http://nationalrallyday.com/score_roster.php  For each event you checked off the list you earned a number of points.  He was on his bike for over 11 hours and traveled approximately 214 miles.

Starting with breakfast in Enid, he and a buddy took pictures of the places they traveled during the day with the bike in each picture. 012 The sidecar was first occupied by the friend’s son and then later in the day in Edmond, he picked up our grandson for a ride.  They traveled to places of historical significance and took pictures of members of the military or law enforcement, old trestle bridges, and found a surprise along the way near Crescent.  Hidden from normal view was a 1940 Waco plane where they spoke with the owner and took a picture.  007It’s easy to make friends along the way with what my husband calls “The Ural Factor.”  It is an unusual bike to see in Oklahoma and always attracts attention.

He was tired and sore but I knew he wouldn’t have traded it for anything.  The day turned off very hot which didn’t help his travel, but later in the evening he sat in his recliner, cool and showered with a smile on his face. Life is short – get out and enjoy it.018
