Let me introduce myself. I am Pulchritude the Piglet and I am a motorcycle. I have the privilege of being one of the authors on this site, and by golly, I deserve it since I tote these other two goofballs around!
Really, in truth, Ronn and Lisa are pretty good to me. They make sure I am always clean and if I get dirty from a road trip they are quick to clean me up. They always make sure I get my regularly scheduled service; well really, Ronn does that and the cleaning, too. Lisa just mainly rides. When they go somewhere together, Lisa rides on the back because Ronn just can’t quite bring himself to ride in back of her. He told me the other day that it’s not really that he is embarrassed, as it is that he’s not real sure if Lisa can handle the extra weight. Because, you know, it really is pretty different riding with someone on back of you than by yourself. I know when they are both riding, I just can’t go as fast. Geez, I was only built with a little 883 engine, which is how I came about being named Piglet. I am not quite big enough to be a Hog, so they call me Piglet.
And the Pulchritude part, well, that means A-mazing beauty. And, let me tell you, I AM a beauty, too! I am solid black, although when Lisa buys me, she promises to paint me a most gorgeous shade of pink. Right now, Ronn owns me, but Lisa says she is going to buy me. Personally, I really don’t care who owns me; I just want to be pink! I love pink!
I have a cool little silver wing thing on both sides of my gas tank that signify I am an Anniversary model–a 100th year Anniversary model to be exact. So, if you know anything about Harley, you know that makes me a 2003 model. Yep, I am three years old! In motorcycle years, though, I am really still brand new. I mean, you should see me! I may be little, but I am pretty!
Well, that about does it for today! Really, I just wanted to introduce myself and let you know that I will keep you updated on happenings with Ronn and Lisa and all the cool places they are going to take me. Lisa just got back from taking me to Dallas. It was great trip for me, but I think it stressed her a little. She got a little nerve-wrecked driving in the metroplex. She even got lost a few times, but surprisingly, she kept her cool. She can be a little quick to fire sometimes, but I can tell she is making progress. I am sure she will post about her trip and tell you about it from her perspective, but for now, my pistons are tired. They are not really made for typing, ya know!
