It was good to hear from you, and I’m really excited about the project. I’ll answer as best I can your questions.
I love the bike! I’d take it just as it is, and ride with the biggest damn smile on my face that you ever did see. 🙂
I’m not sure about the color yet. I’d probably go for the regular factory style handlebars. I think for sure I’ll need a full length seat so I can take Tam with me when I ride.
She said she’d be scared to ride with me, but I don’t know why. I started riding mini bikes and motorcycles when I was 5.
I had a Honda 125 when I was like 8 or 9 years old. I had to get on it by standing on a milk crate. I’d take off from a dead stop, ride for as long as I wanted, and then just have to stop and fall over. :). So I think the only thing she’ll have to worry about is my laughing uncontrollably on my first ride out of sheer joy!
I love the plan of a ride on the Blue Ridge Parkway. I didn’t realize it was that long. How many states does it go through? I would one day like to do a cross country ride. My Dad and I used to talk about doing that. No maps, no real desitination except head West. If I ever the chance Rex, I’m gonna do it.
I’m looking at the pictures of the bike and I wonder is there any way a small fairing would fit on there? Not like a huge Goldwing type thing, just a small one, big enough to hold a radio and a couple of speakers? I’d love to be able to ride with some music…?
I have this dream of one day returning to Florida to visit.
The last time I was there, I remember heading North out of St. Pete across the Howard Franklin Bridge. I remember looking back at the city I called home and wondering to myself if I would ever see it again.
So now my dream is to head back across that bridge one day. This time heading South with the song, “Take the Long Way Home” blasting out of the speakers of whatever I’m in or on.
I’ve got some other ideas I’ll run by you later on and if you think it’s even possible. I think the black wall tires you already have will look great on it. I’m also sending a logo that I really like.
Instead of saying Illinois Innocence Project, it could say across the top “Free Jamie Snow” and at the bottom we’ll put the date I’m set free? What do you think?
Ok, I guess for now I’ll end this here and get it in the mail. I hope all is well out there with you and the family. Tell Rhonda I said hi.
Be safe and write when you can.
