Realtor's Bike Blog

Real Estate Agent with Okanagan Desert Country Realty

Sigh, it's snowing....if you're a skier, snowboarder, or snow plow operator, I guess you're happy!   At least I hope you are and I begrudge you nothing..... sort of.  Nuff said on that part of the topic. 

I am about to drag myself off to the couch, plop down, grab my coffee and watch "American Thunder".  If I can't ride, at least I can dream of riding, watch someone else ride, or see all of the excellent bikes and trikes.  Tis the season for withdrawel....lalalalala  lala lala. 

I'm fortunate to live where I do, small town, know most of the folks here, and they just put up with me.  I actually show homes on my bike, and haven't had a bad comment yet....course, the leathers are good for closing, unless people are easily intimidated  :-)

Anybody else out there that incorporates their lifestyle into their daily business routine?

All you riders out there (even the wannabes).... send me in your comments, tell me what you ride (or what you would like to ride), where you ride, etc...and what associations you belong to.

Special thanks to Kay Van Kampen for suggesting this!!!!  Where are you Kay, let's get this puppy fired up!

Lee - I'll be first. I have been riding for 32 years and the last 29 have been on harley's. Cindy and I are long distance riders...we ride hard, far, and year around.

I've got a few hundred thousand miles and counting, dropped a few, but have never had an accident.

Our riding is the main reason I left the corporate world and got involved in real estate.

I have not ever used my bike in real estate nor do I plan to. I feel it would limit my business. My real estate business provides me the income and time to ride as I want. I believe that my ride would limit my business.

Lee, Today, my husband and 15 other bikers with for a 100 mile ride around the back roads to the Branson area.  About 60 degrees, perfect for riding - - - - while I worked real estate.  He is with a group called the "Retreads".  Let me tell you, there are a lot of these in this area.  I think they are being imported.  We also use our bike to deliver signs and lock boxes.  I'll find a photo and send to you soon.   Whoopee!!!!!!!!!!!A Biker blog!

HarleyThis is my husband's and mine.  It is quietly sitting under the cover a waiting warmer dry weather.  We were able to take her out this past Sunday.  A bit cold but not as bad when sun is out.  Indiana has been having some exceptional weather the last couple of days but work doesn't give us the opportunity to go out.
