A Moment in Time on a Motorcycle

I ran across these pictures the other day from a trip out to Yellowstone on my 98 Softail a few years ago. Right after I finished visiting Hell's Half Acre, which is a small gorge in the middle of Wyoming's desert plain. I stopped at a rest stop to cook some ramen for lunch when this couple ran up to me.

The man said, "that he always wanted a motorcycle and a Harley." He explained that he never got around to it in his life and was sorry about it all. He seemed pretty emotional when he asked if he could sit on my motorcycle. The ignition was locked, so I said go ahead man have at it. He then asked if I would take a picture of him and his wife next to the bike and email it to him later, which I did.

Later on while back on the road, I couldn't help thinking how lucky I was.  To be on this road at this moment, doing something that others only dream of.
