Nighthawk and American Indians

His new mode of transportation is a 1984 Honda Nighthawk 650.  It is the very bike that he longed for just out of high school.  Lo and behold a nearby fellow 47 year-old had to sell the one he bought just out of high school.  Rob took care of this bike like one would a baby, but for 30 years!  It looks and runs brand new, right out of the factory.  Only 10,000 miles, garaged, maintained, etc.  Everything you'd wish for when subconsciously looking for the bike you'd always wanted.  Of course, it will be a little tough to find parts. 

This bike is perfect for a novice rider to fine tune skills, and not get bored. In other words, it's fast, but easy to control.  

Maybe she can pass as American Indian...

Even when there are Dakota Sioux in the neighborhood.

Maybe they are only spiritual kin at this point, but Ms. Raven Hair loves them just the same.
This group of Dakota Sioux has been traveling south through New York state on The Unity Ride mission (read about it through the link).  Today they were in Saugerties and lead the opening ceremony for the equestrian competition at HITS.  Instead of the traditional opening prayer by a local Christian priest, the Dakota sang their beautiful horse prayer.

Definitely watch the 1 hour film on this page.   It's really heart-warming.  Don't we need more of that?
