One Wild Ride

When I was 20 years younger my husband and I would go riding on his dirt bike and it was one wild ride!  He put pegs on the back of his bike so I had a place to put me feet, since dirt bikes are a “one man” bike.  I’d hang on for my life (lol) as we went zipping along.  He is now thinking about getting a street bike, like the one in the One Wild Ride Set.

Besides having a wonderful motorcycle image the One Wild Ride set is full of great greetings.  It is a perfect set to make cards for the guy in your life.
