Goober's bike ride!

So Goober went for a bike ride with me! I tried out her flight harness today and she took to it instantly! I took a nip or two in the process of getting it on him but she could care less now.

I put on her little leash on and she hopped up on my shoulder and went for a ride around the neighborhood! She preened herself, chattered and mumbled and squacked a bit at the wild quakers She did so good! She loved the wind in his feathers and was perfectly at home. She's just so easy going! Here are some photos of us in the driveway before the ride

Well that's pretty awesome. Just mind the brakes don't send the poor bird down to the pavement. :P

Seriously though, that looks like more fun than riding a bike with a parrot. Actually it looks exactly as much fun as riding a bike with a parrot.

The best is the odd looks I get from the neighbors - most won't ask me or approach me, they just look at me like I'm insane!

Aw, she would've had a ball outside with you and hearing the other birds, looks like you's had lots of fun!

Goober looks completely at ease . I notice you're still making the adjustment to her being a "she" . The pics are great, you two look like the perfect couple.

Pass a little kid and explain to him that the parrot lifts you into the air while you ride. When he says "Whoa, really?" just reply "No, you're a stupid kid."

Actually, I copied and pasted that from the Linnie forum, back when I thought she was a he, and I tried to fix all of them, must've missed one or two

Haha, I actually told a 14 year old that Rice was a vegetable that grew on trees today But she was a friend's kid, so I didn't feel so bad! We were at a Japanese Garden and Museum and she asked where rice came from, her parents told her it was a starchy vegetable like a potato, so... I told her it grew on rice trees! She believed me for a few seconds then I laughed and ruined it!
