After 1200 miles/1932 kilometers one trip to the motorcycle shop to fix bike, 1 minor forget to put the kickstand down when waiting in line at the border crossing and dropping the bike, I finally find a few minutes to try to capture 3 days of my spectacular journey. My rides are about the people I meet and the adventure. Yes, I like to capture as much of the scenery as possible but it is about the people I meet along the way that I love.
First day, leaving my house in the rain. Traveling NY thruway and a few hundred miles into the ride a couple of guys wanted to talk. Hey, guys, love you but when I have another 400+ miles ahead of me, I prefer a shorter story. They are so cool though, it is as though they have just met a celebrity passing by and they cannot get enough. They would not stop talking.
The next day Sunday, Cecilia and I head over to the motorcycle shop to fix my broken trunk as I always break something on these rides. We head over to Adrian’s place of business and the owner fixes my bike, he was not expecting to work that day but made an exception to help this damsel in distress. Here another example of fantastic Canadian hospitality.
That evening was even more spectacular as Sarah http://biketobc.tumblr.com/ who is planning a solo ride to British Columbia on her Triumph Bonneville T100 comes to meet me. Again, an honor to meet another amazing woman that is going to accomplish her personal achievement by riding her bike great distances while feeling the power of our powerful Triumph Bonneville’s and all the magic is shares with us to travel on two wheels. We exchanged ideas and she will be ready for her journey, I wish her all the best on her ride starting this weekend.
