Weekend Ride!

The weather has been amazing which has resulted in a great start to our riding season.  I took Friday afternoon off work and went on a leisurely 250 kilometer solo ride on the Street Glide.  Just me, the open road and U2 blasting on the stereo...it was great!

Saturday, I got the Buell 1125R out of storage and ready for the road!  The morning consisted of quick wash jobs on both the 1125R and the Street Glide and then it was off for an afternoon rip on the 1125R.

Earlier in the week, my friend Luc and I decided that we would head out for a long ride on Sunday!  We weren't sure if we were going to go in "Cruise" mode or "Sportbike" mode.  On Sunday morning we decided to go with the Sportbikes.  Luc and I connected early in the morning and were off, he on his CBR1000RR and I on the 1125R.  As per usual, we had no real destination in mind, we just wanted to ride.  Here is the 370 kilometer loop we ended up doing: Fredericton, Harvey Station, St. Andrews, Dipper Harbour, Saint John, Fredericton.


I will let the pictures do the rest of the talking, enjoy!

A fitting end to the day!

A quick stop at a local gas station and conversation with fellow bikers proved to be a fitting end to a great day of riding!  To quote my friend, Jeff S. aka @JoeRocket, "until next time, a low, slow wave."
