A Short Saturday Drive...

Yesterday, I had a new back tire installed on the V-Star 1100 Classic. I decided to go with a Bridgestone tire again as I was very happy with the last one and the mileage (14,000 KM) that I got out of it. Today, I wanted to get the bike out and get a few kilometers on the new tire, so I did a short run along the beautiful Saint John River.

The weather was a bit cool (17C or 62F), but not uncomfortable. Also, there were many bikes out on the same route I was on; it is a very popular route with the locals as it is so scenic. If you ever make it up here, I will gladly take you on a tour of the river!

I stopped by an old farm house to take a few pics of the river and some of the surroundings. Notice the dandelions are in full bloom.

I have also been playing around with the macro settings on my digital camera and took a few close ups of the dandelions. Most people think of dandelions as weeds, but a field full of dandelions is really a beautiful site! Click on the image for a full view

Not sure if I will get out on the motorcycle tomorrow as the weather forecast is calling for rain. Let’s hope is changes! Ride safe!
