I have been itching for a ride for over a month. It has been cold and snowy, freezing at night and thawing during the day. Today, the sun came out strong, temperature climbed to a eventual 10C. Texted my brother and a friend, three of us went for a 150km ride.
Once I remembered to set the choke, the Zephyr started up happily. We cruised up to a local dam, the view was spectacular. The reservoir was unusually low, may be it will fill up once the mountains shed their snow caps. Otherwise, it will be restricted water-use all summer again.
The snow on the roadside didn’t deter us a bit. We went to our favourite twisties and had a fun time. We stayed close to the centre line to avoid sand and debris. That’s typical early spring riding. Can’t wait till summer, we have many motorcycle road trips planned this year. We got home just after 4pm and warmed up with a nice glass of red wine.
