On a beautiful Sunday afternoon in Markham (September 10th actually) we heard the unbelievable sound of an F18! He made 6 passes over our house and back over to Buttonville airport in a huge sweeping bank. He was so low that we could see the pilot!
Mike is doing great with his hip recovery. We have been going to the gym 2 – 3 times a week and have just started mountain biking again…first time in over 20 years!
If you can’t be bothered to get the bikes out in March…..on a +18C day….you must be spoiled by 2 weeks of riding in Mexico..right? RIGHT!!
We spent the day in the backyard cleaning up the downed branches, listening to the returning birds, smelling the wonderful fresh earth smells of spring….and burning stuff….(my favorite)….but not riding…….!
It was not an entirely lost bike weekend though…we had an R6 and a KLR make it down the long, wet, pot-holed driveway for a visit…wow even at idle the R6 is a treat for the ears…
Friday night was a “Team Wally” get toghether and Supercross Party at the Spicres (great job guys)..to get ready for the Toronto Supercross next Saturday…..has it really been 28 years ago since we all met and started riding together…..wow and the numbers are growning…the next generation of riders gets bigger every year…this year the Toronto Supercross will see 50 of us in our section…
Wow what a beautiful day in Markham. Outside all day doing yard work and listening to the Harley’s on the neighbouring streets. It is currently 9:00 and 13 degrees….the trees are in bud and the robins have arrived.
We could be riding any day over the next 2 weeks as the temps are double digits and the skys are going to be clear.
Where should we go this summer…how do you top the “Divide Ride”, or the “Coast to Coast Ride”???
Ok so I have figured out that loading the pictures at a MUCH smaller size will help most of you view the blog….sorry I had no idea it was taking so long for everyone to view…and this might have helped me stay on track to complete the blog while on the road…..Mike and I have been spending 1 to 2 hours a night loading pictures from the 5 cameras on this trip (ours and friends) and organizing them to post on the blog….
