When did we turn 40?
Sam just bought a 2004 Yamaha FJR 1300. I just bought a 2000 BMW R1100RT. When did either of us turn into old men?
It looks like it's going to be a summer of long hauls for me. I'll ride the bike to Whitehorse to go on a canoe trip with Sam and others on the Wind River. Then I'll ride it to Ontario for APSA in September and then leave the bike at my parents' place. I'll return later that month to make the James Bay run again, but this time adding on my Dad and Trevor (they'll be on ST1100s, so I am looking forward to some swapping and testing out the different rides). And we won't be on the North Road. It's going to be a great end to a great summer of riding. Even if we're doing it on old men bikes.
And the summer after that? Hello South America.
