Last Saturday, we went down to visit Ty's best buddy, Wes. Wes has two motorcycles. One is a BMW sport bike, and the other is a street legal dirtbike. Ty had a 250 dirtbike when he was a teenager. Him and the guys used to drive for hours from farm to farm. So, he's an old pro.Ty and Wes came up with the great idea for all of us to go for a ride. I rode with Wes, who is a more seasoned rider.
One thing that Ty and I have lots of is helmets. We actually brought 3 with us. My mom gave me this pink one. It's a top quality helmet. It fits great, and the visor shuts completely!
Ty wore his racing helmet. I bought this for him for Christmas when we were first together. Still one of my favourite memories. I kept it a secret, and you should've seen his face when he opened it. He was like a little kid. :D
We rode around town for a while, then stopped for coffee at this uber cool coffee shop. This is an old double-decker bus. How cool is that?!
Then we went out on some country highways. Lots of curvy corners. Most of the way, it was only 80 km/h. The thing I noticed more than anything is that you can smell all the smells! The country smells so good! I even love the smell of manure. No, really! It reminds me of my friends' farm that was my favourite place on earth when I was a kid. Happy memories. :)
We stopped at a day camp area by the river. When you're biking, you have to take lots of breaks. Especially when you're on bikes like these.
It was a lovely pitstop.
We managed to make it back home before it started raining. All in all, it was a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon. I can't wait to do it again!
