Motorcycle Toy Run (Benefits Salvation Army I think?)
I’m going to try to do two of these this year.
The first is Quesnel’s. Sunday September 7th. Starts at Sylvia’s Cafe and finishes at the Quesnel Museum.
The second is Prince George. Sunday September 28th. Need more details.
This is mostly just a reminder to myself, but if anyone is intersted in riding with me, just drop me a line.
These should be fun. I’ll be trying to get together with Greg and Kate in PG for the PG one. Maybe they’ll come down for this one. My motorcycle instructor, Ian, whom I rode the Poker Ride with is planning on doing both as well – and has offered to caravan up to PG with me that sunday.
Well, I went for a ride with Greg and Kate today. We hopped on the bikes and followed Greg’s parents out the the Yorston Farm and had Cinnamon Buns. They have an event called Cinnamon Sunday each Sunday in May. Buns are 1$ each and really, really yummy. We took some curvy roads home. (Yorston Farm, incidentally, is where we went to the super awesome corn maze last year, and will be going again this fall.)
When I got home I changed my oil and filter in my bike. Nice clean oil now, will be dirty in a day or two. The curvy roads were fun, and Greg brought the extra pieces for my left fairing, so I can hopefully tighten up my dash and whatnot. Sweetness.
Tom, Chris, Scott, Sam and I worked on putting together Ivy’s new swing set! She loves it, it has one baby swing in the middle, two big kid swings, a slide and a teeter-totter. The whole thing was enjoyed by all of the kids, because Mel brought her little ones, Ally and James over as well! Super awesome sunny Sunday. (And it was Sun-Day as well, nice and warm at about 22*C)
Then we had some yummy barbecued pork chops, courtesy of Samantha. Salad too – the first and only thing I ate today other than a cinnamon bun. It was super to sit outside with the family and enjoy some dinner.
After dinner Samantha and I cleaned the barbecue, CLR and Scotch-Pads baby! We scrubbed and hosed and sprayed and cursed and cleaned and rinsed and …. whew! The BBQ should be nice and clean for next thing we cook on it – maybe ceder plank salmon tomorrow night.
I also managed to get our three herb pots planted, the three pepper plants and the extra herbs in the herb garden in the back. I’m hoping my garlic chives and leeks do well back there too – the rubarb is still scrawny, it hasn’t put down good roots yet. Maybe I should find some good food safe fertilizer to drop down back there. We have parsley and something else new – can’t even remember what I planted.
Then, to finish off the night Chris, Sam and I put some Mario Kart Wii on and raced ourselves silly. I have to get my sorry, sunburned butt to work in the morning, so I’m about to crash now. See y’all later!
Welcome to summer time!

Born to be wiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiild!
I passed my Motorcycle Skills Test today. That means I have had the supervisor and skill restrictions removed from my licence. I can now legally exceed 60 km/h and drive without a supervisor.
I have my drivers test on Thursday at 10:15am. I need to get some practice in before then – I’m hoping this head cold pulls a vanishing act.
I’m still hoping to take a motorcycle course sometime soon. This can get me commuting though. Props to all those who gave me a hand with practice time etc. when I needed it!
I got my bike! After years of working towards getting a bike Sam helped me get one. I’ll be using it for day to day transportation to and from work, as well as a little bit of extra solo riding.
I need to get my MST (motorcycle skills test) done so that my liscence will have the 60km/h speed limit and supervisor restrictions removed so that I can commute on it until I do my road test and get my full Class 6 designation.
Until then, a couple of pics. We’ll start with a pretty girl on a motorcycle, cause that’s pretty cool, then some pics of me on my bike in my gear. (Minus my awesome Alter-Ego armoured pants that I didn’t want to pull on just for a pic.)
