It's always a hoot to ride with new riders, it's another opportunity to check out riding styles, levels and of course talk more about bikes and biking adventures / mis-adventures. The last few days has been just that getting to hear and know more about three NSW riders and it's also much fun hearing their particular thoughts on the riding roads I call my home patch.
Even when you all ride together in a posse, you still manage to get differing stories, moments and perceptions. Such as one may have a skippy cross their path, or loosing you lightbulbs, someone else sees a lovely distant view or simply start sweating bullets when a certain yellow & black stingy hitchhiker manages to work their way into your helmet through the air vents while riding..! It's these things that make each riding trip a mini adventure and makes it stick in your brain.
For me, today certainly showed me (again) how wonderful it is to be on bigger bikes, and at times I just wanted to be a pillion to be ridden around just to soak the amazing vistas as they swooped by while nearly red-lining the lawnmower. He. He.
Harb, damedi & inztigator have certainly covered many kms of this patch of Oz in the best time of year. Apart from their welcome day, the rest has all been sunshine and beaut temps for their riding pleasure But all good things must come to and end, and today after a solid day on the saddle with them and CaffeineMonster , was our final farewells.
I will leave you with some random photos of your trip (with kms shared) and I hope we'll ride again sometime soon; you've all been a hoot...
Best of luck to you three in your future riding adventures !
See you round & ya'll come back soon!
