So I was sitting at home Saturday night. Just playing on my computer. Had just bought a new helmet cam. www.vholdr.com
I had to try it out. I was playing with a night ride video from around the house. Quality wasn't all that grat after dark. Well about 10pm rolls around. My cell phone rings. Hey Tom what ya doing tomorrow? No plans at the moment. Wifes family is staying with us. Why what's up? We have about a half dozen guys that are riding on Sunday and want you(me) to show us another area that you(I) know well. Let me check with the wife and see what's happening for Sunday. Call you back. Wife says go ride if you want to ride. Don't have to tell me twice. The Blackbird was itching to get out and stretch her legs some. Call back. OK I'm in. See you at the meet spot.
I'm the second one there in the morning. The one person that was ahead of me. I can't explain it. But when we ride together. Something happens to me. I see the road clearer and run a much harder pace than normal. He's already got coffee and waiting on me. A little time goes by. All of a sudden there's 12 or 14 bikes there. Wow where'd thay all come from. Not many posted up for showing. Most I have already riden with. But several I didn't know. No cruisers showed up. Naked's and SS bikes with a ZX-14 to go with the bird. Lookin like it will be a good ride.
The very first road. One kid on a lowered 600 goes down. Damn, not a good way to start the ride. Kid is ok, already has his bike out of the ditch before the whole group gets turned around and gets back to him. THere was a young couple two up on an old FZR600. No gear but had helmets on. I'm not one to preach. We all know the deal out there. Anyways the kid that crashed goes home. He's rattled and sore. The couple I ask to just take it easy and ride at a moderate pace. Well the rest of the ride went well. Enjoy some of the flat roads of Florida.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eCW-o1o55fUhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S2iCEGycMDohttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=17cEBgJ55Xs
