Well, today was a flurry of activity from the moment I woke up today. First order of business was to get coffee ... Then I hopped out to the garage and finally installed my Givi racks on to the new bike, the hardware I needed for it FINALLY arrived this week. After that I had to rush to make lunch and make a trip to the landfill with the trailer and my truck. I've had a trailer full of garbage since early spring sitting in front of my garage from when I cleaned it up and started putting my man-cave back together ... the back roads were shit and it took wayyy longer than I had thought. Pulling the bike out of the garage, I put a tiny ding in the tank as it tapped the door opening as I pushed it through (it's a man door from my workshop in the back of the garage to the front). ... thankfully, it's only noticeable to me because I know it's there now. I was rushed because I promised a buddy that I'd help diagnose and fix his Gixxer (charging issue). It ended up being the R/R and he'll have to wait a little longer to ride his bike. After that, I popped by the nearest Canadian Tire to buy some foaming glass cleaner to keep in my bags. I can't believe how much I missed having the hard luggage on my bike. The tank bag worked, but it really limited what I could carry / wear. Now I can pack my heated jacket liner and rain gear in the cases and have them with me all the time. I can also go shopping and have storage ... whether it be to put my helmet in the top case or if I buy stuff that I need to take home. ... the weather was gorgeous today and I was enjoying the ride, so I decided to take the long way home through Birds Hill Provincial Park. It's on my way home, only live about 20 minutes from it. The smell of campfires and BBQ had me longing for summer to hurry up and get here in full force so that I can go my motorcycle camping trips real soon.
