Happy Hour Fun Without Strippers

The forecast looks likes rain for about the next week, here on the East Coast of Newfoundland. So Doug and Craig and I quit work early and spent the afternoon riding the coastal roads.

It was great to finally get a close up look at Craig's new F800GS. He handed me the keys, and very kindly offered me a test ride, but I just couldn't bring myself to ride a friend's bike that's so damn new. This was Craig's first time taking the new Beemer out for a ride of any real distance. She's a truly fine machine, Craig. I hope I can take a raincheck on that testride, after you've had a chance to put a few dents and dings of your own on her.

Oh and Doug...

Have I mentioned? Those handguards look great, dude! They really improve the look of the Versys, bigtime.



Here's the snaps from our very enjoyable Friday afternoon ride in the warm-ish eight degree weather...

Me, Doug, and Craig...The Three Stooges...

It's seems to be a year when half the riders I know have new bikes. There has to be at least a dozen new rides among the RTR guys, this year.

We listen to a lot of Supertramp, here. It really helps.

We were in Newfoundland last summer, but it's great to see Newfoundland with bikes in the picture! I'd love to see more of your rides and the great Newfoundland scenery!
