A Spider In The Family
Yesterday, I took a longish ride of nearly 300 miles. Sadly, I think it is the longest ride I've taken this year. A far cry from last year's fun indeed. It was also the windiest too. Into the 20+ mph wind for 150 miles. Bleh.
The ride was worth it though. I got to spend the afternoon with family. My uncle rode up on his new CanAm spider. We had a nice time chatting about riding. The CanAm looks pretty comfy, but way out of my price range at $26,000. I could buy two Urals for that kind of cash. Actually, thinking about it now, I could buy all my bikes for less than that and have plenty left over for accessories.
I should have asked him if I could ride it, but I was busy visiting and stuffing my face. It was a nice time.
