I am happy to report that I passed my class 6 road test on Wednesday and now have an unrestricted motorcycle licence. This was the last hurdle that I needed to pass in order to pave the way for a long-planned motorcycle adventure. I will be leaving tomorrow morning for a two week vacation (much deserved). The first week will be a golf trip down the west coast with Adam, Joel, and Tom. Tom and I will ditch the wankers for the second week and rent Harleys (Sportster 883s) http://eaglerider.carrentalexpress.com/one_vehicle.php?vid=6164&PHPSESSID=e17b5bd38d78c2bba8c0c7780ced8091. We’ll take them to Arizona and back. We even plan on squeezing in a cowboy adventure while in Arizona. The plan is to go on an overnight pack trip.
My parents worry a little too much about me, IMO. Therefore for the sake of their peace of mind, I elected not to tell them about the motorcycle portion of the trip. As far as they know, I will be golfing for the entire two weeks. There was a close call because my brother Cailean told them my plans. Luckily I narrowly escaped because they believed he was joking. I’ll show them the pictures when I get back. Luckily they don’t know about this blog.
