The Rough Draft

If you can't go through it. Go around it.

BIKEThe Bike at Sharbot Lake Ontario, sometime before lunch.  As usual, the bike is having a great time while I’m nowhere to be found.  The truth is I didn’t feel like unpacking the tripod, so you get the Iphone picture instead.  Yes, I am ashamed.

As with any trip things were forgotten.  Chain lube for one.  I’ll try to pick some up tomorrow.  Good thing Quebec is bike mad or that might be difficult.  And I forgot the charger for my Iphone.  Which isn’t a big deal but it looks like my Sony Action Cam, won’t charge off of my computer.  I need a USB with at least 1.5A.  I can probably use  the USB on the bike to charge it.  I’ll try it and see tomorrow.  I just have to make sure the camera is properly cushioned.

I also learned that too much tire pressure in my front knobby is a bad thing.  Almost went into a tank slapper about ten minutes from home.  I reduced speed until things settled down.  Couldn’t get the bike above 90Kmh which made the ride through the GTA… interesting.

I drained out some air by Peterborough and things settled down for a bit until the tire warmed up and things got tight again.  It took a bit of experimentation but I thin a little bit more out of the tire tomorrow and things will be fine, as I had her up over a hundred by the end of the day.

I rode up the North side of Lac Saint Pierre today and it’s really pretty in this part of Quebec.  Nice bike roads too and other than the sketchy front end, the bike handled like a champ.  Other than a little bit of drizzle when I made my way through Scarborough, it was a dry day, though I threw the rain gear on just by Peterborough just in case which of course scared the rain away to leave me sweating.

Tomorrow I head for Baie Comeau, 530Kms away.  We’ll see how the weather is.  If it’s fair, I’ll probably push on.  If it’s crap, I’ll call her a day and dry out in the hotel and see what Monday brings.  So far other than a few technical glitches, this has been a great day of riding.

The Rough Track for today.  You’ll have to scroll through the list to see the full track as it’ll only list 50 way points.

Talk to you guys tomorrow.
