What a weekend

Saturday morning was an early rise to get over to the west side for the biker blessing. I didn't really want to get Selene blessed, but they had specific parking so she was kind of in the line of fire anyway. They served breakfast, which was fantastic and the blessing prayer that was used was filled with biker slang. Quite entertaining.

After that it was a quick run out to Quispamsis to meet up with a couple of guys from my riding group. We had a coffee at the local Tim Hortons and debated about actually making a run. The sky looked like rain, but the forecast gave it a pretty low chance. We said the heck with it and decided to ride anyway.

Surprisingly enough, it didn't start raining really hard until we were hiding out in the leather shop in Sussex. We browsed and browsed watching the rain come down in buckets. It's a good thing the owners of the shop didn't mind the company.

Once the rain held up we rode out of town and made our way to Hampton for a final coffee break.

Sunday's weather was a heck of a lot better. There was no way I was hanging around the house with all that sunshine. Me and Selene took a nice solo run up through Hampton for a coffee (the new Tims there is becoming a regular biker hang out). While there I saw one of the new Kawasaki Concours which is one beautiful bike. After a short tour around Saint John's water front I headed for home.

I got lots of riding in and even got to know a couple of my chapter's members better. Couldn't have asked for a better weekend.

Congrats on the ride and nice weekend! We had similar weather here in Chicago. Are you in the market for a Concours--I've read great things about it? Best Regards, Sharon

Glad to hear your weather was great too. Ever since the new Concours came out I've been in the market for one. It's one beautiful bike and I can't think of anything better for long distance cruising.

Glad to hear you have riding weather. I was finally able to get out and ride to work two weeks before school let out (early May). Up until then it kept threatening to snow. Now I'm on summer break and the weather is nice, but I'm too busy finishing moving, ugh! All will be right in a few weeks.

Take Care,
Betty :)
