I can't stress enough how happy this sunlight and dare I say warmth made us. We would switch out to our cold and wet gloves to dry them out while riding so we could keep our dryer stuff dry: just in case. A beautiful ride along the St Lawrence let us ride in great weather while seeing the storms out in the bay. Our first ferry crossing was soon after, this one free! I guess it is cheaper for the province to run this system over putting a bridge in. I discovered that I could track where my photos were taken easier by just snapping off a screen cap of google maps when it could connect, even when we are not really on a road. This is every day work for this crew. They do not have tie downs for the bikes or anything. Trailers have to chock their wheels and that is it. It was about a 15 min boat ride and the water was calm. Load on, wait a tick, load off. They dont mess around as they have a schedule. Do not fuck it up. As we hopped off and started immediately up another hill again it became grey, but still dry. Our pairing as per communications still kept me shooting the shit with Meaty when we felt like talking. We could both put on music should we want as well and that was how I spent a good amount of time before clicking over to wax cathartic nostalgia with an old friend. We commented how the other KTM owners we passed probably should invite me into their club, where they all pool money to afford parts for these damn things. The KLR just chugged away reliable as a farm tractor. Captain Mustache and Beardy Face had linked coms and rode front and rear guard respectively. Apparently corrections in speed were relayed from Beardy's GPS to our leader and a good thing as we came down a mountain and a Police cruiser popped out of a side road and lit up. It took down the mustang behind us- whew-. A quick splash and dash for fuel (me) and we were off. Captian 'Stashe allowed his secret weapon to see the light of day: The Rainbow Warrior Suit. Speak of it in hushed tones when making fun of it. It has been in his luggage for many years and some have even had to borrow it for survival. Fashion is no fickle thing when you can wear such a high functioning garment. Though he did wear it as a base layer as he did not feel the need to scream its' existence to the world.
