Hector!! (See picture below)
We got him a couple of weeks ago. Not sure why we named him Hector. All I know is it started on the bike ride to bring him back home. Because the trailer was empty, it was flying all over the place whenever I hit bumps and since cars kept slowing down thinking we were pulling kids my partner started yelling "careful with Hector!!" Whenever my bike was hitting bumps lol.
We looooove Hector! Takes a little getting used to but it's expending the options of our car-free experiment exponentially!
Last weekend was our first trip to Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue with Hector. I pulled it empty on the way there, my partner pulled it full lost of the way back. I took over for the last couple of hills.
Whenever we're not pulling the trailer we feel like we're flying on our bikes lol. So it feels like it is a pretty good strength workout :)
Tomorrow night we're off to see Lewis Black. I can't wait!! We're even gonna ride the motorcycle to head downtown. It's going to be lots of fun. :)
Fri and Sat is more riding with my friend to get her to practice before her road rest. (Can't believe I didn't practice at all between the closed circuit test and the road test when I got my licence so many years ago!!)
It feels like the motorcycle sitting was the perfect opportunity for me to ease my way back into it and be ready to buy my own next year.
