So I coworker of mine is going away on vacation. And I'm babysitting his motorcycle while he's away :D
I went to the store yesterday to buy an extra helmet for my partner, a mesh jacket and gloves for myself. And today I drove the motorcycle from my office to our house.
I hadn't driven in so long, I was pretty nervous but it went super well.
So well that after supper my partner decided to come with me on a little errand to the atm. It was just a short easy ride to get used to the motorcycle on top of getting used to riding with a passenger.
We caught a little rain but it didn't last so we decided to go get an ice cream at our favorite spot.
Overall it was a very laid back ride and I'm getting more and more used to the motorcycle so it was a lot of fun. We're planning to go to Lewis Black's show during the just for laughs festival next week riding the bike instead of renting a car.
This weekend I will meet up with another coworker who's learning to ride because the way the licensing process works here is that once you have done your close circuit exam, you have a temporary licence which only allows you to ride with another rider if that person has had his or her real licence for at least 2 years.
Since I've had mine for close to 10 years without ever owning a bike lol I will be my coworker's buddy so she can practice before her road test.
I am also planning to attend a family dinner over the weekend. I haven't told them I'd be riding a motorcycle to get there!
So yeah I'm pretty excited. + my partner told me it is now time. That I just have to make a budget so I can buy my own motorcycle next spring. :D
I'll try to attach the pic of my temporary baby that I took on my phone...
