Day trip before the day starts. 405km loop. Lots of photos
« on: June 19, 2017, 03:51:00 PM »
Taking longer motorcycle trips is getting more and more difficult as there's just too much stuff that needs to be done during the weekends with a young child at home. I figured that if I wanted to get in a full days ride, I had to wake up earlier so that I can be back at a reasonable time to have time to take care of all my regular duties. So on June 10, I set my alarm for 4:15am, had a quick bite and hit the road as planned at 5:00am.



Tire pressure check, everything all loaded up.



Started the bike just as the clock rolled to 5:01am.



No cars on the road, the sun just coming out burning away the fog. Everything is perfect.



Early morning shadows

Deep bay road





This guy appeared in the middle of the road as I approached Minden



Saw this on the side of the road. Decided to stop



Cool views of the rapids without any hiking

Another roadside surprise in Haliburton.







I had to u-turn for this one.





I've seen a lot of turtle crossing signs during my rides. First time seeing it being used.



Moved it to the side of the road so it doesn't get smashed.



The last stretch of the route was less interesting therefore there are no photos. I rolled onto my driveway at 11:15 am ready to start another crazy day.

Looks like the perfect way to start the day!
I like the acc. mount bar between the windshield brackets, been thinking of making one of those myself.

The accessory bar was almost free. I chopped off the end of a broomstick and wrapped it with carbon vinyl I had lying around.
