Finally summer has arrived in our part of the world. It was time to get the dust off the bike and out of the garage after the long and wet winter months. The weather was perfect for a ride out with hubby as my usual riding buddy.
Just to get the bum and hands in condition again we took a leisurely drive mainly on tar roads today and made some stops to log a cache or two. The camaraderie on the road by fellow riders, extending a nod in recognition no matter what the steed, always gives a warm feeling to my heart and just makes the ride more worth while.
Everybody is enjoying the sun, the smells and the wide open roads our country has on offer and unlike a car you get to experience all the smells along the road which varies from the aromatic veld to the exhaust fumes of a truck, but hey that is what it is all about – experience life with all your senses.
And what is a ride without a drinks breaks? For the necessary we pulled over at Hokaai along the N2 to get replenished. All of a sudden you realize again, when taking off your ATGAT gear, that you need to occupy two tables although you are the only people in the establishment.
Not a lot can compete with that first ride of the summer! Thank you riding buddy for always looking out for me on the road. 😉
