Cool Ride


I woke up around 7:20am this morning and painfully dragged myself out of my bed to go to riding with Nat since it was the only time she could go riding and I wanted to take her out riding for a bit and get some experience under her belt. So we met up in the morning at Marina Cresent parking and I was flying to get there on time, but since it was so early I was late! Only 10 minutes though! So we went riding down the Gulf Road and then to the Mansooriya Gas station through the Second Ring Road and then we went back and got on the Fahaheel Express to come back the other way down the Gulf Road starting at Miseela. I have to say that she took some bumpy roads pretty well and she is pretty good around the turns. I had one eye on the road and the other on the side view mirror! She was doing great and with a few more rides she will easily be overtaking me and making me look like a wuss! After an hour and a bit of riding she had to go so I rode with her until she got home and then I took off to Marina Cresent Starbucks to get something to drink and eat!

I got a hot chocolate this time but the same Dark Chocolate cake as from the previous day. I was just reading through a newspaper while I finish up my cake and hot chocolate, after I was satisified I decided to head out and as I was approaching the parking lot I caught Mark just parking his bike! I thought this couldn’t have been timed better, so we headed out together and caught the TriStar meetup at Green Island it was great there were a lot of bikes and families! I love seeing get togethers like these and TriStar does a good job getting people together.

There was a Ducati 1098s which was parked on its own and it really had to be since it was a thing of beauty. I was thinking for a while to pickup a 999S to fix up but after seeing the 1098s that idea went to the scrapper! It is beautiful and the redesign is on spot. I can’t get the bike out of my head and this isn’t good for me! I can’t stop thinking about it! Damn it! What a bike! Just when I wanted to take pictures I pulled out my camera, switched it on, and the screen said no memory stick… suddenly I had the urge to break it but I held myself back and realized I was an idiot for not putting in the chip before leaving!

Then me and Mark kept on riding since we had other things planned and couldn’t participate in this event. And we kept enjoying ourselves on the road! Mark has improved a lot and he is getting into the groove of things! There is a flow to his riding which is very good, hopefully he will keep going at this pace!
