Today I went out searching; searching for a road with many curves. But alas, I found only a few curves and they turned out to be most disappointing. Ontario roadways seem to be designed with efficiency in mind and obviously not designed by a motorcycle enthusiast.
Frustrated with the lack of fun turns on this ride the focus was turned to spotting wildlife. One does not have to drive too far outside of Toronto to find nature. Turkey vultures have to be ugliest of all the birds, and I spotted two of them at the roadside feeding off some fresh road kill. A hawk circles above an open field, a little further up the road is a small pond with Canadian Geese and a couple of ducks. It is not until I stop for gas that I spot the wildest of all the birds, the “biker chick”.
This “biker chick” was on a 250cc Suzuki Marauder. The bike may have been small but the biker chick commanded a large presence on the road. Somehow I knew that even though my motorcycle could easily overtake hers, it would have been unwise to do so. I eased off the throttle and sheepish followed her until I came upon side road that allowed for a quick detour.
