I’ve collated all the photos of Dollfie Dream Horo in Colorado into one post, that doesn’t also include all the travel aspects. It seemed a bit mean to ‘force’ people only interested in Horo or Dollfies to go through my whole trip log, all nine pages of it, just to find the photos. So here […]
It would seem that it’s becoming an annual tradition to travel down and visit my favourite state in ‘murica. Three years running I’ve visited the “colorful” state of Colorado, each year with a different idea of how to tackle the state. This year I chose by motorcycle and it was easily the best visit yet. I covered a lot of ground and probably did so too quickly, which of course just means I’ll have to go back ;).
Up until now I’d (usually) referred to my Dollfie Horo as “almost Horo”, she was missing something important in establishing her identity. Recently however that particular item arrived.
Originally this meet up was supposed to take place on Toronto island again, however due to the 41st Festival of India taking place there we opted to go with our backup plan. Then we were reminded that the Honda Indy Toronto race was taking place which would make downtown crazy. And on top of that, there were parades and other festivals, so a last minute change of venue was made and we visited Edwards Garden just off Sunnybrook Park, far away from the downtown core.
Long weekends are the perfect weekends to plan quick trips around. You get a free day off thanks to observed holidays, and even if you have to book time off work you don’t have to waste as much vacation hours. Canada Day weekend I decided to really test out my bike, the camping gear I purchased, and how well I would handle great distances alone on a motorcycle.
This past Saturday I attended yet another Dollfie meet with the Toronto crowd. It was a smaller meet than the April meet was, but there was a guest from a good distance away, Otakusan. And so, we headed to Toronto Island for a pot luck picnic beside lake Ontario with downtown Toronto as our backdrop.
I haven’t gotten tired of showing off my new bike yet. So here are a few more photos from a recent ride through the country side. Farm, farm as far as the eye can see. I wonder what they’re growing?
This past Tuesday I finally made a decision on which side cases I was going to install on my V-strom. The 8″ Odyssey II system by Jesse Luggage.
