Long Way Down

First off, let me say I am sad to see the season ending. Although some would think it to have already ended the weather here in Toronto has been great this past week, with clear skies and temperatures in the mid to high teens (celsius).

Secondly, I am sad to report still more damage to Red Molly. A little over a week ago I left work to find that someone had hit my parked motorcycle and done some damage – nothing too serious, but the front brake lever snapped (so no front brakes) and some scuffs to the rear fender. Someone had witnessed the accident and told me it was a guy on a bicycle who knocked it over, picked it back up, then cycled on his merry way. As the season was almost done and with money tight I decided to cancel my insurance and park the bike.

And finally, I thought I’d share a link to Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman’s incredible motorcycle trip and documentary, Long Way Down. In 85 days they covered 15,000 miles from John O’Groats to Cape Town. At this website you can watch clips of the doc and read blog posts. An inspiring trip. Check it out here.

I’m collecting some info on storing your motorcycle over the winter that I’ll post soon, so stay tuned!
