Twas the night before .... the bike show Featured

Twas the night before .... the bike show Twas the night before .... the bike show
Eric LarsonWell actually it is the night before the Calgary show and I have one more week to wait.
I just traded in my 2009 Honda Varadero last spring for a new Africa Twin Adventure Sport and like most of you I don't need another bike. After all the 2013 Victory only has 100 000 kms on it. 
Eric Larson1Last year that Vic took me to Cody, Idaho Falls, and into Georgia and Tennessee for the Tail of the Dragon,  Blue Ridge Parkway and many more. It led a few rides for both the Blue Knights and also for charity. Of great pride was Tyler's ride, in which a young man with severe mobility issues joined the biker fraternity, in a ride that saw 50 bikers make a dream come true.
Oh I don't need another bike, heck I can't afford another bike ..... but..... well.... maybe the bug will bite yet again.  It will be interesting to see the new Indian, sit on a few Harleys and to check out the new HD Adv bike. 
My new 2019 Africa Twin took me into the Yukon last year, around BC and touched Saskatchewan. This year it will take me to Prescott Arizona,  over to the east coast and back through the eastern provinces.  I am already looking at maps and planning the 7 week trip. 
What I love most about the bike shows is breaking up our winter doldrums with dreams, and comradary.  I hope to see some of you there and please say hi if you see me. 
Let's compare notes after the show. Let's see what memories are made this day and what our memories will be riding in the future.
Till next time, drive safe, dream big!
