After last post, I was able to use the bike every day for a week, either to go drop my oldest daughter at her day camp, or running some errands.

Then, nothing for 2 full weeks.

I ordered and received a RAM Mount X-Grip setup to mount my phone, but I didn't even have a chance to test ride it.




So today, given that the weather was a superb 21° C, sunny (albeit a bit windy), and that I was also out of beer, a perfect excuse for a small run was found.



FJ09, the perfect bike for a beer run.

And the X-Grip setup is perfect, my phone lies just below the dashboard.

I really thought my riding season was over in September.

I went to Germany for work in October, and what was planned for 2 weeks got extended to 3, and I had a mandatory 2 week quarantine when I got back home.

But to my surprise, the weather last weekend was absolutely perfect (sunny, 20 °C), and my FJ buddy messaged me to see if I wanted to go for another family ride. The timing was perfect, with my last day of quarantine being last Friday.

A third friend joined on his MT-10 with is daughter, and off we went on a short ride on one of the few nice roads within 1h of Montreal.

We stopped for lunch at our destination, a small village with a nice diner.



My burger was average at best, but the "small" poutine I ordered as a side was delicious.




When I stopped for fuel at the end of the ride I noticed I had just reached 8500 km.



That put my total for 2020 at a pathetic ~700 km. Hopefully next year I'll use it more.
