It was just a brutal day today...nice weather, nice roads, horrible luck.
Myself, Sewman, Hu99 and Human head over to the island for a nice relaxing ride out to Tofino and back. Nothing too major, we had done the road once before.
First of all, we lose Human about 5 minutes into the ride, at like 10:30am...we wouldn't be seen again until 1:30 or so.
Then about 50kms away from Tofino, at like 1:00pm...I lose traction on some gravel, my bike slides for about 20ft (along with me) and ends up in a four foot deep ditch, after plowing through a traffic sign. I'm okay, but my new (to me) bike is totalled.
At that point Human and Scooter6R show up to the crash scene. Whatever, my bike's gone. We head back to Pt Alberni to grab some lunch (I'm riding bitch on Sewman's ZX-6).
When we get to Pt Alberni, Hu99's ZX-9R has a puncture in the rear tyre. So he's kinda screwed. So we go the only bike shop in Alberni...this is just before 4pm, and the shop closes at 4:00pm...so we think we're okay. But the owner decided to close up early, and it look slike he's been long gone.
So Sewman, goes to Canadian Tire and grabs a tyre patch kit to patch up Lloyd's bike. We grab some lunch in Pt Alberni and head home.
I think the only good points of the day were that we barely made both of our ferry sailings.
But other than that...a really shitty day.
