So I headed up for Port Alberni on sunday at like 6:15 pm, I stopped at duncan for like 15 minutes and ate some chilli at wendy's. Then I rode to Nanimo and took a stop to take a pee . I then rode up to port this was the best section right after leaving parksville/qualicum where there was no more straight highway. It was fun to go though some twisty;s at cameron lake then rip though the cathedral grove and up the mountain to enter port.
I then went to McDonalds for a quarter pounder which was dam good and then I watched some malcome in the middle, spent about 20 minutes there.
All in all it got to my buddies cabin at 9ish so it took 3 hrs but only 2hrs of riding to port.
Then today I was like lets go check out my cabin, so we try to use his boat but its a POS and doesnt start, so hes like lets take the car, being all motorbike excited im like ill take my bike. (I should have just got in the car) So he leaves and I rip to my cabin. We look around and I see how much damage was done to the roof of the cabin when a tree fell on it.
It was hot so I jumped in the lake and once I was dry we headed back.
So I was going along and bitchass buddy was right on my ass so I sped up a little and then there was a straight so you know how the story goes VROOOOOOOOM, then a turn and then a beuatiful fucking white cop car, I hit the brakes but there is no reason im fucked and I know it, he hits the lights slams on his brakes trys to turn but my friend is in the way. I pull over my freind goes by and the cop pulls up behind. I think he thought I was going to run cause he slammed his brakes on hard and the back end fishtailed as he tried to turn.
So he was like you know the posted speed is 80, the radar picked you up at 146km/h. I was like SHIT so then I gave him my insurance and license and he went back to his car. All i could think about was the EXCESSIVE ticket I was going to get, like $460 plus 6 points = well way too much like $800. So I am just shaking my head and sit down on the side of the ditch. I then think maybe if I tell him I never speed he will cut it down. I have not got a ticket in 4 years and only got 1 the first year of driving and guess where it was .2 of a km south of where I got this one, go figure, going about the same speed in a truck and it was the highway patrol. Anyways he came back and said "well you have a good record but I have to give you a ticket because you were 66km/h over the limit" He then said this is usually a $460 excessive ticket but I will give you the middle one. He then said that you are not saving money or maybe he said you still have to pay I dont know as I was just glad I was not getting the excessive. Then I signed the sheet and rode back feeling like shit. I was going to by a steering damper but that will have to wait now. I guess on my way home tommorow morning I will stay under speed.
The funny thing is I always tell ppl to stay behind the speeder, which I always fallow, but this time I was the speeder and my freind was behind.
Well I am never speeding in that section again.
Thats my story of my first long riding trip.
