so i was looking forward to my 2 days off work (yesterday/today), especially after i saw the weather forecast...with the weather this good, i decided to take a little ride towards spences bridge yesterday. man, was the ever awesome! if any of you have never done this ride, you have got to go!
another nice day today, so i decided to head up S2S, maybe up to pemberton. left at about 10am, so traffic was minimal had a coffee at the squamish 'bucks, then proceeded up to whistler. the last time i went past squamish was with my old CB450, when i was just learning, and i have got to say that that section is way, way better than vanc-squamish! had a little stop at whistler and i wanted to get home before all that traffic on the lions gate, so i decided to head back.
well, here come the expensive part...i made a stop at the chevron in squamish, then was on my way again. red light at the next intersection and when it turned green, i just had this caveman urge to open her up when i saw the long stretch of straight, open road. well, on that stretch of road were oncoming vehicles and leading the pack was an unmarked cop in an intrepid. of course i know this because it started flashing its lights, then it pulled a u-turn...uh-oh. busted! to make this already long story short, got nailed for $348: excessive speeding. what a dumb ending to an otherwise awesome 2 days off!!!
