Yesterday while poor Studly Doright had to toil away at the office I rode my CanAm Spyder RT out to Edward Ball Wakulla Springs State Park. From our home outside of Tallahassee it’s only about 42 miles to the park, and best of all, most of the ride was on shaded back roads with very light traffic.
Once at Wakulla Springs I walked around the park, had a light lunch, and enjoyed the scenic boat ride before starting home. I had intended to take photos for the blog, but using my cell phone as a gps ran my battery awfully low, so I only snapped a few pics:
A beautiful blue heron
A not-so-beautiful, but impressive gator
A tree framed by the window of the boat
Next time I’ll take along a charger for my phone. There were so many more shots that had to be foregone.
This was my second adventure on my Spyder, and I’m really beginning to enjoy the ride. I’m much more visible to drivers on this machine, and that’s always a good thing. The Spyder has plenty of power, and I feel comfortable in the seat. The only thing I haven’t tested yet is its performance on the interstate. Soon.
This is me pre-ride on the Spyder, before I put on all my gear:
My brother commented that I look tiny on the bike. Yay! For once something makes my butt look small.
