Well, last Friday I watched my car pull away and leave me with only the Harley for transportation. So of course, on Monday I get a call for a job interview – 250 miles away. The good news is that the interview is midday, so there is a chance I can ride up and back all in one day. I’ve done 400 miles plus meetings several times before, but 500 miles is about the most I’ve ridden in one day. And that was the return journey from Sturgis. And I remember that as being a long day that had a nice lunch, and not an interview, in the middle.
Did I mention the interview was in Winnipeg? Canada? I haven’t been to Canada in several years. Winnipeg is a great city, but it’s a city. I’ve never really ridden the bike in big city traffic before. Or in another country. Looks like I’m going to be in for another adventure. Well, at least so far the forecast looks pretty durn good. Upper 70s to low 80s with a small chance of showers/t-storms. We’ll see how that changes as it gets closer. I plan on leaving waaaay early in the morning to allow for rest and getting lost time. And I reserve the right to bag it and crash out somewhere on the way back. I just hope they don’t schedule me for work right away on Thursday morning, but I bet they will.
I knew this kind of stuff could/would happen, just didn’t expect it quite so soon. Well, at least there’s a dealer only a few minutes away from my interview location that I can visit. By this time next week it will be a “been there, done that, got the t-shirt” story.
Ain’t that what riding is all about?
