Today we took the bike 2-up (that means I was on the back rather than us each riding our own motorcycles). We’ve never done it before but a trip around the town proved to be quite easy, so we went out for a long ride. We wanted to ride up to Lake Erie, but we got about halfway there and decided to go a different direction.
Google Maps tells me that we went about 130 miles. However, my butt says otherwise! Good grief I was uncomfortable back there. And, even worse, bored. I’m not sure if it’s just because the roads we took were flat and boring or if it’s just because I enjoy riding my own bike more than being a passenger. Regardless, I was ready to go home pretty much immediately after we stopped to get lunch. Except we mistakenly misread the directions and ended up going a full extra hour longer than we needed to to get home. Bleh.
I have dreams of taking long road trips across the US, but I think for now I need to work on riding around Ohio to build my endurance up! And save some money for a fancy comfortable seat to replace the one that came with the bike!
