Yup, Going on a Poker Run tomorrow. Took a scoot into Penticton today (nearest Wally’s) to stock up on some things. As I was packing my things in the saddlebags a fellow (female) rider approached me. We got chatting and she showed me her bike – which is an awesome Honda Trike Conversion. Really nicely done.
Anyway she told me about the group she belongs to Okanagan Motorcycle Riders Association and also told me about a Poker Run they are doing tomorrow and invited me along.
They will be leaving Penticton (about an hour from where I am located) at 10:00AM – meaning I would have to be on the road by 9:00AM at the latest – and seeing that it is FREEZING at that ungawdly hour – and I do mean a forecasted temperature of ZERO – well there is a slim to NIL chance that I will be doing that !!! But the day promises to warm up later in the day to a nice, sunny 17C/63F – still heated gear temps for this WOOSE !!
She e-mailed me their route and I will be able to meet up with them at the last leg of the run as they will be going through Osoyoos. So I figured out the timing fairly well and have decided to meet up with them about an hour or so out of here for lunch. And then I will be able to ride back here with the group.
Looking forward to it as I haven’t been on a ‘group’ run now since I left home. Will definitely have pics to post.
