Last Sunday, I had a nice ride on the Nova Scotia south shore and posted few pictures on my facebook page.
Charlie posted the following comment: good to see Bert!
Then I realized that other than my K bikes, very few pictures of me were ever posted. I am mostly known by my avatar.
Here are few pictures to correct it.

On the highway with a big smile.

Looking at the picture, I realized how much the windshield of the sidecar is bending with the wind pressure. The top is normally straight but on the picture it bows in.(Speed was about 120km/h)

A friend resting in the sidecar during a stop.

+1 on previous comments.

Good to see the rig out and about Bert...and good luck explaining to Penny why you happen to have another woman in the side car!

The country looks a little greener than when I visited - long may your riding season last.

Nice to see you out and about Bert, but mon ami your sidecar, she is on the wrong side.
Hopefully we get some of that sun here this weekend.

Easy!

When I got the sidecar I asked Penny to at least sit in to see how comfortable it is
Her answer: "No I am not interested!"
I then told her that I have only 2 choices: Get a dog or a mistress....
Without thinking she replied "I don't want another dog"
Guess what... no alternative!
The lady is just a very funny girl riding her own bike.

After almost 30 years of marriage, Penny should know me better.
I took a break on riding for more than ten years. Two month after I had to put my best buddy down (14 YO black lab), I told my wife that I wanted to get another puppy.
Her answer: "No, I want to be able to come home on Friday night and be able to go on week ends without worrying about finding a doggy sitter."
(Interestingly, at the time I was looking at buying a convertible car).
I then told Penny: "a 2 seaters would be good?"
Thinking that I was looking at a convertible car she replied "I guess so"
My answer: "Thanks honey, I will find a motorcycle"
And this is how 5 days later I got the K75.

In the last 2 months, I clocked over 7K on "small" daily rides. I am waiting for my antique plates to get the other k100 and the k75 on the road.

Today I went to another ride just to get lunch (about 250kms). Sunday I was with the beauties, today I was with the uglies
