I mostly wanted to announce that. The road into Dominical is paved. They must be happy. Less dust.
I went for a looooong ride with Honda Red Riders yesterday, over Cerro de la Muerte to Dominical beach. It was 400 kilometers from Honda SAVA headquarters in La Uruca. A ten-hour trip for me, mostly because I skipped out on lunch with my buddies from Moto Amigos, who joined Red Riders for the trip.
It was a big group, over 30 motorcycles.
Filling up at Santa Barbara gas station, I realized that being from New Jersey and Costa Rica, both of which are full service, I have never pumped my own gas. Not sure I even know how! Hahaha!
Anyhow, this weekend I will ride Storm to Manual Antonio for a 12 Step Convention there. Looking forward to some fun with my fellows and to the beauty of that area. (And the monkeys!)
Finally, I have come up with a name for my XL 200: Mustang Sally! Riding her today I realized how much I like putting my flat feet on the ground! (Storm is still tall for me at times, especially stopping while going downhill!).
FEEL THE POWER!
Date of ride: April 28, 2019.
