Aug 4, 2015. Back home after 8600 KMs on the Harley

On Aug 4th, I made it home around 4:30 and the Harley had logged 8600 kilometers for my trip. Hoorah!  My trip took me from Ajax, Ontario to Barstow, California and back via Route 66.

Just as I got into Durham County and I got drenched by rains. As I was on the 407 during rush hour, pulling over to dawn rain gear was not a good idea. The weather finally abated once I rolled into Ajax, but I was soaked to the bone.

After a long and grueling ride home on a shattered and a battered motorcycle operated by a road rashed and bruised rider, there was this rainbow at the end of my street. My beloved girlfriend, Melissa, came out to greet me and my two parrots were super excited to have me home. I managed to quickly grab a shot seconds before the rainbow vanished.


Now I don’t believe in cheesy metaphors, pots of gold at the end of the rainbow, signs from above or any of that mystical BS*. That said, it was indeed a nice symbol to see as soon as I got home.

*Although I’d be satisfied with a drunk Irish leprechaun at the end of the rainbow.

Over the next few weeks, I’ll be posting photos and videos from the trip.

  1. Was a wonderful day in so many ways, and since I do believe in metaphors, or signs I would say you had a very welcoming rainbow after your long trip.
