Weatherman is calling for first snow, better yet a foot or more, and cooler temperatures over the next 5 days, so I took advantage to have one more ride this morning, it was decent 13deg C and sunny. Drove for hour and half, got half way through Sheep Falls provincial park, had my Sena playing music, heaven
Decided to check my Emails so I pulled over to the side of the road, killed the engine, music still playing, checking my Emails, looked to the left and surprise surprise a big bear just standing there looking at me, about 60ft away
He must have had a good breakfast earlier cause he didn't show too much interest in eating me
I nearly dropped my phone, did my record best time to start my FJR ( Thx Yamaha for excellent ignition system
) found the clutch with my shaky hands and started leaving. Pulled a U-turn down the road, turned back and took a few pics and short video of my friend, to share with my family and friends, as he was still standing there grazing on berries or something. I honked twice but he didn't even blink, not afraid of humans,cars,bikes...
I spent couple hrs ridding this 30km long park, up and down, saw 2 cars and 1 bike, very secluded part of Alberta during the week, nobody would have heard me crying for help
so "Thank you my furry friend, for not spoiling my lovely ride today"
