A beautiful day last Friday for a ride on the road less travelled ! This looks good, let's give it a go...great trail.....oh, nice downhill....little sandy....oh....little muddy....ride through ruts full of water....cool...oh-oh.....downhill cool run is now a steep slick uphill.....with a street tire no less....stuck in a rut somewhere north west of Alliston....get the phone number of the local towing company from Ontario Hydro truck passing...great.....they are my auto club dealer.....NOT on unassumed roads !
He arrives with a flatbed and a four wheel drive front end loader, comes down the hill, puts slings around the bike and attaches chains to the bucket & lifts my baby out of the rut and backs up the hill to level ground and gets stuck in the ruts....we push the bike around the loader and I ride through water filled ruts to the road 500 feet away....loader is stuck in the ruts now and can't get out, so drives the 3 kms to the other end where I started...flatbead gets stuck in the driveway full of sand he parked in....took hime 30 minutes to get out ! Beautiful day at the end of the season !
$120.00 towing charge.....PRICELESS !!!
