Lessons Learned

  • The only thing worse than trying to scrape a dead bee off your helmet visor at 120km/h is realizing the bee is not dead and that the bee is not stuck on the the outside
  • Iguanas are nature's little way of saying "slow down"
  • "Waterproof" is a term that is open to interpretation. Waterproof riding boots can double as sponges when in a pinch.
  • Stop is merely a suggestion. So are any other traffic signs for that matter.
  • Dogs like motorcycles and will chase them..... relentlessly.
  • Geckos are cute in the Geicko commercials. Geckos are not cute when they jump on you when you're stuck fumbling for your keys in a dark hallway.
  • Cleaning your helmet is very important. It doesn't do anything to protect the helmet itself, but ants sure seem to love baked on bug guts and will come from the far stretches of any hotel room to snack on these delectable morsels.
  • Coffee is a "sometimes drink". Guzzling an XL Timmies at 4 in the afternoon is a staple in at 4pm in the afternoon here gets you some really peculiar looks and giggles from the kitchen staff.
