Yesterday afternoon, I crept away from school as early as possible (it was a professional day so that was OK) and went on a later afternoon ride. Along with Dave and me, there was a young guy who is heading up to the Yukon in a few days where he works in a camp. On his visits down here, he keeps his hand in, so to speak, and is waiting to book a time for a test when he is here.
I took the 600 again, the other guy took and 1100 - whoa! We headed out to Poco and basically rode the testing route. This time, no speeding, no missing zone changes, and I got all of my shoulder checks and intersection scans. The only error that we both made was slowing down in a school zone that didn't have the hours posted - in that case, you are only supposed to slow down if there are children on the road.
After doing the route for a while, Dave said we were both fine so we went back to Maple Ridge and on to Ruskin for a ride. It was basically uneventful but exhilarating. Got some speed up, some nice curves and I was feeling relaxed.
Upon returning to Dave's place, his words were, "You both nailed it today!"
