Ontario Motorcycle Rides
The one that almost got away.

It was spring of not-so-long-ago and my girlfriend had finally started riding. While I took my time warming up my faithful old carborator bike, she fired up her new fuel-injected sport bike and took off on me.
Now, you need to understand, whenever my girlfriend has taken off on me on a bike, bad things have happened. Like the time I told her to take things slowly around the parking lot. She gave me the "yeah yeah" and rolled her eyes. Then she rolled my first motorcycle across the asphalt. I digress...
I sped off after her and before you know it we were riding around the airport. It was her first time leading and a plane was landing up above, so close over our heads it seemed like we were a wheelie away from touching it. Naturally my girlfriend was a bit in awe. What snapped her out of it was my voice screaming in her helmet intercom system "YOU'RE RUNNING A RED LIGHT!"
She hammered the brakes hard and there was smoke coming up from her tires for a good 20 feet and even after she stopped, in the middle of the intersection, panicked and embarassed. That was the last time she took off on me.
