Wow. Don't you love it when the stars align and things progress smoothly and unexpectedly. Retirement is rapidly approaching (June) and I have been planning my first big unsupported to the Baja. I was planning on using my MTB until I attended the Toronto Bike Show on Friday. We had just experienced a nasty winter storm; snow, ice, freezing rain and rain and I was ready to take the train to the show. I decided to drive instead and boy.....am I glad I did. I had the opportunity to pick up a Devinci Destination for $1000.00 Canadian. I thought this was a good deal. I waited and walked around a bit more and came upon a smaller booth that also had a Destination. Perfect size, great parts and the price new.... $750 Canadian taxes in. I bought it, took it home and placed it in the kitchen with a sign saying Happy Birthday (from my wife). When I came home from Hockey the wife was in tears. Tears of joy and tears of wondering if I would be touring the world for the rest of my life.
Retirement, here I come. Time to actually ride, ride, ride.
