It may look easy but man is it daunting when you first are learning to take off (even slowly) on a motorcycle. Then it starts to grow on you and then you feel 1000 feet tall! My bro has been riding since high school and really knows his stuff and how to make you take the right baby steps and I'd HIGHLY recommend getting on a bike if you've never tried it. Don't dive all at once, just start as a passenger and go on the highways etc. with an experienced rider and it gets you totally comfortable. I happen to feel more cozy on a bike flying than in a car but that's just me haha. Last night I got the jacket on etc. and I wasn't just a passenger this time but started the bike myself a few times. I'm super stoked and will get two bikes once we have licenses and I've already put aside the moula for them (Trev wants a Ninja and I want a Yamaha R3 as a starter). I also happened to see a few females on bikes we passed on the roads which was super cool. Had to share just cuz!
Went to see Iron Maiden with the bro and I put together a little youtube playlist with lots of clips from last night's show at the Molson Amphitheatre. We had great seats and I was literally dead centre which was a treat! As always Maiden delivered 110% and Bruce told us that they played Toronto twice on this tour (The Book of Souls) which is amazing! I really liked Ghost too, they are dark yet melodic. Also a cool tidbit is that a kid beside us caught Nicko's drumstick and he's also a drummer so that made his year (I couldn't resist getting a photo as we've never had anything come so close to us from the stage so was pretty memorable). There were tons of young kids there who were fans which just blows my mind. Overall it was the best gift for my birthday I've had that's for sure. (added more footage 17 July 17)
I always appreciate anyone who likes my stuff but it's very cool when people read my poetry book. That aspect of my writing comes from a very different place than the day to day routine and I think it's good to look at the darkness and find it's beauty to perhaps understand better it's pull...
