DAY 1: Rode 591km. I'm on a little adventure on my Vespa again. This morning I left for Saskatoon, SK. This will be a good test for my new Tucano Urbano saddlebags. First part of the day I had to ride in the rain, that I don't really mind, its actually somewhat relaxing :)

Riding in the rain for hours was also a good test for my LifeProof iPhone case... so far so good :)

Around lunch time the rain stopped, but unfortunately winds picked up and this ended up being probably one of the most challenging/difficult rides for me. I had to ride in a very strong side wind and because of the turbulence I really had to slow down or pretty much stop when I saw big semi trucks coming my way. Because of the wind my top speed at one point was only 68km/hour, full throttle.. scooter just couldn't go any faster.

Thanks to my Scala Rider, I had my phone connected to my helmet and I was able to listen to my music for the whole 9 hours of the trip :)

The drive to Saskatoon is not very exciting, this was my view for pretty much the whole day.

I made it to Saskatchewan... seems like they have tractors on every corner here :)
