Last week I had the good fortune of finally meeting Danielle Hebert, Canadian recording artist and motorcycle rider. I discovered her blog last year when she sold all her belongings, vacated her apartment and decided to ride her Suzuki GS750 across the country.
She wrote about our chance meeting HERE . She was having trouble with her BMW K75
and had to replace her head bearings. I noticed the photo was taken at EMS: Essential Motorcycle Services where I also service my V-strom so I mentioned this to Ted one evening on my way home. He managed to get Danielle to come back on Friday night for his BBQ .
I didn't realize that my bike was overdue for service, so I asked if they could do a quick oil/filter change. EMS has female motorcycle mechanics so my V-strom gets the gentle touch today
Here's Danielle, she's the one on the right
I ask her if I could snap a few photos for my blog. Here she is posing with Beowulf, her Beemer K75
We talk for a while about bikes and her travel plans. She is leaving town in a couple of weeks bound for Montreal
We walk over to my V-strom. It is taller than she is used to but she agrees to climb on and pose for another photo
She is so photogenic and I am mesmerized with her French accent
Soon it is time to leave. Danielle has plans to visit some scenic sights in Alberta on her way across Canada. I asked her to take a few more for me so I could tag along. I wish her a safe journey
I hope our paths cross again
