Day two of my trip. Sunday morning I woke up bright and early as I wanted to get a head start and cross the border back into the US before there was any traffic.  I also wanted to see if I could get a couple pictures of the falls in the morning before people started to wake up.

I was up and out of the room a little after 6 AM.  The first thing I did was check the bike out.  Everything was OK, I really appreciated the hotel's dedicated motorcycle parking directly in view of the front desk to keep shenanigans to a minimum.  

My first stop was the falls. The sun was up and it was promising to be a really nice day.  I wanted to see if there was a spot where I could get a shot of the bike that also showed the falls.  I rode around back and forth looking for a spot but all of the parking was across the street from the sidewalk where you could see the water.  Finally I decided that since there wasn't anyone around that early I would quickly ride up onto the sidewalk, park, get the shot, and be gone before anyone even knew what was going on.

I found a spot without a curb and rode up onto the sidewalk, parked and grabbed my camera.  I dashed back across the street, and just as I was about to snap a picture I noticed a cop car cruising slowly past.  Ooops!  Talk about luck.  They slowed down when they got near me and one of them rolled down his window.  All he said was "there's no parking on the sidewalk" as they rolled past.  I nodded and waved and they moved on.  I took the picture, ran back across the street and took off to get gas.
