[RL - Lloyd, Colette, Cloud - Chocobo ranch!]

*is waiting outside the church with his bike; he wasn't sure Colette and Lloyd could find his house, but he knows they know where the church is due to the geostigma stint all those months back. Has his sword out, though, since monsters still roam around this area*

*Landing her rheaird softly on the ground, Colette jumps out of the rheaird and waits for Lloyd to land. She has been to this spot before, and figured this would be the best place to look.*

[identity profile] 2007-07-22 07:51 am (UTC)(link)
*lands right after her and jumps off*

Hey, Zack!
the_zackman: (*happy ping!*)

[personal profile] the_zackman 2007-07-22 04:02 pm (UTC)(link)
Hey Lloyd, Colette! *waves and goes to meet them*

Good to see you guys again! Don't mind Cloud over there, he's just being a grump. *jerks his thumb at the blonde waiting with his own motorcycle a few feet away, arms folded and looking unwontedly serious, like usual*

The chocobo ranch is actually a bit of a ways away from here. I wasn't sure if you guys wanted to take the rheiards over or just ride double with us on our bikes.

[identity profile] 2007-07-22 04:52 pm (UTC)(link)
*Glancing over at the bikes, Colette turns to Lloyd and smile* Do you want to ride on their bikes? It looks like it could be so much fun!

[identity profile] 2007-07-22 06:08 pm (UTC)(link)
*doesn't really have a choice, since Colette looks so eager*

Sure, that'd be great!
the_zackman: (lovable dork)

[personal profile] the_zackman 2007-07-22 07:39 pm (UTC)(link)
All right then~ *takes his bike by the handlebars and kicks up the kickstand, nods at Cloud* You guys can decide which of us you want to ride with. It's maybe a fifteen minute drive.

[identity profile] 2007-07-22 07:41 pm (UTC)(link)
*just pulls down his sunglasses and swings a leg over Fenrir, indifferent to who rides with him* Seventeen.
the_zackman: (you go do that.)

[personal profile] the_zackman 2007-07-22 07:43 pm (UTC)(link)
Close enough~ *waves it off*

[identity profile] 2007-07-22 09:34 pm (UTC)(link)
*Colette eyes both Zack and Cloud, before grinning* I'll go with Cloud, if that's okay.
the_zackman: (we're friends right?)

[personal profile] the_zackman 2007-07-23 07:52 pm (UTC)(link)
Okay~ We've only got one passenger helmet, so Colette should probably take it. *lifts the back seat of his bike and pulls out the helmet, tossing it to Cloud before mounting his bike and gunning the engine*

[identity profile] 2007-07-23 07:53 pm (UTC)(link)
*catches the helmet and hands it to Colette as she approaches* Here. Do you need help getting up?

[identity profile] 2007-07-23 09:14 pm (UTC)(link)
Thank you *Grabs the helmet and puts it over her head* And, I think I can make it up, but thank you for asking! *climbs on top of the bike*

[identity profile] 2007-07-23 09:23 pm (UTC)(link)
*climbs up behind Zack*

Hey, can these things go fast?
the_zackman: (ah but you see)

[personal profile] the_zackman 2007-07-23 11:12 pm (UTC)(link)
Sure can, so hold on tight. Don't want you guys falling off! *has to half-shout over the engines as Cloud starts Fenrir up. Puts his own sunglasses on and makes a hand signal to Cloud, who gives him the thumbs up in return* Here we go~!

*kicks the bike into gear and takes off with a bit of a showy start, getting the front tire off the ground a bit before levelling out into a stable drive*

[identity profile] 2007-07-23 11:23 pm (UTC)(link)
*motions for Colette to hang onto the belts that keep his duster on, then shifts Fenrir into gear and follows with considerably less showing off, keeping pace with Zack as they head out onto the highway leading east*

[identity profile] 2007-07-23 11:54 pm (UTC)(link)
*Colette nods her head, grabbing the belts as Fenrir begins to move. She shuts her eyes and lower her head as Fenrir moves faster. She was always use to flying though the air with her wings or rheaird, but this was different for some reason.*

[identity profile] 2007-07-24 02:10 am (UTC)(link)
*grins as they start picking up speed, and then leans forward so Zack can hear him*

This is great!
the_zackman: (heeeey!)

[personal profile] the_zackman 2007-07-24 07:19 am (UTC)(link)
*grins back over his shoulder* One of the best ways to travel!

*road is almost completely clear of traffic this far of Edge, so he doubles in the lane with Cloud. They catch the attention of a couple of monsters, but are going way too fast to be caught anyway*

[identity profile] 2007-07-24 07:21 am (UTC)(link)
*notices Colette huddling, but can't do anything about it while driving, so he just concentrates on keeping the ride as steady as he can. smiles faintly at Zack's enthusiasm*

[identity profile] 2007-07-25 04:46 am (UTC)(link)
*After driving for a few moments, Colette opens her eyes and glances around. She sees the monsters, but realizing that the bikes are too fast for them, she eases a bit.

She watches the scenery rush past her, and begins to enjoy the ride*

[identity profile] 2007-07-25 05:02 am (UTC)(link)
*has to blink an awful lot due to the wind in his eyes, but is enjoying this like nothing else*

Is this how you travel all the time?
the_zackman: (:D)

[personal profile] the_zackman 2007-07-25 06:58 am (UTC)(link)
*shouts over the wind and the engine* Most of the time! You can usually push a bike harder than you can push a chocobo. Cid's got an airship, but it's the only one so far, so we have to beg him for a ride if we need one.

[identity profile] 2007-07-25 07:02 am (UTC)(link)
*o hay, there's a sharp bend coming up in the road, and I've got an inexperienced passenger. shouts so Colette and Lloyd can hear him*

Lean towards the inside of the curve when we go around the bend!

[identity profile] 2007-07-25 03:59 pm (UTC)(link)
O-Okay *Colette shouts as she leans towards the curve and takes the sharp turn, she closes her eyes, but she's laughing about it, so still enjoying herself!*

[identity profile] 2007-07-26 02:46 am (UTC)(link)

*leans into the curve, not the least bit nervous*
the_zackman: (this is my generic face)

[personal profile] the_zackman 2007-07-26 03:17 am (UTC)(link)
*pulls out of it with no mishaps* You guys are pretty good at this! You sure you've never been on a bike before?

[identity profile] 2007-07-26 03:23 am (UTC)(link)
*looks up and sees the Chocobo Farm as a nearing speck on the horizon, glances over at Zack and then back at Colette with a slight, almost mischievious smile, as if asking her permission to try something*

[identity profile] 2007-07-26 03:38 am (UTC)(link)
*Colette blinks at Cloud with some confusion, but then gives him a smile, she's ready to do anything he wants to do.*

[identity profile] 2007-07-26 03:46 am (UTC)(link)
Nope, but the rheairds aren't much different! Except they fly.

[identity profile] 2007-07-26 03:51 am (UTC)(link)
*having got confirmation from Colette, suddenly opens up the engine and tears off down the road with no warning. Hey, it's easier to win races when the other person doesn't know you're starting them*
the_zackman: (wait what huh?)

[personal profile] the_zackman 2007-07-26 03:54 am (UTC)(link)
Wha--hey--Cloud!! *THAT IS TOTALLY UNFAIR. Kicking into gear and tearing after you, IT IS SO ON NOW. Better hold on tight, Lloyd, we're now passing the 100mph mark*

[identity profile] 2007-07-26 03:58 am (UTC)(link)
*Very fast speeds! Colette wraps her arms around Cloud, not wanting to let go. She's never gone this fast in the rheaird. She glances behind her shoulder to see where Lloyd and Zack are*

[identity profile] 2007-07-26 04:06 am (UTC)(link)
*surprise is quickly overcome by glee, he hangs on as they take off!*
the_zackman: (cocksure)

[personal profile] the_zackman 2007-07-26 04:20 am (UTC)(link)
*catching up in incriments! It's going to be close, though--Zack's bike isn't anything like Fenrir's model, and he's having to push it a lot harder. Has some tactics, though! Like tacking back and forth across the road until--oh look, Cloud, I just cut in front of you. Hope you like the view, you're going to be seeing it all the way to the ranch*

[identity profile] 2007-07-26 04:22 am (UTC)(link)
*damn you and your hunk of junk taking up the road. Tries to edge around you, but gets cut off every time, you know me too well. :< Revs the motor in an attempt to scare you out of the way*

[identity profile] 2007-07-26 04:24 am (UTC)(link)
*enjoys the ride, totally hoping that they will win against the others*
the_zackman: (for the Planet)

[personal profile] the_zackman 2007-07-26 04:52 am (UTC)(link)
*would say something, but opening your mouth at these speeds is just asking to choke on a bug. Waves cheerfully back at Cloud, that revving only proves that you're about to lose and can't do anything about it. The ranch is coming up pretty fast now~*

[identity profile] 2007-07-26 04:58 am (UTC)(link)
*we're not there yet, you know. And fine, there's more than one way to get around you. Lifts his bike over the curb and passes Zack on the unpaved field, dirt being thrown up behind him in a cloud from his tires, then drops back onto the road in front of him*

[identity profile] 2007-07-26 05:01 am (UTC)(link)
*holding on for dear life, wasn't expecting to take a different route, but once safely on the road, Colette giggles because now they are winning!*

[identity profile] 2007-07-26 05:03 am (UTC)(link)
*rolls his eyes as Cloud pulls ahead, but is still having tons of fun, and has a big grin plastered on his face*
the_zackman: (O_o)

[personal profile] the_zackman 2007-07-26 05:16 am (UTC)(link)
*aww, no fair! And now we're too close to the ranch for me to pull the same trick. Tries to edge in front again, the two going nearly neck-for-neck as the ranch gates race towards them*

[identity profile] 2007-07-26 05:33 am (UTC)(link)
*puts on a last bit of speed as they reach the gates, his engine pushed to the limit as he blows through just a few seconds before Zack does, quickly switching gears back down and helping stop the bike by turning it sharply sideways and dragging a U-ey in the dirt. Just smirks at Zack*
the_zackman: (you really wanna do that?)

[personal profile] the_zackman 2007-07-26 05:40 am (UTC)(link)
*that's horrible for your tires, you know. Stops with considerably less tiretracks and finally cuts the engine, although the chocobos in the nearby corral are raising a bit of a riot now. Raises his sunglasses and smirks back at Cloud*

Don't look so smug, I'll beat you next time.

[identity profile] 2007-07-26 01:26 pm (UTC)(link)
*Colette sighs after the sharp turn, this whole thing nearly gave her a heart attack, she she still had fun. She lifts the helmet from her head*

That was a lot of fun!

[identity profile] 2007-07-27 04:18 am (UTC)(link)
*jumps off the bike*

That was awesome! Can we go again?
the_zackman: (too cool for words)

[personal profile] the_zackman 2007-08-10 03:36 am (UTC)(link)

*not posing rly*

Sure thing! We'll race again on the way back. And this time we'll win.

[identity profile] 2007-08-10 03:40 am (UTC)(link)
*rolls eyes at Zack's posturing, opens his mouth to say something but winces as the chocobos raise a particularly loud ruckus. and o look, the ranch owner is coming out and not looking too happy about his birds being disturbed. dismounts his bike and kicks down the kickstand*

You keep telling yourself that.

*ignores Zack's indignant "That's my line!" and heads over to placate the owner and see if he can't negotiate a chocobo rental*
