    Thumbs up More fun . . . . . .

    There is more than one way up onto that area Mike . . . . . taken this morning whilst out testing the latest rubber . . . . . . after finding yet another way up onto the hill . . . . . . .

    Coffee time in the middle of nowhere . . . . .


    Then wandered here and got an "Arty" shot of the machine and a nice metal structure . . . . . . . .

    Thumbs up Hibernation Time

    Final fling - Planning to lay the Strom up for the winter and continue riding my F8GS through the grimy months, so this weekend see’s it’s last outing of 2016

    Another local loop of around 90 miles took me over the hills and not too far away.











    The Thinking Mans Bike - so why have I got one?

    Thumbs up

    Tis the time after Christmas, and all around the house bellies groan. Feck this, I'm orf out on my bike

    Cairngorms, as viewed on the way from Grantown towards Tomintoul . . . . .


    . . . . and the view back to towards Grantown . . . . . . .


    And finally I find some less than scenic snow that I can park in


    Spotted AndyR34 as I approached the turning for Tomintoul, gave him & his a wave as I slithered past. Popped in to chat with him on my return to civilisation, and made full and proper use of his pressure washer to de-gundge both me and the bike - Cheers Andy

    I guess my time at charm school was wasted on yer sister then?

    Iain, - he's right on both counts, so I really can't argue with him on those comments

    Jags - F8GS makes doing certain things easy, whilst the Strom does other things slightly better than the F8GS . . . . . . . . but . . . . . . . and I've been asked this question before . . . . . . . .

    If I could have only one bike (never going to happen, so this is all hyperthetical!) it would be the F8GS. Thats as of now, whilst my failing shell can still manage to do the things my strange mind wants it to do.

    All things change with time and changing ability levels, but whilst I'm still able to make an arse of meself, the F8GS would, hyperthetically, be my one and only bike .

    I thought you said you knew my sister Steve, your memory must be failing ...

    Lesson 1: Don't mention the dog being oveweight and 'needy' - Fail :-)
    Lesson 2: Don't mention the grey/strawberry blonde/white hair - Fail :-)
    Lesson 3: Don't mention Dave... - Phew, not failed... Yet! ;-)

    She's as typical a 'big' sister as you will find, but I love her (and her chubby/demanding dog, silver hair and stroppy husband!)...
