Pootling around

Had a fabulous day today taking 7 hours to cover 300km...

Rode with a great bunch of guys who looked out for the noob on the Vee with a knackered front tyre. Approximately a third of the ride was on really cool, windy, gravel roads. A bit of rain towards the end but otherwise pretty good weather-wise.

More pics here and some video to come.

I love that area there are some fantastic roads in there. Thanks for posting.

BTW. Is that a DR Big parked three along from the Strom?

Yep, a DR800 and I have to say it looks fantastic! It is a '92 model but looks like it just left the showroom - barely a mark on it. But he still left me for dead in the stony stuff...

V-Strom count for the day: 2 Vees, one Wee. Also 3 DR650's, 3 Transalps and 3 Beemers.

Just got through editing some video from yesterday. There's quite a lot so I've created a playlist.

This is where I went:



Brilliant day!
