Cool Hibernation

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.

Got a little time on a forest trail and grabbed these pictures from a few short videos I took







Wandered around to the east gate lodge of Ballindalloch castle for a breather





The Thinking Mans Bike



Took the wyndy and scenic route round the hills to Dufftown and from there to Keith via some small roads . . . . .


. . . . . . . eventually pausing at Spey Bay before heading home

My gate tower looks nothing like that, I'm jealous.
I sit at the end of the drive where it doesn't exist and quaff my dram of Speyburn 10 Yr old Scotch.
I'll have to work on my pensive mood look you are sharing with your 1000!

I still have two days of ins. left but every rainy day around here and the cold, damp temps make it look like my riding is done for this year.
