  1. Hey everyone, so today is my adventure departure day. Had an early start and what a beautiful day for traveling on some ferries. Overcast with some mist in the mountains. Here’s to a new chapter. Have a great weekend everyone.

  2. As the second week of my journey starts I have had a chance to look back at the first week. We were in the backcountry fast and without cell reception for most of the week. I have just now had a few days with the internet to touch base with the world. We have already seen some amazing places but one of my favourites was a place called Marble Canyon. We camped beside Turquoise lake in the middle of this beautiful canyon. We stayed there for a few days and just enjoyed this magical place. If you look real close in about the middle of the photo you can see our little red tent....

  4. We had to make a change in plans as the weather here is very cold for Spring. Where we were headed had fresh snow the other day so we decided to hang out at a lovely B&B in the countryside for a few days. Then we are either headed to Prince George, British Columbia....or into the next Province (Alberta) to look at a travel trailer.......that's what happens when you get an internet connection after a week, you start shopping.....lol We are looking at maybe something like this...

  8. Nipped over to Norwich in the afternoon in search of a helmet, (go on Pete). Found nowt. There's a helmet city down on the south coast so maybe tie that into a daughter visit. Stopped and snapped a couple of pics and stopped off for a castle pic for Tym, think I was a tad late though.

  10. That got your attention. So on Sunday afternoon I headed north west to check out some roads for an all day ride I am planning for the future. I took the A904/905 then the A84 all the way to Loch Lubnaig in the Trossachs National park. There were hundreds of bikes out, mostly heading the other way as the A84 is a popular biking road for people returning from the Green Welly Stop at Tyndrum. I then made my way up to the A85 where I rode along the side of Loch Earn and made my way through to Crieff and onto Perth. The A84 and A85 are really good biking roads, the A84 is faster but the A85 has more to see and a generally better surface. I then took a few different roads back down to Dunblane where I swung by the cathedral to get a picture that Yen would appreciate. I then headed to Stirling and the Wallace monument for a cigar and a cup of tea, I didn’t climb the hill to Wallace House this time as it was getting late. I then headed back to Edinburgh, 185 miles round trip.

  14. Setting off on Sunday 29th May and heading to Zaragoza to meet up with a couple of UK based mates. They’re riding down from the UK over two and a bit days on a Kawasaki Versys 650 and a spangly new Husqvarna 901 Norden……….I’m going on my Himalayan because it’s the only working bike I have at the moment (might chop it in when I get back so I can start a ‘guess-what-I’m-buying’ thread). The first day is a mere 546 klms for me from home to the hotel in the city centre. Good job I’ve got a fluffy sheepskin. Anyway, the plan is to head from Zaragoza through the Picos de Europa, then south into the north of Portugal (any tips of where to head to @Pedro?), returning home on Saturday evening. It'll be a blast and we’re sticking to the smaller roads so I don’t hold them up. Might even post some photos if I get really bored.

  15. On Sunday I was helping to dig a hole in a mate's back garden for a concrete shed base. I dug out an old pair of work boots I had knocking about in my garage, they'll do I thought. Big mistake, within 15 minutes of starting work the left hand boot's sole decided to make a break for it, including a steel plate inside which I caught as I was walking and bent out of shape. I had a roll of duct tape with me so I got my mate to tape it up. That fell off after a few minutes so I did it again myself and this time really went for it. That stayed on for the rest of the day, BUT!!!! the other boot went after an hour or so and did exactly the same thing and I had used up all my duct tape. I had no other footwear for digging in (I was a long way from home) so I had to manage as best I could with a steel plate hanging out at a funny angle. I had to walk slowly lifting my foot high up on each step. I looked like one of those Dressage horses.

  21. Wouldn't have happened with a Polish parcel shelf. I have to go and check out the condition of a load of granite setts taken up and stored by a developer a few years ago. They are going back in front of some bloke off the telly's house, he specialises in historical landscapy stuff, plus English Heritage are involved so it has to be done right. I was hoping they'd be somewhere nice, you know get a ride out on a sunny day with my petrol paid for sort of thing..... Just got the address, poxy Gravesend, the jewel of Kent.

  35. So the build of track bike has started now that rugby has finished, so far I have put on the levers and rearsets and have now started stripping bits off ready for its service, ordered full service kit plus all new bearings for whole bike, caliper rebuild kits as the bike has stood dormant for 3 years it will need some tlc to get it ship shape. @boboneleg if you happen to have anything from a ninja j1 600cc laying around at work that would be suitable for the bike let me know as spares will never be turned down.

  38. Yesterday I thought It’s a nice day so I’ll take the bike out , whilst out I got in a race with a Harley Davidson , at first on the flat straight roads I had the upper hand and could stay in front quite comfortably then we hit the down hill straight and that’s when he over took me and took quite a lead , I thought I’d never catch up but when it came to the twisty uphill roads I was really on his tail , I had to peddle like mad but I managed to get back in front

  39. I made it back from the Isle of Wight tranny run bike rally. Stan the Tran was magnificent as usual. The last band on Sunday night had people quietly distributing song lyrics set to the tune of 'Stand By Your Man' to sing to him and his wife as a surprise. STAND BY YOUR STAN was a musical masterpiece. He got a bit tearful, he has had 2 rallies cancelled by Covid etc and lots of trouble getting it going again this year. Apparently a light aircraft's wheels were only a few feet above my head as I drove into rally control which is next to a grass runway. Never heard it with my earplugs in and engine running. I visited a monastery and sat in a church with orange windows on Saturday, the light inside was something else. The monastery and church were built by local bricklayers and builders using cheap Belgian bricks and it was bloody gorgeous inside. I didn't have the heart to whip out a camera as I sat inside quietly taking it all in. The grounds were really nice as well, not even an admission charge to wander around. https://quarrabbey.org/monastery/vocation/a-day-in-the-life-of-a-monk/

  41. My mate phoned tonight as i got home from work asking if i fancied a ride out on the Beta's, at first i wasn't to keen but remembered i am working away next week and probably the week after so wont get a chance for a while, it was just a local run on the mountains i haven't ridden in years Made our way up to what is locally called the tump to have a play which is this old coal tip (Photo from google) There was a few miles of horrible rutted tracks to get there had a little play on the hill climbs certainly feeling my age now i used to fly up these like they weren't there many years ago on real crap bikes just about cutting it on the new one LOL Me having a go And my mate fucking show off LOL I think my mate has a video of me at the top of this looking down. i didn't start recording soon enough when he went up i failed on the first attempt but ok on the second Some fantastic views from the top I took the easy route back down From here we moved onto our furthest point from home through lots of deep water and ruts no photos of those bits started heading back from here on the opposite side of the valley Stopped here for a photo the clouds were rolling in over the valleys in the distance with the sun going down the photo doesn't do it justice phone couldn't cope with the sun We thought we better get a move on as the sun was going down and we were having trouble navigating because they have built a lot of access roads for the wind turbines since the last time i was here which have dead ends on them so after turning around a few times we decided to cut across country to get to where we wanted to go but came across a wire strung about 3ft off the floor, without thinking i grabs hold of it to lift it up to ride under its a bloody electric fence fuck they hurt LOL anyhow we gets to where we wanted to be The ground was as boggy as i remember and my mate gets a little stuck he says its not going anywhere I said give it some gas but he was right it wasn't going anywhere (look away now Pete) LOL took us about half hour to free it the ground just didn't want to give it up My bike waiting patiently It was a straight forward ride from here and got home just after dark i need more evenings like this

  42. Well I am back, I may need a new liver, it pissed down Saturday afternoon and evening and a lot of Sunday. It pissed down on the way back this morning as well but at least the tent was dry when I packed it away. I slept great all weekend, my new travel pillow it great and I had forgotten how wonderful my sleeping bag is. No pictures as my phone only came out of the tent for about 30 minutes on Saturday, the rest of the time it was switched off. The new tour pack is 100% waterproof which is good. I ordered a bigger tent this morning though as I’m just too old to sit crouched it my current one while the weather does it’s thing. The new one will allow me to use the stove when it is pissing down and give me standing room to get changed in plus an indoor seating area.

  44. It was time to take the loved but neglected 9T out for a spin. I so wish I could stop getting on a bike stuck in a riding mode of whatever I rode last. If I hadn’t of switched the pillion seat for a seat hump I would have dumped my arse on the tarmac and waved goodbye to it sailing on without me at the very first junction, who wudda fort wringing the throttle on the Himalayan for all its worth would get you into trouble on a 110bhp bike My god I’ve missed the power, what a thrill, like a fairground ride but I decide when the go faster button is pressed, I’d almost forgotten the joys of more power than you can handle My poor little kermit arms are no match for it and I love it. Nothing like scaring the shit out of yourself for giggles! Mr Slowly’s smile turning into a grimace because I’m taking too long trying to find the sun to blot out my mosquito bite Rudolph nose I tried to take Mr Slowly for breakfast but they said they’d stopped serving breakfast half an hour early due to having so many bookings. Mr Slowly settled for coffee and cake with the good grace of someone looking forward to becoming an irascible old man, he'll be fit for this forum soon Nice time though, sun shining happy people wobbling about, got asked constantly if we were down for “that thing” eventually after the millionth throng of Harleys passed we remembered its the Harley Cider Rally in Bridgwater this weekend, wonder if Bucks currently floating in a vat of cider?! So yeh the sun shone, people smiled and I had a great ride in the beautiful verdant Somerset countryside. What’s not to like?! Rich’s cider must be doing alright for themselves, you don’t see many west country barns with doors that posh!

  46. This morning, having slept poorly and as I was putting on my boots to ride up north to my parents', I gave up on it, put on my trainers and went for a walk to try and catch the start of the Baja Oeste, which is 2 or 3km away. Got there in time for the first car about to go out. Had a little walk around, stayed on the less dusty side of the road, and had a look at race cars, I do like race cars. Angry sounding Hilux: The "Minis": A properly loud Ford A very cool Navarra setting off: I didn't take any money with me, which was not clever, it was proper hot and I fancied something cold to drink, there was a sandwich trailer there, and being lunch time a lot of people were starting to tuck into pork sandwiches seasoned with a healthy dose of dust Enough was enough, I was thirsty and hot, so went home: Walked home in what felt like proper heat, felt hotter than it was, maximum for today was supposed to be 32º
