  1. I had a ride around some trails i used to ride regular 10 or more years ago just to see if they were still passable. Because of all the rain we've had everything was soaking and the trees were raining on me even though there was no rain falling on them This is quite a steep slope it doesn't look it in the photo took me three attempt's to get up it On the top it was quite foggy, i did want to get on top of the coal tips looking down to Aberfan to take a photo but it was too foggy so stayed in the forestry It was quite eerie in the fog and i got lost a couple of times, rode off in one direction and 15 minutes later found myself back where i started LOL and of course being wales there was plenty of water on the ground to play in Now I've refreshed my memory of the route through i can return and do a bit more exploring

  4. Had a great ride today on the Honda. When I left home it was dark and cloudy so the autumn colours looked even more brilliant. Then it started to rain and back to sun by the time I got home. Such a nice time of year to ride. Have a good weekend everyone!

  5. Tried the hypnotism gig about 10 years ago , didn't do a thing for it. However, as a side effect everytime I see a hot young lady now my stump rises up rather than my knob ..........

  6. Generally I'll use Google Maps to find abandoned locations, and then switch to Google Earth to get a better idea of what's there. Because where I go there's no street views. Today I located an abandoned country house, but on checking Google Maps there appeared to be something behind it. No idea what exactly because it was too blurred to be able to see. So off I went to reach the country house.......and then investigate what was behind it! It could have been anything......midget sodomites, machete-wielding psychopaths.......or even worse, dumb fucking Brits! The house was completely sealed with no way to get access......and it was one of those creepy ones where the shutters move now and again because there are birds inside. At the side of the house there was an old cave which had been dug into the hillside. I followed the path and got behind the house itself! The pathway continued on.......which presumably led to whatever it was that showed up on Google Earth. It was a step into the unknown......but being the rugged individualist I am It didn't faze me one bit! Shit.....I don't even own a van! What I discovered was very surprising......a network of abandoned caves in ruins because the hill they were built into appeared to have collapsed in places. When you find something where the upper structure has collapsed and the flooring is subsiding in places, it's a dangerous environment! But I'm a thrill seeker and that's how I get a buzz......so in I went! At this point I was now inside the hill itself! This was where I was inside......and going through the hill itself. I emerged from the other side of the hill..... ......and then followed a hidden path.... .......that led me around the other side of the house! So I survived! You casuals can now get back to your fucking vans, gardening jobs, and domestic duties.......I've got everything under control!

  7. After my slightly disastrous trip to the UK and back a few weeks back I was seriously considering getting rid of the bike in fact I wasn't ever going to leave the house again. But my wife insisted that I go our for a ride so how could I refuse? We have had some serious weather going on here one day we get brilliant sunshine then the next torrential rain then sunny again. Luckily I picked a decent day for wee bimble with some of the guys around the mountains and ended up by the beach...and.... nothing went wrong!!!!!

  8. Got out for a bit lunch time. The sun over the beach makes it look nice and warm but it's a lie. Headed for some back roads and found supermarket like Petes. Ok a road as quiet as. A road with an impressive tree. A few miles on and I've no idea where I am and I took this pic. Only for the fact I got 2 churches in one pic. When I got closer I could see the one to the left was just a shell of its former self, Headed for Norwich for a cupper and home. Must admit the cold was getting to me, should have checked the forecast as it was much cooler than it looked.

  10. A sunny autumn day, started kind of sad and having no will to make lunch at home, after some work I rode to my favourite place in the hills for a burger. On the way there, I took a dirt shortcut, only 3 or 4 kms but good fun, stopped for pictures just for you guys One of my favorite bits of road There will be a car rally tomorrow on that road in previous pictures, I don't know if that's the reason why but they fixed some of the bumps cause by tree roots pushing the road up, they put patches of tarmac "fixing it", they're smooth now which spoils my advantage over sports bikes , but those kind of fixes never last and it's bound to be a potholed mess after a winter or two. Lunch, on a deserted place that is filled with bikers and cyclists on sundays Being the season, I foraged for tonight's dessert It's a nice place to stop by Stopped by my local Dainese outlet for a coffee and went in to check winter pants, I have been riding in jeans for years but feel like having something waterproof and better for winter riding this year, ordered a special size as I'm shaped oddly, waiting to see what they come up with. On the way home I took a couple of dirt roads, only to find the really fast one approaching my town is closed for works, I home they're not surfacing it ... no pictures of that. Weather turned from a chill 15º to a most excellent 23º by then, returning from the hills, my choice for a t-shirt under the basic jacket proved right. Got home in a better mood than I left, and spent the following two or three hours pulling weeds out of my garden / wild field. Now finishing a beer and this report outside in freezing wind, ready to go inside cook some grub and have some red wine , such is the life in the southern Portuguese countryside.

  13. Had a quick scoot round on the way back from the supermarket. Got Mandy's Bonnie out of the garage and fired her up as we'll need to move her across to the new house at the weekend and I wanted to check if the battery needed charging, but it was OK.

  15. Warmer today so jumped on the spider infested dominator as next-door have builders in, noisy basteds. Finally got to see what these tyres are like off road. Some deep sand further along here and once I got my arse on the back of the seat all was well. However, trying to go around a big muddy puddle too slowly the back wheel slipped in and I was nearly in the bushes. Both these lanes I used to do every weekend, the start of this one is now single track and I suspect now a foot path only. I wasn't responsible for that pile either. All the times along here I've never noticed this before. Thought I'd read it when I get home but not that easy, will have to go back sometime. Tyres seemed ok. Feels like I'm to far forward when standing so just sat back down and bimbled through it all.

  16. There is no doubt in my mind that you are a very brave man. You can clearly see that the bumming dago midgets had just gone for their lunch, you can see that they've left their musical instrument behind and had recently been chopping up firewood. You might have been bummed to musical accompaniment and then burned at the stake

  17. Milking every nice day i get here. Had to hide near the yacht club in the bay to shield myself from the wind. Best parking around. Put a skull in just enough water so it only surfaces at low tide. I stuffed it in a little cave to delay deployment. A couple of vids hardly anyone watches, so why bother wasting time editing...LOLOLOLOL!

  20. You know all this constant sniping back and forth is getting a bit wearing now, I've mostly been reading around it, but if anything it's getting worse. Why don't the main contenders just pm each other so the rest of us don't have to read it?

  30. We had a crazy storm today where the temperature went from 8 degrees to 22 in the span of 4 hours. Then a strong wind started and the clouds and sky went all dramatic and dark......it was cool to watch it move along the coast. I was sad though, as I didn't have my camera with me today, just my phone. But still, some awesome clouds that I thought to share. Perhaps the clouds were a cover for some space alien ships...

  34. I went for a spin last week as the weather was reasonable just following my nose... and was intrigued to see this sign in the middle of nowhere, down a very minor back road in the vinyards about 15km east of Chablis so I just had to go and have a look. bearing in mind that this is in the Chabls vinyards, which are mostly good to high quality wines owned by wealthy domaines in what is frankly a pretty chic area, I cannot imagine how this can exist in that environement There was no one about and it was all locked up but there being no running water or mains electricity I cannot believe it's very legal, though it's obviously been here some time as the steps to the rear of the trailor are concrete built and the ground is clearly well beaten all around it. There's a primitive sound system, or one big ampli & speaker anyway, left outside, cigarette butts in the ashtray which is still dry so not more than 12h old The yellow tape says on it " enter if you dare"... but it was locked, so I couldn't. It looks to me like a well established pot head dealership and can only imagine the hippy, psychadelic shirt wearing, dreadlocked wasters that congregate here from time to time. I am determined to return on a saturday night if I can and see what goes on. Though I suspect it may just be a summer affair.

  42. Last day of the ride today; just have to bust out 600 more miles today to get home. I haven't taken a single pic of Oklahoma or Kansas so far as, quite frankly, there's nothing to see. Just me mile munching miles across the plains - pretty boring. Looks like I'll hit a good window to get home without it snowing, but it is pretty cold. Waiting on the Sun to come up so I can get going today.
