When you want - I will be ready (But a winter ride, blades of bike lights against the snow with the stars on backplane?)

Your food pics made me droooool...
Why after your portrait of the cook, I expected exactly the kind of lunch you got? expressive !

Hi mac inger,
Sure? Well, not to miss a thing ...


For the movie:
Panasonic NV GS-500
Kenko Wideangle-Converter
Manfrotto metal tripod (the aluminium ones don't stand tracks very long)

For the pictures:
Canon EOS 30D body
Canon EOS 20D body (sensor crash in Tunisia, replaced by a)
Canon EOS 40D body
Canon 3.5-5.6 10-22mm lens
Canon 2.8 17-55mm lens
Canon 2.8 70-200mm lens
Canon 1.8 85mm lens
Canon TC80N3 (remote timer, most important part of all for me)
Canon G9 bridge camera
Canon WP-DC 21 (underwater housing for the G9)

... and no, I'm not sponsored by Canon


Photo taken by kktos.

And thought on the process? That's pretty simple. Delete the bad ones

Cheers

6th - 8th of March

This is my inofficial setting-off day. Inofficial because I'm still waiting for the white HP2. But the white tank hasn't made it's way from OZ to Europe yet. I decide to leave beautiful Marseilles now to stroll around. I'll be back here for the official start

On top of the hill you see Marseilles landmark, the church of Notre-Dame de la Garde.






This monument is the visual gateway to Northern-Africa where France held territories for a long time. I'll be there soon, in Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia. That's at least what I believe now. But who knows his fate? Planning often replaces contigency by error




I'm following the rocky coastline a bit until I reach the vast beaches west of Marseilles. A good spot to regain some riding abilities on tracks and on sand.




The plage de L'Espiguette is completely abandonned in early spring. Perfect!





This is the first time I say "Halleluja, what a bike!" I've been riding an HP2 one or two years ago in Tunisia for a short while but I've completely forgotten how easy and powerful at the same time this thing behaves.






The plage de L'Espiguette and the nearby town of La Grande Motte is the first chance to meet an ADVinmate, kktos. Not knowing each other before, he told me when I was seeking some info here on the board that I will necessarily pass his home. It's right on the shore and if I only follow the coastline I cannot miss it.



Ok, somewhere over there ...

Hi Dave,
yes, you're so right. If I try to imagine how my pics would turn out if I'd have only followed a single of your advices ... world press award nominees

Have a nice evening!
Cheers

Dirk

Perché no? Let's say spring, there'll still be enough snow, won't it?

9th - 11th March

When I met kktos for the first time I was impressed by his excellent hospitality and moreover his idea about riding. A true adventure rider. What I didn't knew that time is that I would meet him later on that journey again. Several times ... But first things first




kktos introduced me to the region between the city of Montpellier and the Camargue, western Europes largest river delta.



The Camargue is home to some ancient places like the town of Aigues Mortes, meaning Dead Waters. Louis IX had built the town in 1240 as a port. In his days France didn't have a port in Southern France. But he needed one for several reason. The most important might have been to embark the 7th Crusade. Also the 8th Crusade set off from Aigues Mortes.



Over the centuries river Rhône sedimented that much material that nowadays the ancient port is 8kms from the shore.



kktos enjoyed a superb night sky right in front of the city walls ... while I was trying to take a proper picture ...



Next morning I went for a trip to another legendary spot: Les Saintes Maries de la Mer.



But I see Les Saintes Maries only from far. A little problem on the HP2 forced me to have a first in-depth analysis of the electrics. The starter engine didn't like to disconnect from the gearbox after starting the engine ...
