Oh my! I have just seen this, I get endless grief off my pal Sleepyhollow99 and now it's time for revenge. Unfortunately for him he sent me this pic a while ago

I just wanted to get from Figline (AR) to Poppi without having to go all the way down to Arezzo.
Seemed like a good idea.

Not very dramatic

Though it isn't very dramatic compared to the rest of the thread I thought I'd pop up a pic from the latest outing.
Myself and a group who were buried or fallen over in other parts of the sand went for a dune (first time out) ride recently.

Needles to say it was a long morning spent falling over or digging out bikes.......

Here is one from my ever growing list of bad ideas. Too fast on inconsistent sand in direction of photo before a soft patch swallowed the front wheel and flipped us.

Actually, it was a good idea. Nice ride. This leg of it was 3,000 km in 10 days.



What's a bit of lifting between friends? Damn 4WDer was offering me a tow.

Then, I passed this sign. I had to double back to get a photo with it. The highest point my bike has yet been too! 4528 meters. 14,855 feet.




Nearly immediately after this sign, I came across an alpine lake with Flamingo’s standing in it and flying around. Cool!



I decided to take a path off the highway and go down to get a closer photo. Which is what you saw above. However… I got stuck!



Shiiiiiiiiit.



So, I tried for about 5 minutes to get it “un-stuck” before realizing I was being insane, and “trying the exact same thing over and over
again and expecting a different result.” So I took off the right side pannier.




Then I took off the left side pannier.



Next came the tires.



Damn you Flamingos for luring me down here!!!



However, with excess breathing and panting in the thin air at nearly 15k feet, full throttle tire spinning, and a bit of grunting, the bike was free, and I began the relatively quick process of re-installing the panniers and loading the tires on.
