    These days we snap off digital images with abandon. Most of mine will sit on hard drives for the rest of their days. But once upon a time I loved a bike so much I sat her out in the sun, so as the light caught a sparkle of the mirrors. And then I took a roll of 24 film (a student who rarely splurged on the 36) and used up more than 10% of it on my fine, fine machine in the meadow. At the time it was almost all I owned in the world and all I owned of any real value. I paid the extra to develop it.

    Even more amazing is. Just how quite the engine is at idle. I have never heard a guzzi engine so smooth and quite.

    The view from the house we rented, directly west of Franklin in the Huon Valley, plenty snow to play in, :wink:
    that's why the 'ice road', down into '12 Alpine didn't worry me, strangely I like riding snow & ice, must be the challenge! :lol3
