    Yesterday the sun shone (rare this August:D)..................so I fancied a day in God's Own Country

    I headed up to Masham and over to Leighton Reservoir, then over Dallowgill Moor......................the heather was in full bloom and spectacular:thumb

    Gorgeous shots. :clap I would love to do some riding over there; especially making a trip to the Isle of Man. The wife still has a grandmother and a few aunt, uncles and cousins in England. Thanks for posting. You're lucky...would be great to go for a ride and then hit a pub for a pint.:freaky

    I also think you guys have some pretty sweet magazines devoted to motorcycling. I like MCN and some of the others like Ride and Bike (if it's still around).
