    Yeah, that’s why I never showed up. I have a GS, you know.

    How many of you were / are there?

    Have fun!

    What a beauty! And the bikes are not that bad either!

    Is there a next pic where the guy and the bike are rolling down the hill or was it a happy ending? ;) 2AF8E10C-5CA4-446A-AE46-3C70D51902D0.jpeg

    A great day meeting up and putting faces to names (advrider handles)

    Took the backroad to Mangamaire (which is itself a bit of a backroad) on the way home.

    Thanks everyone for a great weekend.

    Really enjoyed it.

    @KiwiPewe is enjoying some homemade date, walnut and cinnamon scones and a cup of coffee before he heads to the ferry.
