    Envious of the beautiful mountain views you guys have. Here are a few shots from todays double trail bush frolicking ;) The farther you go the rougher it gets, narrowing into over grown single track. Bike handles like a champ. Love this bike!

    haha. The longer the ride, the more chance it spontaneously turns to pseudo-dreads.

    I've heard that every able bodied Swiss has a rifle in the closet. Didn't know you get a tank i the driveway too!

    IMO, the white S models have the best colour/graphics scheme.

    It is a German tank, nobody around here wants one of those in their driveways. :D The rifle thing on the other hand is pretty much true. :thumb

    The tank is situated in France on the Maginot Line at a small war memorial site / museum.

    How are you liking the hood tank bag? Any clearance issues with the bars or funkiness with fueling?

    Loving it so far! No issues, fueling is easy. Waterproof and no zippers!

    Just a guess, the second pic remainds me of Colle dell'Assietta.

    You are right, the second picture is Assietta road and the first picture is on the mountain road which starts at Col des Aravis.
