    Beautiful weather this weekend here, so I made a nice trip yesterday.

    Bit of Dutch TET again, took some hours off from work and went a bit into the sand.

    We didn't had a lot of rain lately so it's starting to get dusty..

    And as all know who own a Guzzi V85TT it's not a real light machine so a bit a rain on these backroads would be nice. Because if this sand becomes any deeper it's going to be more than a hand full to keep the bike upright.

    A couple of free days, acceptable weather and a nice V85TT. Guess what I did today?

    It was a nice ride, about 200 km on small roads with almost no traffic. I even thought about taking my camera with me. No selfies - that’s something for pretty girls with a new eyeliner... :toney - but I think you’re more interested in pictures of the bike anyway. :lol3

    It's such a lovely bike! It is by no means perfect, but I'm getting more and more attached to it.

    A few water crossings. Found a field with old cars and tractors. I really like where the V85 is taking me.

    Had the first decent ride for a long time. Went around parts of Durham and Northumberland. Took this pic at Rookhope Arch, it's the remains of a 2 mile long horizontal chimney used to take away fumes from the nearby lead smelting works.

    Very nice photography! I've added a couple to my screen saver folder. Especially like the composition of #2.

    Who needs an optional centerstand, when there is a mud pit nearby?

    Just picked this baby up, giving this adventure thing a serious try. Let's see how long it takes until I drop it the first time ... =)
