    Riding to the glacier ... I did not get all the way down as the road was suitably challenging and looked like a bike breaker ....

    This place is tough on bikes ... Adam caught a rock and shattered the RHS rocker cover! The KTMs have had side stand switch issues and a blown stator ...

    An amazing start to our Faroe riding time today. The weather played. I ELT and we headed up to Vagar via the Buttercup scenic route! It did t disappoint! We only did about 120 kms but it took all day!

    I’ll let the pics speak for themselves! Brilliant roads, beautiful villages and nice cliff top walking!
